Welcome to Guadeloupe
This eastern Caribbean island is a French overseas department and is located south-east of Puerto Rico.
The archipelago’s two main islands Basse Terre, and Grande Terre are in the shape of a Butterfly which gives it its nickname of the ‘Butterfly Island’. The two islands are connected by bridges which span over a mangrove swamp.
Basse Terre features verdant jungles and presided over by a tall volcano, while the island of Grande Terre is mostly flat with numerous idyllic beaches and vibrant small towns.
