Pointe-à-Pitre The Essential
Interesting

Located on Grande-Terre, Guadeloupe's economic capital is a good place to end a trip; visitors can stock up on colourful goods to be found in the town's various markets. Although it has a pleasant historic centre with colonial houses (alas not very well presented), animated by fishermen docking at La Darse, Pointe-à-Pitre remains a town usually just passed through, closing down at dusk (to the benefit of its marina and the outlying settlement of Le Gosier).
