Would you like to enjoy the most beautiful days of the year in a vacation rental or apartment under palm trees? Then Guadeloupe is the ideal destination. You'll find what you're looking for when you look for a holiday home, especially on the snow-white coasts, where you'll find picturesque beaches not far from Baillif, Deshaies and Saint-Claude on the island of Basse-Terre. Alternatively, you can move into an apartment in the lively capital Basse-Terre, where you can enjoy the Caribbean flair and ice-cold Pina Colada in the numerous bars.

Holidays in Guadeloupe
Travelers and Activities
Hardly any other Caribbean island has such different dream beaches as Guadeloupe. No matter if the mysterious black bay of Saint-Sauveur, the light pink beach of Cluny or the snow white beach of Raisins Clairs. Every square centimetre of the island is perfect for bathing holidaymakers. After all, the crystal clear water not only invites you to swim, but also offers ideal conditions for windsurfing and kitesurfing, especially between October and May. Alternatively, you can explore the fascinating underwater world and enjoy a colourful panorama in the up to 28 degrees Celsius warm water thanks to a visibility of up to 30 metres. A secret tip are the coral reefs around the Pigeon Islands, where colorful parrotfish and majestic stingrays as well as giant humpback whales make their way from time to time.
Things to know
Due to the tropical climate near the equator and the constant number of sunny hours throughout the year, the air temperatures from January to December range between 28 and 31 degrees Celsius. Since the water temperatures never fall below 25 degrees Celsius, a bathing holiday is possible at any time. Due to the relatively frequent storms between June and October, the best time to travel is between November and May.
Guadeloupe is a French overseas territory and therefore part of the European Union.
Top 3 travel tips
The typical cuisine of Guadeloupe is a real experience. After all, French, Creole and all kinds of African influences meet here. Among the dishes you should try are the herring flambéed with rum (Harengs Fumés a la Créole), the coconut cream soup (Potage à la créme de coco) and the spicy crab meat with plantains (Crabes aux ti bananes vertes).2. Undertake a volcano hike
A hike to the 1,467-metre-high summit of the volcano La Soufrière, which is still active today, provides very special natural impressions. Follow the path through the evergreen rainforest up to the crater rim and take a look at the smoking vent, which is 400 metres wide.3. Discover legendary rock caves
According to legend, a witch opened the gate to the underworld in the legendary rock caves "Trou Madame Coco". If you're looking for a natural spectacle that is as impressive as it is scary, you can visit the caves at Port D'Enfer, milled into the rock by the waves of the Atlantic Ocean.
