Guadeloupe: French for paradise

Packages to Guadeloupe will not be offered during the 2022-2023 winter season.

Guadeloupe is a butterfly shaped island halfway between Cuba and Venezuela. Its two ‘wings’ offer completely different kinds of tourism: the eastern Grande-Terre is more of a beach-lover’s paradise, while the western Basse-Terre is full of hiking, volcanoes and adventure for everyone.

Discover Guadeloupe

Most of the hotels on Guadeloupe’s Grand Terre are located on or very close to one of its magnificent beaches. Gosier Beach is definitely the most popular and worth a visit, particularly to see how the locals wisely protected it from erosion with well-built stone jetties. But its popularity also makes it busy, so if it’s a quieter day in the sun you’re after, check outCreole Beach—but bring a lot of sunblock as there’s little to no shade.
Guadeloupe has a rich history worth exploring. Start at Musée St. John Perse, a 19th-century colonial building that gives you a look at a typical Creole home. You’ll also find a fascinating exhibit dedicated to Nobel laureate poet and native son Alexis Leger. For more adventurous types, a trip to Basse Terre’s Parc Naturel de Guadeloupe is well worth it. It’s 290 km of trails through rainforest passes by waterfalls and hot springs to rest up at during your hike. Your hotel’s concierge should be able to point you towards a hiking tour that suits your level of endurance, but make sure that whichever one you choose takes you to La Grande Soufrière Volcano—a 1,450+ metre monster you can climb or admire from one of the many lookout points nearby.
Like the French, Guadeloupians take their cuisine seriously, and you can taste it in anything you eat. Don't leave without trying Ti-Nain Morue, a dried cod dish served with green plantains and spices. And to satisfy your sweet tooth, save room for Tourment d’Amour, a pastry available in a variety of flavours, including banana, coconut, pineapple, and other tropical fruits.

Guadeloupe the Transat Way

In addition to our much-beloved all-inclusive packages to sun-soaked wonderlands, we also offer:

Good to know

Presence of Sargassum in Mexico and the Caribbean
Depending on the weather conditions, winds and tides may bring large quantities of Sargassum to shore. Since seaweed moves with the ocean currents, quantities may vary by place and day. Transat would like to inform its clients that this natural phenomenon beyond its control affects several parts of Mexico and the Caribbean. Although the presence of this brown seaweed is greater than usual, our hotel partners are making every effort to clean the beaches when necessary.

We offer holiday collections perfectly suited to the budgets and desires of couples, families and solo travellers.
