ISLANDS OF GUADELOUPE: Guadeloupe, Basse Terre and Grande Terre
Guadeloupe, 1 433 km2, 335.000 inhabitants, is made
up of two islands. Basse-Terre called, “The island of beautiful
water,” by the ancient Caribbean tribe Karukera, and Grande-Terre.
Fundamentally different from one another, the first mountainous and
volcanic, rich with forests, rivers and waterfalls; the second,
stretches out along a strip of calcium and coral deposits, is
practically flat apart from a small region called, “Grands Fonds,”
which is formed by a series of gulleys and sheer hills. Grande Terre
and Basse Terre are connected to one another by a bridge that
crosses the Riviere Salée, a sea passage of 3 km which divides the
derived its name from the mariner’s tradition of naming
their landings according to the winds. Basse-Terre
translated wronghly into, “Low ground,” was downwind at
the time. Locations up wind were called capesterre. An
irony of it's name is that Terre-Basse, is the region
which hosts the volcano La Soufrière, a full 1467 metres
high, and an elevated area of approximately 850 kmq, a
region almost completely covered by forest.
The volcano La Soufrière with its forest covered peaks,
dominates the island: a cathedral of green which
descends to the sea. The north east coast stretches into
cultivated hills, whilst the forests on the south west
coast stretch to the sea’s edge.
The central, volcanic, mountainous region runs from
south to north. Stretching from the the volcano La
Soufrière to the crest of Le Mamelles, which make up
part of the national park of Guadeloupe: 17.300 hectares
of rain forest . The park, one of the most beautiful in
the Antilles, hosts more than 3 000 species of plants, a
hundred of which are varieties of orchids. The numerous
footpaths throughout the forest, the volcano and the
beautiful waterfalls all make Guadeloupe a true paradise
for those who love the outdoors, trekking and canyoning.

natural beauty of the island, Basse-Terre is also
interesting for its historical points and aspects. An
important patrimony of the island, which includes
archaeological finds in Trois Rivière and Plessis,
testimony to the pre Colombian civilisation of
Guadeloupe, as well as Fort Delgres, built in 1650 to
defend Guadeloupe from the English, the Hindu temple of
Changy, the largest on the island, witness to the
islands important Indian community. There are numerous
plantations from the colonial period which are open to
Route de la Traversée
A self drive tour of about 35 km
which is true to its French name which means, “The cross
over road.”. From coast to coast, the road begins after
Vernou (D23), leading up through the forests to climb Le
Mamelles (615 m) before descending towards Point Noir.
This area is especially beautiful during the periods
when flamboyants are in bloom, from April to the end of
Numerous points of natural beauty and
interest can be found throughout the national park of
Guadeloupe: the falls aux ecrevisses, easily reachable
on foot, the Maison de la Foret, has numerous
educational information boards on the flora and fauna of
the region. The area is also a starting point for many a
forest trail. Not far from the Maison de la Foret the
creek at Bras-David is an ideal location to take a dip
and freshen up after a few hours driving. A needed rest
before scaling up the west coast, which will take you up
to Morne à Louis, where you can enjoy the view down over
Basse Terre. Merely 1 km after Morne à Louis, in the
direction of Pointe à Pitre, you will get to the Parc
des Mamelles. A forestall area offering several trails,
all of which will help you discover Guadeloupe’s natural
beauty, her flowers, animals and insects.
Grande-Terre, much smaller than Basse
Terre, was mistakenly named so by the early settlers, to
whom this seemed the larger island. Once, almost
completely dedicated to the cultivation of sugar cane,
is now home to the principal tourist industries, thanks
to its white sandy beaches and dry climate.
Gosier, where the largest proportion
of the islands’ hotels are located, Sainte Anne, a small
borough famous for its beaches, and Saint François, one
of the most important tourism hubs in Guadeloupe,
represent the areas most developed touristic areas.
Tourists are drawn by the beaches and ideal climate.
The north of Grande Terre offers splendid views and
beaches privy to mass tourism, which remains
concentrated along the south coast. Travelling across
the countryside dotted with ruined wind mills you will
reach the north coast. The coastline runs from a height
of 84 metres at Pointe Vigie, falling to the Atlantic
Ocean. Port d’Enfer, at 25 km. from Le Moule, is another
incredible landscape, a tongue of ocean reaches inland
to create a lagoon with a coastline of rocks and grass.
You could be forgiven for believing that Pointe à Pitre,
the most developed city in Guadeloupe and which sustains
the economic activity of the region is the capital of
|The beaches of Grande
The most reknowned beaches are to the
south of Grande-Terre, but those to the north are
perhaps the most beautiful, less visited and some still
Between Port-Louis (Plage du
Souffleur) and Pointe de la Grande Vigie there are
several beaches of note: l’Anse du Souffleur a few km
from Port-Louis, (Don’t stop at the beach where the pay
for park facilities are located, continue by car, passed
the coastal cemetery on the coast, here the beaches are
more natural and less busy); The Anse Laborde at 1,5 km.
to the north of Pointe Vigie, has no shade. At the exit
from the borough of Anse Bertrand to the south , the
beach la Chapelle with its palms just a few metres from
the water’s edge is the most frequented.
The coast of La Moule is reknowned amongst the
international surfing community international level.
Continuing south you will get to Pointe des Chateaux a
few more bends and you’ll find the long beaches of
Grande Anse des Salines, ideal for bathing. To be
mentioned are Anse à la Gourde, Anse a l’Eau e l’Anse
Tartare, exceptional beaches that were popular with the
naturalists in the 70’s due to the location sheltered
from the ocean’s waves, truly beautiful beaches.

|Diving in Guadeloupe
are an export diver or are simply interested in finding
out more about this sport, Guadeloupe offers you some
beautiful sites that are each unique. Dive sites range
from the open ocean off the coast of Grande-Terre to the
tranquil waters of the Caribbean in Basse-Terre. All
sites are characterised by spectacular sea beds, rich
with life and offer experiences that are beyond special.
Guadeloupe hosts numerous dive clubs, all instructors
are fully qualified professionals and able to issue
both, the French (FFESSM or ANMP) or American (PADI),
highest part of the Antilles, at 1 467 m above sea level
is also probably the wettest part, with almost 10m of
water a year! It is quiet difficult to photograph the
peak of Soufrière, which is shrouded in cloud and mist.
The volcano is active but perhaps one of the most
passive in the world, no craters or lava flows. The
landscape is near luna with bizarre rock formations ,
gas expelling chasms and faults all encased by a rich
savanna, filled with ferns, wild mountain bananas, moss,
lichen and vine. The numerous faults which wheeze
sulphuric vapor and gas, which all bear witness to the
activity of the “vieille dame”, as she is affectionately
known by the locals .The views from La Soufriere are
truly exceptional, in good weather it is possible to see
Martinique and Dominica. It will take you about 2-3
hours to reach the the peak of the volcano travelling on
the Chemin de Dames and get back to the parking. To
enjoy La Soufrière completely you should plan to be
there for 3-4 hours.
La Soufrière is not only a volcano. Additionally,
accessible from the other side of the Soufriere you can
get to Chutse du Carbet. Another nice trip is to La
Citerne, an ancient crater with a lake at the bottom.
For the more experienced Le Traces visited by many, is
very challenging, due to the often muddy terrain.
|Rivers, waterfalls and
Les Chutes du Carbet
On the east slopes of
Soufrière, at 1300 meters altitude, is the Grand River
Carbet, who with her three falls form the highest
waterfalls of the Lesser Antilles. The most easily
accessible and best known is the second, which is 110
meters in height. The trail is well signposted and is
not more than half an hour walk from the park.
Whilst visiting the area, take time to take in the
forest; Giant leafed Philodendrons ferns reaching up to
to 15 meters, trees of 30-40 meters in height, including
white & chestnut gum trees. The first cascade of 120
meters is even more exceptional, but not easily
accessible for those who are not well trained (4 hours
round trip), the trails are often unstable, and when it
rains (frequent) are dangerous. The ground is frangible
and the streams quickly break their banks, becoming
dangerous to cross.
The third waterfall is a mere 20 meters high, but is
also less crowded. Easily reachable with a path
beginning at Petit-Marquisat, (1 hour ride,), and is the
only one where you can bathing is permitted. For safety
reasons after the earthquake of 2004 is not possible to
get to the foot of the other two waterfalls.
For mother nature lovers, Trace du Grand Etang is a
beautiful hike, a journey of about an hour you will
discover this great lake. 20 hectares of volcanic
origin, which is home to many species of birds, fish and
crustaceans but unfortunately also to colonies of
mosquitoes (attention leeches in the water!)
After Capesterre go southbound towards Saint.Sauveur.
When you get there turn right and continue for about 9
km until you get to the parking at Bains Jaunes, then
turn into the path called Pas du Roy
For the third waterfall, after Capesterre turn right
onto the D3 towards Routhiers and head south. Pass the
village to reach the end of the road and the waterfall.
The waterfalls of the river Moreau
At a hundred meters in height, these are
just as beautiful as those of Carbet and are surrounded
by thick green forests. After about 2 km from the traces
in the forest, the trail forks. Take the right fork to
get to the waterfall of Ravine Mangle. Fork to the left
and you will get to the spectacular waterfall of Racoon
Ravine. Unfortunately, after the earthquake of 2004
which caused major landslides the traces is no longer
viable. Inquire at the office ONF, tel. 0596 992899 if
the route has been restored. Rather than attempting a
challenging journey muddy ground and tumultuous rivers.
At Douville, 10 km north of Goyave take the forest road
for about 10 km to get to the car park, from there go on
foot through in the forest. The journey takes about 5
hours there and back.
|The Cul-de-sac Marine
La Réserve Grand Cul-de-sac Marin, founded in 1987,
protects 2115 hectares of sea, 1622 hectares of mangrove
forest along the coast and the large lagoon that
separates Grand Terre from Basse Terre. An exceptional
site for its ecosystem, not just in renowned in
Guadeloupe, but also in all the Caribbean. The area is
wonderful to visit. There are several uninhabited
islands in the lagoon, protected by a coral reef of more
than 20 km and their mangrove forests. The whole area is
strictly regulated, organized tourist activities are
prohibited. Ilets within the reserve, considered to be
beautiful equal to the Maldives, all have different
names Fajou Christophe de la Biche, Mangue Laurette and
ilet à de Carénage.
The ilet Caret, much further from the coast and out of
the reserve, is a destination for many excursions and
trips. Try to get there before the crowds, after 1600 to
truly enjoy this little paradise. A good starting point
from which to explore the reserve of Grand Cul-de-sac
Marin is Sainte-Rose, where you can get some good offers

council of Abymes and Gosier, form an urban area of some
100,000 inhabitants, which gives you no impression of
being on a Caribbean island. The highway traffic lead

beautiful Creole house of 1887 in rue Peynier.
The city museum at Saint-John Perse in rue Noziéres is
located in a most beautiful colonial dwelling at Pointe
à Pitre, built by the famous French architect Gustave
Eiffel in 1870. The museum is dedicated to the poet and
is a reconstruction of a typical home in the late 1800s.
The two museums are located in the centre of the old
quarter of the port, which lends itself to a stroll
among the food and retail shops. The colourful market on
the sea front at Place de la Victoria, is surrounded by
palm trees and is that of Sainte Antoine. It lies at the
corner of rue Peynier and rue Frebault, one of the most
authentic parts of Pointe à Pitre. The church of
Saint-Pierre et Saint-Paul with its pavement flower
market offers a pleasant view of life in the Antilles.
Despite the difficulties of traffic and parking may want
to visit Pointe à Pitre in the hectic, yet more genuine
morning, than during the afternoon which is more sleepy.
|The ilet of Gosier
In front of the beach in Gosier,
one of the major tourist centres of Guadeloupe with the
largest concentration of hotels and nightclubs which
