Guadeloupe (Pointe-à-Pitre) in detail

Guadeloupe is part of the Lesser Antilles about 200 miles north of its sister island of Martinique. It is made up of two islands separated by a narrow seawater channel known as the Riviere Salee. Grand Terre is the eastern island with typical Antillian landscapes of rolling hills and sugar plantations while Basse Terre has a rugged mountainous terrain dominated by La Soufriere volcano and beautiful sandy beaches. 

A stream of boiling water gushes from the top of the 4,800-foot mountain, reminding you that this volcano is not dormant, but very much alive. Further downstream you can swim in the beautiful triple falls of Chute de Carbet. Butterfly-shaped Guadeloupe, discovered by Columbus during his second voyage spans only 720 square milesand has a population of 386,600. Beaches wash the sides of volcanoes, flat expanses of sugar cane grow alongside winding mangrove swamps, international hotels contrast with wooden huts perched on four stones and major highways cross paths leading over the mountains amidst giant ferns.
