GUADELOUPE
Is one of our favorite islands to visit while on our bareboat charters, Guadeloupe is actually made up of two islands connected by a bridge over the Rivière Salée. To the east lies Grande-Terre, known for its white sand beaches, rolling hills, cane fields and resort areas. The island’s economic capital, Pointe-à-Pitre, which the finish of the single handed sailing race Route du Rhum is located on Grand-Terre. To the west lies Basse-Terre, the larger of the two islands. Basse-Terre has a very different topography with its renowned rain forest, waterfalls, mountains and world-class diving and friendly West Indian hospitality and delicious cuisine. Don't miss Petit-Terre on as you make your way east along the shore of Guadeloupe
for Antigua. Petit Terre is a wonderful island to spend a few days snorkeling and taking photos of the many and only native inhabitants "Iguanas".

 

    ILES DES SAINTES
    Justy south of Guadeloupe and a best place to clear into the French islands these exotic tropical jewels of eight little islands, only two are inhabited, and picturesque Terre-de-Haut is the one travelers visit first. In addition to superb beaches, gorgeous bays, exceptional snorkeling and fascinating historical sites, this romantic island offers a charming village with Customs, excellent restaurants, Unique shopping and art galleries. The other populated island, peaceful Terre-de-Bas, is only a few minutes by boat from Terre-de-Haut and is definitely worth a visit.
