Formed from the smoldering flow of ancient volcanoes, the two adjacent islands that flair like butterfly wings either side of a salt lake are the Yin and Yang of Guadeloupe. Green foliage paints the slopes of mountainous Basse-Terre, the western wing, while developed resorts, rolling fields of sugar cane and broiling surf flush out the eastern half of this topographically and culturally rich destination. Joined by two narrow strips of land, the two halves of Guadeloupe are today under French sovereignty, so finding a breakfast baguette and a Creole catch dinner won't pose a problem.
High white clouds are the only limit to the endless stretches of sky and water that swirl around the palm trees, beaches and bright colors of Martinique. While a visit to this island would be incomplete without leisurely hours lounging beside the warm sea, there are also inland attractions to keep you occupied when you're after a break from the sun.
