MarieGalante

Marie-Galante is a rural island untouched by mass tourism. It offers visitors lovely uncrowded beaches and some great country scenery. Very few English-speaking tourists come this way, which is just as well, as few of the island’s 13,000 residents speak any English at all.

Much of Guadeloupe’s largest outer island is planted in sugar cane. The undistinguished commercial and administrative centre of Grand-Bourg, on the southwestern coast, has about half the population; most of the rest are evenly divided between its two smaller towns, Capesterre and Saint-Louis.
