Basse-Terre, the western wing of the butterfly, is home to a diverse national park, dominated by La Soufrière volcano. Get your walking boots on and explore the trails that criss-cross the park or get acquainted with Caribbean aquatic life at the Jacques Cousteau Underwater Reserve. Or simply enjoy the breathtaking scenery from the shade of a palm tree.
Grande-Terre, the eastern wing of the island, has some amazing beaches where you can indulge in any number of activities like windsurfing, waterskiing or simply relaxing with a slug of the much-loved local rum. The Caribbean thump of reggae continues long into the night so you can get hot and sticky in the warm evening air. If you ever need a change of paradisiacal scenery, neighbouring islands Montserrat, Dominica, Martinique and Antigua offer even more white sand, blue skies and exotic fauna.
A French-language experience like no other!
