What Major Cities Are Near Guadeloupe Port?

Located southeast of Puerto Rico, Guadeloupe is formed by several islands. So, rather than pointing out cities or towns, locals refer to the names of islands as the major landmarks to guide tourists. The sole island that is uninhabited is the Petite Terre and is off limits. The Marie Galante is the second biggest island after Guadeloupe, and it offers great outdoor activities. The Grande Terre on the northeast side offers sandy beaches, which are very popular among locals and tourists. The Basse Terre is the lushest island of the chain and offers great hiking trails around volcanoes. Les Saintes (made of Terre de Haut and Terre de Bas) has the most beautiful bays. Last but not least, Saint Barthelemy is the island for the very rich, and Saint Maarten is the island that hosts both French and Dutch cultures.
