Grande Terre

Grande-Terre sits on a vast limestone plateau bordered with pristine beaches, turquoise lagoons and featuring unforgettable scenery. The soil being ideal for the growing of sugar cane, the north of the island is practically covered in plantations. Many restaurants pride themselves on serving traditional Créole cuisine, while the numerous night clubs are famous for their hot Caribbean nights.

  • La Basilique Saint-Pierre et Saint-Paul—the Basilica in Pointe-à-Pitre
  • Le Fort Fleur d’Épée—a fortress perched above the town of Le Gosier
  • The Pointe-à-Pitre’s Schoelcher museum in honour of the man behind the movement to abolish slavery
