    Traveling While Black

    Guadeloupe is definitly a place to discover french carribean culture : music, dance, food (accras, dombré, bokit, rhum…) and to be in contact with nature (landscapes, volcanoes, spring water, mountains, spectacular beaches).

    I really enjoyed this place and the friendly people.

    Little tips: Guadeloupe is a little island so make sure you rent a car and drive all over the island to discover, there is a lot to see.
    Places I advise: Grande souffrière, Chute cabret, Bassin paradis…

    Guadeloupe is a French island. From this island, it is possible to take a ferry to go to Marie-Galante, Les Saintes and La Désirade. Guadeloupe has different landscapes. Basse terre is green with its volcano (the soufriere) its falls (fall of the carbet) possibility of rafting in Deshaies. In the town of Deshaies I relaxed in Tendacayou (spa and jacuzzi). In Guadeloupe, I ate grilled fish with rice and red beans with Agouba. In Grande Terre, there are beautiful beaches, notably in Gosier and Sainte-Anne. The Sainte Anne beach is lit up all night and that’s great. In Saint-François I made a gyrocopter and there I could observe a magnificent view of the Grande Terre (white backgrounds, tip of the castles, whales). I went to the cousteau reserve, I rented a kayak. The view under the water is incredible because there are a lot of multicolored fish. I visited the Caret islet which unfortunately disappears over time. I have been to the Paradis Basin which is aptly named. Access is difficult when it rained the day before. There are nice bars and restaurants at the Gosier marina. I recommend this island.

    Guadeloupe is made up of several islands filled with all the nature you could ever want. A considerable portion of the main island is made up of a National Park with countless waterfalls, lakes and forestry. If you get bored of forest there are beaches all over the island each more beautiful than the next. On top of all of that Guadeloupe has a rich history, a portion of which is on display at the Memorial ATCe, a stunning and modern museum in Pointe-à-Pitre. The island is predominantly French speaking, so knowing a few words in French is a bonus but you shouldn’t have trouble getting around on English.

    A few of my girlfriends and I traveled to Guada/Gwada during Norwegian’s inaugural flights to Guadeloupe (give or take one week?). We stayed at Langley Resort Hotel Fort Royal in Pointe-à-Pitre. The hotel was decent, with the beach within walking distance (less that 2/3 minute walk).

    There weren’t many food options on site, but hotel staff was able to give us information on local eateries. I remembered a few French words, which got us around. I was celebrating an early birthday, and resigning from a job, so I just wanted to relax. A sales agent from Langley had sent an information packet regarding “things to do”on the island, which included excursions, tours, rum distilleries, botanical garden, etc.

    I’d definitely return, utilizing Google translate this time :)!

    So you’ve decided to visit paradise in the Caribbean, and now in the planning stages. If Guadeloupe is your next destination there are a few things you should know about the country. It is an insular region of France. The primary spoken language is French. You will find that English is not widely spoken anywhere on the island…… so brush on your French before you go. It is made up of a group of islands with Grande-Terre and Basse-Terre being the two largest.

    We will begin our list of top things to do at number 5: A stop that shouldn’t be missed, the Pointe des Châteaux. This amazing display of power by the Caribbean Sea is one for the books. Take the short drive out on the D118 road to reach it. There is a small parking lot and a few food stands around. You will know once you are close because the waters will be roaring in the background. There a short hike to the edge of the rough rocks and there you can witness this massive movement of nature. If you are about views then this stop is perfect for you! This attraction isn’t very handicap accessible unfortunately due to the uneven terrain.

    At number 4 on our list is the family town of Le Gosier. Specifically the small island off its coast, Îlet du Gosier. You can take a ferry to or even swim if you’re a strong swimmer since the current usually isn’t strong and the tide is rather low. It’s the perfect place to snorkel, soak up the sun, and experience a breathtaking view. There aren’t any facilities on the island so take your bathroom breaks BEFORE catching your ferry or swimming…… please don’t leave any waste on the island.

    It’s time to take a scenic drive for number 3 on our countdown to the Pointe de la Grande Vigie. Unfortunately, this site gets overlooked by many for the Pointe Dee Châteaux, but in my personal opinion, the Pointe de la Grande Vigie is much more beautiful. Since it’s not as popular it’s likely that along the D122 road you will be completely alone. Being able to take in the views and appreciate nature in solitude is one of the best gifts a vacation can offer.

    Coming in at number 2, Plage de Grande Anse not only makes it onto this list but it also tops the list of My Favorite Beaches in the World as well! The waters are calm, the sand is soft and the energy is electric. This is a great place to meet locals and pig out on all the food stands. Because it is on the more mountainous island of Basse-Terre, it provides amazing backdrops.

    The last must-see attraction, coming it at number 1 on our list is probably the most visited place in Guadeloupe……. Terre-de-Haut. Le Saints Bay, to be exact. It is worth every bit of hype believe it or not! There’s a reason it’s been voted the most beautiful bay in the world numerous times. If you are prone to seasickness, check the weather before you leave in the morning. The boat ride can get EXTREMELY rocky. Once on the island take a walk or scooter up to Fort Napoleon. From here you’ll have a panoramic view of the island and the main island in the distance. It’s a view you could never forget.
