Cities & towns of Overseas


Located in the middle of the Caribbean Sea, over 6,000 kilometres from mainland France, the Guadeloupe archipelago is one of the key destinations of the Antilles. Whilst its islands are a dream for fans of idyllic beaches and turquoise lagoons, they also delight nature-lovers, who come here to enjoy exceptional wild landscapes. Climb to the top of the famous Soufrière, hike along the trails of the tropical forest, discover the beauty of the sea bed on a snorkelling or diving trip, take a ride in a catamaran in the Grand Cul-de-Sac Marin nature reserve, admire the local animal and plant life on a leisurely stroll… So many special moments to be experienced to the full! It’s also a paradise for lovers of culinary discoveries: the colourful markets full of exotic fruit and vegetables, spices and seafood, typical Creole dishes, the famous cane juice rum and the delicious coconut sorbet are sure to delight the taste buds… A marvellously exotic and extremely pleasant getaway to look forward to!


While the "island of flowers" is especially popular with those who enjoy a relaxing holiday, with its tropical climate, relaxed pace of life, Creole specialities and idyllic sandy beaches, it also delights nature-lovers. With most of the island protected by the Regional Nature Park, Martinique has exceptional biodiversity as well as extraordinary unspoilt landscapes that hikers love. The Pelée mountain volcano, the Carbet mountains, the Caravelle peninsula, and all the walks in the tropical forest and along the wonderful coastal paths really offer some amazing sights! As well as these natural assets, there's a fascinating architectural and cultural heritage: the Clément habitation, Schoelcher library in Fort-de-France, Case-Pilote Church, remains of Saint-Pierre, and villages full of picturesque charm are just some of the beautiful sights you'll discover during your stay in Martinique!


The unspoiled landscapes, the rain forest, but also the two volcanic massifs Piton des Neiges and Piton de la Fournaise, make the Réunion island a perfect place for nature lovers and hikers.
