Guadeloupe National Park
Tucked amid Basse-Terre's verdant mountain landscape sits the Parc National de la Guadeloupe (Guadeloupe National Park), a 74,100-acre rainforest filled with picturesque walking trails. The park's trails include lush forest foliage, magnificent waterfalls, and the summit of La Soufrière volcano. The trails range from short- to long-distance routes that vary in difficulty. Before you go, you'll want to pick up a Guide to the National Park brochure from the Guadeloupe tourism office (located in St. Claude, Basse-Terre) to map out your journey. If you would prefer to admire the park's natural splendours from behind the wheel, drive along the route de la Traversée, a scenic 16-mile road that cuts through the forest.
The park welcomes visitors Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. until 5:30 p.m., and admission is free of charge. For more information about the park's trails and weather advisories, consult the park's official website:

There are plenty of things to do and places to see near the club. Here are our favourites:


Plage de Malendure
Plage Malendure is the nearest beach to the club and is known for its volcanic black sand. Here you will find plenty of restaurants and bars where you can relax by the sea. For the more adventurous, grab your mask and tuba and explore the waters, where you will find turtles nibbling on the vegetation.

Canopee Guadeloupe Canyoning
The staff of Canopee (on Plage Malendure) will take you on an adventure through the Ravine Bourceau. Here you will see all types of flora and vegetation and get the chance to abseil from large heights - with the knowledge that you are safely secured by your harness!

Gwada Pagaie
Just down the road from the club on Plage Malendure, Gwada Pagaie is a great place to hire canoes and kayaks and paddle out to the Pigeon Islands.

Parc des Mamelles, le Zoo de Guadeloupe
This zoo is a 10 minute drive from the club and offers the opportunity to see a wide variety of animals, such as jaguars, monkeys and iguanas.

Les Bains de Thomas
This is a natural hot source in the sea where the water temperature is around 70 degrees.

Le Nautilus
This spacious glass bottomed boat, which leaves from Plage Malendure, allows you to get another perspective of the beautiful reef and magnificent fauna and fish below. On the trip to the nearby Pigeon Islands you will have the opportunity to do some snorkeling in the crystal clear waters of the Reserve Cousteau.

Cascade le Saut de L'Acomat
This stunning waterfall is about a 10-15 minute drive from the club in the direction of Pointe Noire.

Col Des Mamelles
This trail starts on Route de la Traversee and climbs up into the luscious forest. Trainers are a must as the terrain is fairly uneven.
