The coast, villages and countryside of the Eastern Algarve and then explore the treasures of this most westerly corner of Europe.
As the filming location for the popular BBC drama series Death in Paradise, the scenery in Guadeloupe truly is to die for. The blissful sandy beaches and vibrant sea life found here make this beautiful small group of islands an excellent spot for both relaxing breaks and memorable walking holidays in Guadeloupe.
Located in the Southern Caribbean Sea, Guadeloupe is a small island group with a population of just under 400,000. It’s comprised of six islands, the main two of which (Basse-Terre and Grande-Terre) are separated only by the Rivière Salée.
While perhaps lesser known than neighbouring islands such as Antigua, Montserrat and Dominica, Guadeloupe is recognised for its sugarcane fields and beautiful beaches, and on our walking holidays, you’ll get to explore these very beaches and meandering coastal trails. Take the time to stroll through the scenic locations used in the Death in Paradise TV show, before embarking on a short glass-bottomed boat tour, among many other relaxing and inspiring activities.
Guadeloupe was originally called Karukera, which translates to ‘island of beautiful waters’, so you’ll have plenty to look out for when gazing down at the sea through the boat’s glass base. The waters surrounding Guadeloupe are home to colourful coral reefs and a wealth of stunning sea-life, including turtles, starfish, seahorses and multi-coloured fish, all of which ensure Guadeloupe lives up to its former name.
One of the best ways to explore this beautiful Caribbean island is by foot, so you can soak up the stunning vistas and truly immerse yourself in the culture and cuisine. You will be joined by one of our friendly leaders who will be with you every step of the way, showing you down every trail and even giving you the best local restaurant recommendations on the island.
