The French islands of Guadeloupe, tucked into the eastern Caribbean, are sometimes called the Butterfly Island – owing to the unique shape of the land. Located on the flat and dry island of Grand Terre, the tropical village of Le Gosier is recognized as one of the most interesting locations in the area.

Le Gosier provides a perfect location to stay in a hostel or hotel while exploring the nine inhabited islands that make up the archipelago of Guadeloupe. The majority of these unique land formations are volcanic, with the exception of the low limestone formation that makes up Grande Terre. With a beautiful subtropical climate, Le Gosier is ideal for travelers hoping to enjoy some rest and relaxation – while participating in a variety of water sports and other outdoor pursuits in this Caribbean paradise.

From your hostel or hotel here in Le Gosier, you can take advantage of a wide range of recreation activities – including scuba diving, snorkeling, boat tours, swimming, or even just attending some of the regular festivals here, known as “parties on the street.” Le Gosier is known for its thriving nightlife, so expect to stay out late!

Plenty of commercial airlines fly directly into Guadeloupe Airport, and from there tourists can easily catch a bus or take a taxi to their local hotel or hostel. Air passes are available for travelers who hope to explore some of the other Caribbean countries nearby, including Cuba, Trinidad, Puerto Rico, Barbados, and the Dominican Republic.

Visitors can also get around by boat. One of the world’s largest yacht charter companies, Windward Islands Yachting Company, operates in the area, and a local shipping company also allows passengers to travel to and from France.

On the island, the bus system is relatively unreliable, but cars can be hired at the airport. Visitors who plan to do a lot of exploring around the archipelago might want to consider investing in a rental car.
