About Guadeloupe

Despite a complex history, the islands have remained under French control and are now a popular tourist resort. For those searching for rest and relaxation, the islands are a dream to visit.

Guadeloupe has a tropical climate with hot temperatures and humidity. The best time to visit the islands is December to May, when the weather is pleasant and the temperatures are high. August and September is when hurricane season occurs, so you might want to consider avoiding this period. 

What to do in Guadeloupe

The islands have a range of experiences for tourists to enjoy. Baie de Pompierre is a horseshoe shaped beach boasting a coral reef and stunning golden sands. Sunbathe, enjoy a picnic in one of the picturesque wooded areas or go on a hike—whatever you choose, there is plenty to do here.

If you’re looking to get active, take a trip to La Soufriere. Taking almost two hours to the summit, this adventure is ideal for those who relish a challenge. Starting on a gravel bed and continuing up a mountain of shrubs and ferns, you’ll be greeted with some delightful scenery as you reach the top.

The cuisine in Guadeloupe is a treat for your taste buds. La Touna offers stunning seafood on the seafront with a diverse menu. It’s essential to book ahead as it does get busy, especially at weekends. Alternatively, head to La Playa for lobster, crab and beef. This cute restaurant is opposite from Petite Anse Beach.
