The islands have lovely white sand beaches but also a wildlife-infested rainforest and the highest waterfall in the Caribbean. It boasts plenty of restaurants, bars and discos, with displays of local dancing and music. In Grande Terre is Pointe-a-Pitre, the commercial centre of Guadeloupe, and is near both the airport and shipping port. It is a quite compact and functional city, flat and dry with a lot of beaches, some of them very touristic. Basse-Terre is the administrative capital of Guadeloupe. It is green and has lush vegetation and is also mountainous with a sulphuric volcano. There are some very pretty and authentic old buildings of the colonial period in the city. With your rental car you can explore all the incredible diversity of Guadeloupe at your leisure.
