Caribbean Islands - Guadeloupe (Chapter)
This is the Guadeloupe chapter from Lonely Planet’s Caribbean Islands guidebook.
Grande-Terre, the eastern of the two islands, has a string of beach towns that offer visitors marvelous stretches of sand to laze on and plenty of activities, while mountainous Basse-Terre, the western of the two, is home to the wonderful Guadeloupe National Park, which is crowned by the spectacular La Soufrière volcano.
- hike through the rainforest to the misty summit of the brooding active volcano La Soufrière
- nourish your inner gourmet and encounter boaties from around the world in charming Deshaies
