Cruises from Basse-Terre
Basse-Terre, on Basse-Terre Island, is the administrative capital of Guadeloupe, an overseas region of France located in the Lesser Antilles, Eastern Caribbean. It is filled with various historical landmarks and forts that date back to 1643, as well as several colonial buildings and monuments all around the city. It is connected to Grande-Terre by the Point de la Gabare Bridge that is built over Riviere Salee. Known for its many delightful beaches such as Malendure beach, the Centre Nautique de Basse-Terre and Marina de Rivière Sens, all offer great opportunities for a range of water activities.
Nearby Deshaies on the northwest tip of Basse-Terre is the location of the BBC TV series “Death in Paradise”.
