Description: La Désirade is ranked #4 out of 12 things to do in Guadeloupe. See pictures and our review of La Désirade.

It's no wonder Christopher Columbus and his crews were awestruck by the unspoiled beauty of La Désirade (meaning "The Desired One" in French). Legend has it Columbus caught sight of the island after days without fresh drinking water, and hence named the island after his desire to behold landfall (and clean water). On the island, you'll find cacti, coco-palms, and sea grape trees dotting La Désirade's sunny beaches, like Souffleur and Baie Mahault. When you need a break from soaking up the rays, pick up a scooter to explore the winding, main road that stretches up to Grande Montagne, the island's tiny village. From Grand Montagne, you'll behold spectacular panoramic views.

According to many travelers, La Désirade serves as an excellent place to unwind. "This island is very quiet with friendly people. We felt that the day and a half spent there was appropriate. Overall, we were quite pleased with our visit," comments one TripAdvisor user.

You'll find La Désirade just off of Guadeloupe's southern coast. The island sits just five miles from Pointe des Châteaux. Ferries depart daily from St-François (about 25 miles east of Pointe-à-Pitre ) to La Désirade. Call 590/20-05-03 for a current schedule and pricing information.
