Guadeloupe is an archipelago in the Lesser Antilles consisting of six inhabited islands and several uninhabited islands. The countries main two islands are Grande-Terre and Basse-Terre, and these are separated by a narrow sea channel called The Rivière Salée. Grand-Terre is famous for its beautiful beaches, sheltered bays and charming little seaside towns. Basse-Terre on the other hand is less developed and is home to the lush Parc National de Guadeloupe, boasting spectacular volcanic landscapes.
Hotels in Guadeloupe exude authentic Creole charm and many offer excellent value for money. Offering comfortable accommodation and boasting stunning locations, it is easy to find yourself a slice of paradise when it comes to choosing a hotel in Guadeloupe!
Guadeloupe is ideally suited to travellers looking for something a little more off the beaten track as it offers visitors a unique and exciting holiday experience. There are plenty of beautiful beaches to be enjoyed, but visitors can also take part in a range of exciting activities such as hiking in the National Park and climbing La Soufrière volcano. As a French overseas territory, the islands are a fascinating melting pot of Caribbean and French culture, with bakeries selling croissants next to market stalls selling fresh coconuts.
Guadeloupe is perhaps best known amongst UK visitors as the filming location for the BBC’s Death in Paradise. If you are lucky enough to be on island during filming, you may even catch a glimpse of some of the series’ stars.

Due to the different characteristics of the two islands that make up Guadeloupe, we would highly recommend a twin centre holiday allowing you to contrast the picturesque fishing villages of Grande-Terre with the natural beauty of Basse-Terre.
