From the sky, Guadeloupe looks like a beautiful green butterfly floating on the blue waters, two wings for two very different islands considering their characteristics, Basse Terre, mountainous and luxurious, and Grande Terre, flat and dry. Situated 1900 miles from NYC (USA), Guadeloupe is the biggest island of the Petites Antilles.
Separated from its big sister by the River Salée, in the east, you'll find Grande Terre. It belongs to a mountainous chain which is more ancient and distinct than the one in Basse Terre. It is constituted of a plain with mangroves in the west, by an anarchic succession of hillsides in the south-west, called the grands fonds, by a dry plateau in the north, surrounded by wild and ripped coasts in the east, and a plateau in the south, bordered by the coral barrier. Its relief may be great but Grande Terre was nonetheless less accessible and less populated for a long time. Today, its beaches and its low rainfall make it a veritable El Dorado for tourists in search of postcard scenery.
Both through the quality of its water and coast and the splendor of its rivers and cascades, Guadeloupe fully deserves its name of "island with gorgeous waters". From the South Riviera of Grande Terre to the luxurious cathedrals of the tropical forest, Guadeloupe offers two antagonistic faces for the greatest enjoyment of its visitors.
