The island of Grande Terre is flat and devoted mostly to growing sugar cane.
This panorama was taken in the middle of the fields after our lunch. Grande
Terre is almost always sunny, just like this.
Although mostly flat, Grande Terre rises up steeply from the Atlantic, its coral
history evident here at Pointe de la Grande Vigie.
The crater at La Soufriere is often shrouded in mist, both from the steam
issuing from the caldera and from the clouds blowing over. Basse Terre, home
to La Soufriere, shows its volcanic origins in its mountainous terrain and the
rain forests on the slopes of the volcano.
Pointe des Châteaux is one of the wildest areas of Guadeloupe, at the very tip of Grande Terre. The wind is always blowing, and the surf crashes viciously onto the beach there. This view is from the high point at the tip of Grande Terre.
This is a view of the headquarters of Fort Napoleon on Les Saintes. It is on a
high outcropping of Terre d'Haute. We found the fort a fascinating place to
visit and stroll around. There were lots of iguanas, and the place was
inhabited by a multitude of goats as well. This panorama has a link to the
following panorama, and it shows the beach where the UCPA is located.
This is a view of the fort, but it also gives a great view of the harbor. We
have a link back to the first panorama, along with a link to the page of iguana
photographs. The link is on the panorama where we saw the lizards.
On Les Saintes, Terre d'Haute has a crucifix high on a hill overlooking the
town (and near the airport), and it gives some great views of the island. This
panorama has links to better photos of the crucifix and of a nearby shrine.
This is a 180-degree view of the harbor of Gustavia, taken just as the sunset.
