Guadeloupe is a favourite of Caribbean sailors, owing to its beautiful year-round weather and a good mix of sailing conditions to suit all abilities. As with other areas of the Caribbean, you may want to avoid Guadeloupe between August and September, as this is the hurricane season. Outside of this window, the sailing conditions are perfect with enthralling line-of-site navigation between islands. Experienced sailors have enough of a challenge to whet their appetite, while beginners should stick to renting a boat with a skipper, so as to avoid the pitfalls of traversing coral reefs amid changing winds. When chartering for a week, an experienced skipper will give travellers a chance to relax and soak in the stunning surroundings without the worry of sailing themselves.
This little French paradise in the Caribbean is accessible year-round with flights in and out of Pointe-à-Pitre International Airport. Several international airlines, including Air France, Air Canada and Air Belgium, provide direct flights, with Air Antilles offering domestic and regional travel throughout the Caribbean. With picturesque waterfalls, mountain vistas and coastal port towns offering the freshest fish, Guadeloupe is an evocative boat charter destination which offers both vibrancy and seclusion in equal measure. From historic ports to world-class surfing, snorkelling and diving, Guadeloupe is one of the top sailing destinations in the world.
