Driving Tips

Driving Tips

Guadeloupe's expressway and main roads are generally maintained to French standards although minor roads suffer from uneven surfaces and potholes. While main roads use European signage and are written in French minor roads and country areas are less likely to be signposted so it is worth investing in a good map. Caution should be taken when driving at night or on mountainous roads. Wherever you drive on the island you will be rewarded with stunning scenery.

More tips for enjoying driving on Guadeloupe:

  • Driving is on the right-hand side on Guadeloupe and Kilometres are used for distances and speed.
  • Children under 12 are not allowed in the front of vehicles and we recommend the use of appropriate child seats at all times.
  • Most roads giving access to beaches are toll roads with tolls paid in the local currency.
  • You should have no problem finding free parking on the island but beware of parking under palm trees as falling coconuts can do considerable damage to your rental vehicle.
  • If you drive off paved surfaces and your rental car is damaged you will be charged for any repair costs.

Top 4 Architectural Sites

  • Memorial ACTe
  • Domaine de Severin Rum Distillery
  • Fort Delgres
  • Musee Saint-John-Perse
The ACTe Memorial is located on the site of the former Darboussier sugar factory in the harbour of Pointe-a-Pitre. This ambitious modern building is a poignant museum dedicated to the collective memory of Caribbean slavery and the slave trade. A visit to the Domaine de Severin takes you into the world of rum distilleries on the island. Enjoy a tour of the distillery and its charming colonial house along with the beautiful gardens. The 17th-century Fort Delgres was built to defend the bay of Basse-Terre from English attacks. As well as being fascinating in its own right it is also part of the island's Slave Route-Traces of Memory network. The municipal Museum of Point-a-Pitre is located in a colourful colonial house. It is dedicated to the Nobel prize-winning poet Alexis Leger who was better known as Saint-John Perse. It gives a fascinating insight into Creole life on Guadeloupe.

Top 4 Natural Sites

  • Soufriere Volcano
  • Pointe de la Grande Vigie
  • Sainte-Anne beach
  • Route de la Traversee
La Grande Soufriere is one of Guadeloupe's active volcanoes and lies on the smaller island of Basse-Terre. Hiking to the top of the volcano rewards you with an eerie view into the crater known as La Porte de l'Enfer or Hell's Gate. Point de la Grand Vigie is the most Northerly point of Guadeloupe. This isolated headland has vertical limestone cliffs that mirror the coastline of Normandy. The family-friendly Sainte-Anne beach is exactly what you would expect of a Caribbean beach with its turquoise waters and golden sands fringed with palm trees. The Route de la Traversee crosses the island of Basse-Terre from East to West. It takes you on a stunning drive through a national park and gives you the opportunity to visit Guadeloupe Zoo.

Important Film locations

For several years the popular TV detective series Death in Paradise has used the island of Guadeloupe as the fictional Caribbean island of Saint-Marie. With scenes shot right across the island and the town of Deshaies doubling as Saint-Marie's capital Honore, the series has made a considerable contribution to Guadeloupe's tourism industry.
