Gorgeous Guadeloupe is a French overseas region in the Caribbean which comprises an archipelago of six inhabited islands and several uninhabited islands and islets. The inhabited islands are the two Isles des Saintes, La Desirade, Marie-Galante, Basse-Terre and Grande-Terre, the biggest city is Les Abymes, and the commercial centre is Pointe-a-Pitre, which is also home to Guadeloupe’s main airport. Guadeloupe is a member of the European Union and French and Antillean Creole are the main languages. The most southerly of the Leeward Islands, this sparkling jewel in the crystalline Caribbean boasts huge mountains, beautiful beaches, amazing diving areas and lip-smacking cuisine, as well as a laid-back culture that’s truly hypnotic.

Guide to Guadeloupe
Guadeloupe’s islands were first inhabited in around 3000BC by the Arawak indigenous Americans, but by 1400 AD the Kalina-Carib peoples were dominant. The first European to see Guadeloupe was Christopher Columbus in 1493, some Spanish settlers lived there in the 16th century (although Spain’s attempts to capture the islands were repelled by the natives) and France assumed control in 1635. Over the next few centuries it was captured by Britain a few times, and once ceded to Sweden, but France ultimately retained control. Today it attracts eco tourists, foodies, families, beach lovers, mountain hikers and more.
Things to do in Guadeloupe

Meanwhile, history and culture buffs will love Pointe-a-Pitre, with its lovely French colonial buildings and modern Memorial ACTe museum.
