Lighthouse, Vieux-Fort, Guadeloupe Islands
You have heard about Guadeloupe and you have succumbed to the temptation to visit this island.
Unfortunately, you only have few days off to enjoy the wonders of the island.
Even if you stay 5 days, 4 days or even 3 days, Guadeloupe islands will charm you, and I’m pretty sure that you will come back.
I will not hide the fact than 3, 4 or 5 days is really a short time for a trip in Guadeloupe islands, so let me help you enjoying this short stay at best.
Below some advices to have a short but INTENSE trip.
This morning, I rediscovered the pleasure of enjoying Bois-Jolan beach with my daughter. My daughter is 3 years old, and she really loves when we go to this beach. Me too, when I was a kid, I spent some much time playing in the sand with my sisters and my cousines. We loved doing sand castles, catching small crabs, making water battles. We didn’t see the time going….
If you have kids, offer them this wonderful experience. They will love it! Guadeloupe islands is really a perfect place to have holidays.
This morning in my kitchen, you would have heard the whistling of my pressure cooker and the crackling of a frying. For good reason, I enjoyed a fried fish accompanied by rice and lentils. A typical and delicious meal here, in Guadeloupe islands.
For someone like me, who loves Guadeloupe islands and is eager to share the beauties of her paradise with travelers, how can I say that “I DON’T have a Top 10 list in Guadeloupe islands” ?
Let me explain! 😉
People usually ask me: “What are the 10 best things to do in Guadeloupe islands?” , “Can you advise the must-see and the must-do? “
Yippee!! A new person interested by Guadeloupe!!! I’m always glad to help people discovering my island but I feel a little bit uncomfortable for answering this kind of questions…
I was looking for a great video clip about Guadeloupe islands to share with you guys.
My wish was to make you experience Music, in Guadeloupe, through pictures.
I remember I was on YouTube when my husband arrived and told me that I absolutely had to look at the video clip PAPYON of Swé ! I really enjoyed it and I thought that it would be really interesting to meet Swé and to get an overview of Guadeloupe islands through her eyes.
Swé is one of the best new generation singers in Guadeloupe. She is a great representation of guadeloupean music because she sings : Dance-hall, Hip-hop, Reggae, Zouk and Soul ! Young people say : Swé gets “the flow” !
Don’t worry if you don’t know what I’m talking about. I will write a post on our Music in Guadeloupe Islands !
I would like to thanks Swé for the interview because she is really involved in the promotion of Guadeloupe islands and her bursts of laughter are just awesome !

It’s a major part of the DNA of our islands, Guadeloupe without its Carnival time will not be Guadeloupe anymore .
People are immersed in carnival since their childhood! When I was a child, preparing the parade of the school, was a key moment of the year. My eyes sparkled from the choice of our costume until the parade in the street in front of the proud eyes of my mother.
Today, I would like to share ideas for one day in the extreme east part of Guadeloupe islands: Pointe des Chateaux.
This area in Guadeloupe is for lovers of big place where nature is wild and preserved from human hands. Here the nature expresses itself by the beauty of its wild sea, its vertiginous cliffs, its gorgeous panoramas and its rich undersea life.
