When you go through a difficult time, nothing like a good dose of sun and heavenly beaches to smile again. That’s why I spent a few days in Guadeloupe, the island where I grew up in the Caribbean.
Guadeloupe was fortunate not to be devastated by the hurricanes that ravaged the Caribbean this summer because it is further south.
In 5 days, I did not have time to do everything I would have liked to do, but I saw my favourite places:
1. Pointe des Chateaux
The Pointe des Chateaux is a beautiful place, which represents the end of Guadeloupe. It belongs to the city of Saint François. There are impressive cliffs and you can see the little island of Désirade in the distance.
2. Caravelle Beach
The Caravelle Beach is one of my favourite beaches in Guadeloupe. It is located in Sainte-Anne and belongs to Club Med, a French “vacation village”.
3. Carbet Falls
Lost in the tropical rainforest, the Carbet Falls are a series of 3 cold waterfalls surrounded by hot springs. A nice walk to get there, it’s a very beautiful place!
Guadeloupe is only 4h30 by plane, and the rates are very attractive at certain times of the year thanks to the Norwegian company.
I hope I made you want to go there one day… And if you need any advice for your trip, do not hesitate to ask me. It will be my pleasure to help you 🙂
