Can you almost feel the tropical breeze? Book Guadeloupe holidays through Wotif today and set sail for paradise tomorrow. Things to do in Guadeloupe
Yes, Guadeloupe is an archipelago, but there’s two main islands that you’ve absolutely got to explore: Basse-Terre in the west, and Grande-Terre in the east. Basse-Terre is known for its beaches, high peaks and world-class diving. Explorer Jacques Cousteau himself declared Pigeon Island, located near Basse-Terre, one of the best diving sites in the world. But wait: Your Guadeloupe holiday package isn’t complete without a trip to Guadeloupe National Park, with its jungles, secluded waterfalls and a real fire-breathing volcano. It was even designated a World Biosphere Reserve by UNESCO—probably a bit more than you can say for your garden back home!
Loving the natural beauty of Basse-Terre but want to check out Grande-Terre too? Of course you do! Grab one of Wotif’s Guadeloupe car hire deals and quickly cross one of the bridges between the two islands. Visit La Pointe des Chateaux, where you can walk along a path from the village to an overlook that will let you gaze out at stunning rock formations created over the course of millions of years. Shopping, Dining & Nightlife
In Pointe-a-Pitre, the largest city in Guadeloupe, you will find colourful outdoor markets that sell spices, clothing, perfumes and the catch of the day fresh off local fishing boats. There is a large shopping centre, but you can also bargain with local vendors to get great deals on artwork, textiles and souvenirs. Fortunately our Guadeloupe packages will leave you with plenty of money left over to spend on gifts!
This country’s ties to France means a French culinary presence mixed with Caribbean soul food—in other words, come ready to eat. You will also see Creole cuisine, fresh seafood, root vegetables and other indigenous ingredients on your plate. There's also many beachside restaurants where you can enjoy the sand between your toes while you pick at crab and conch and sip a frosty beverage.
During your holidays in Guadeloupe, set aside at least one evening to see what the nightlife has on offer. What’s your pleasure? Dance outside at a beach bar along the sea, or inside at a DJ-centred club. You can also opt to visit a casino to roll the dice once or twice—don’t tempt Lady Luck too much. What's Next?
