Guadeloupe with a difference
Guadeloupe is actually two large islands connected by a bridge over the Riviere Salee. The eastern side, Grande Terre, includes soft rolling terrain, sensational white sand beaches, resort areas and Guadeloupe's largest city, Pointe-a-Pitre. The western island, Basse-Terre offers a dramatic rain forest, towering waterfalls, magnificent beaches, a dormant volcano and Guadeloupe's capitol city, also called Basse-Terre. Although it is a French island, Guadeloupe’s people, personality and culture are the result of a harmonious blending of European, African and East Indian origins.
