Caribbean Islands : Discovering the Guadeloupe Islands!
Carribean Island. When you think about the Carribean Islands, you probably imagine green and lush islands, white and golden sand shores, palm trees loaded with coconuts, crystal sea… And that’s exactly what you’ll find on the Guadeloupe Islands. No, I’m sorry, I mean you’ll find more than that, much more… it’s so weird that to go there, you don’t need a passport or exchanging currency! (These islands are part of the overseas land of France).
Guadeloupe Archipelago is located just in the middle of the Carribbean and is composed of 5 islands: Basse-Terre, Grande-Terre, La Désirade, Les Saintes, Marie-Galante.
I spent 8 amazing days on these islands, accompanied by Ruddy Manne, a wonderful person and our excellent guide and driver for the whole week. A trip through the most beautiful bays in the world, dolphins, sea turtles, catamarans, kayaks, horses, history, aromas of spices, of coffee and cocoa…
After a flight Florence – Paris, Paris – Pointe-à-Pitre, on an Air France plane, we headed immediately towards Saint François on Grande-Terre Island, to our first hotel La Cocoteraie, welcomed by the typical aroma of tropical islands: sea, flowers and fruit… just extraordinary!
Caribbean Islands – The Guadeloupe Islands. Let me introduce you Petite – Terre!
We started our adventure, discovering the Guadeloupe Islands with an entire day on a catamaran with Paradoxe Croisieres (setting sail from Saint François). After 2 hours of sailing into the crystal blue of the ocean, complete with an encounter with dolphins (so exciting!) we arrived on the island of Petite-Terre, a real paradise on earth, protected and safeguarded. There, we had a close encounter with iguanas, bossy inhabitants of the island, also populated by nesting birds, sharks, dolphins and sea turtles. One tropical fruit at the time, Giova and I went on exploring the island, so wild and pure, a delight for the eye and the soul. (Have you noticed the “tiny”seashells?). Enjoy the photos!
