Guadeloupe, lapped by the Atlantic Ocean and the Caribbean Sea, is a premium destination for nature lovers.
In addition to beautiful sandy beaches lined with coconut trees and turquoise water home to exceptional marine life, it boasts a superb tropical forest inland. So make sure you pack your snorkelling and your hiking gear! Whether it is on the sublime beach of Grande-Anse, the luxurious paths of Deshaies botanical gardens, or the enchanting bay of Saintes, time slips by at a deliciously slow pace.
After whetting your appetite with this picture postcard image, you may fancy a rush of adrenaline, so lace up your hiking boots and prepare to climb the Soufrière volcano, whose swirling smoke fascinates as much as its impressive silhouette. Make sure you set off on one of the countless hiking trails that will take you deep into the forest to the fabulous waterfall of Carbet.
To prolong this idyllic holiday, slip a few culinary specialties from the market at Pointe-à-Pitre, including aged rum of course, into your suitcase!
