Guadeloupe, La Desirade Island

On your Guadeloupe Boat-Charter, La Desirade Island should be on the itinerary. It is part of the Guadeloupe archipelago in the French West Indies. This island is in fact a haven of peace featuring only one main road. You can explore it on foot, by bike, and especially on a scooter. The island stretches over a rocky plateau. It is 11km in length and is skirted by appealing white sand beaches that are protected by long coral reefs. This makes them consequently the perfect place for swimming, walking enthusiasts, and scuba diving. For this reason, your Guadeloupe boat charter will take you to the best spots for swimming, snorkeling, and diving. Take a scooter and explore the island along the winding road to Grande Montagne. The panoramic views from this tiny village are indeed spectacular.

Visit La Desirade on your Guadeloupe Boat-Charter

La Desirade means “the desire” in French. And according to legend, it was Christopher Columbus who saw the island after many days on the sea without fresh drinking water. Seeing its beauty and the possibility of clean water encouraged him to name it “La Desirade”. The view of beautiful coconut palms and sea grape trees gracing the magnificent beaches gives the name justice. Do not miss La Desirade. Listed as a French geological National Reserve. In addition, it is the oldest island in the Lesser Antilles. Besides, you will find this an excellent place to relax and appreciate its beauty.
