Guadeloupe is part of the Leeward Islands and stands out because of its butterfly shape. The eastern wing, Grand-Terre, features Pointe-à-Pitre, the island’s biggest city and center of tourism. The western wing, called Basse-Terre, is less developed and dominated by an impressive national park. A narrow channel called the Salt River separates the two halves of the island.
Nearby are Marie Galante, which offers fantastic snorkeling, and the Gosier islet and its large coral reef – we make sure you will visit both on your GaySail Guadeloupe sailing cruise. For anchorages, we will head to Les Saintes and take a stroll around Fort Napoleon on Terre-de-Haut. We will make a great combination with the Island of Dominica and make a tour through the rainforest and waterfalls and stay overnight in Portsmouth.
