One day in Guadeloup

Guadeloupe consists of two islands Basse Terre from volcanic origin and Grand Terre made of limestone.
I took some rum with me, couldn’t leave the Caribbean without rum. Guadeloup makes the rum out of sugar cane, that grows on the island, instead of imported sugar cane molasses.

I decided to visit Grand Terre:

Cemetery Morne-a-l'Eau is a world heritage site


Viewpoint de la Grande Vigie is the northernmost point of Guadeloup


Port d'enfer (Gate of Hell)


Pointe des Chateaux is the easternmost point of Guadeloup


There are also some beaches like the Anse de Souffleur

Basse Terre includes the following highlights

Chutes du Carbet

Three Waterfalls, one (20 m high) can be reached in a 45 Minutes hike, though I read that there are often landslides, so be careful and find out, if you can do the hike upfront. Afterwards you can go back to your car and drive 1,5 km and then walk 20 Minutes to the second waterfall (110 m high). The highest waterfall can be reached in a two hour hike. If you want to reach the summit, you should reach it in 3 h.

Cascade aux Ecrevisses

a little jungle waterfall that you can reach in 5 minutes.
