French Guadeloupe is an island in the Antilles which, with other small islets, is an overseas region we can visit on our cruise. Rich in marine life, it has beautiful seabeds and is populated by coral reefs.
Guadeloupe is the largest island of the Lesser Antilles, actually formed by two sister islands separated by a strait called Rivière Salée, crossed by three road bridges. The island is full of sweet and juicy tropical fruit and of flowers such as orchids, bougainvillea and hibiscus. Despite its name Grande-Terre, this island is the smallest and has the most beautiful beaches found on our cruise to Guadeloupe. For lovers of surfing, the perfect destination is the beach of La Moule. The second Island, Basse-Terre, is mountainous, with the soaring volcano of La Soufrière. We can go hiking surrounded by the waterfalls and colourful flowers of the tropical forest in National Park of Guadeloupe.
