5 islands, 1 trip: pick 1, 2 or more for a unique travel experience

We shall not speak about Guadeloupe but the Guadeloupe archipelago as Guadeloupe is made up of 5 distinctive islands. The main ones are: Basse-Terre, Grande -Terre, Marie-Galante, les Saintes and la Désirade (two small additional islands are also very famous: Petite Terre and Grand Cul de Sac Marin). Each island has its own assets and, if you have enough time, you should definitely consider making a tour of the 5 islands. In case you are only staying 7-10 days, pick two, for example Basse-Terre and Grande-Terre or Basse-Terre and les Saintes… Ask your local adviser for customized recommendations!
