Each of the 8 archipelago's islands has its own features, but the common elements are usually between the cystal clear water, white beaches and luxuriant nature that embrace the surface. For trekking and adventure lovers, we suggest to organise an excursion to the Guadaloupa National Reservation (UNESCO site), covering the routes immersed in the tropical forest, a dive into the waterfalls and finally the climbing in the vulcano. For sea lovers, we suggest a snorkeling tour discovering the Coral Reefs that surround the archipelago, in particular che marine Reservations, where it is possible to admire the underwater beauty from a local boat. Beaches and Promontory are devoted to the ones who prefer relax, enyoing the burning sun, the crystal clear water and some little walks around Guadaloupa.
