Aquarium de la Guadeloupe

Aquarium de la Guadeloupe is located in the area of Gosier, a short distance to the south of Pointe-a-Pitre, but the trip is well worth it, as it is often cited as one of France's best aquariums. It showcases the rich marine life of the area, with more than 60 species of tropical fish, sharks, turtles, and many more.

Do & See

Pointe-a-Pitre is compact and easily navigable, offering nicely-preserved 19th-century architecture, vibrant marketplaces, excellent museums and the lively Place de la Victoire, the central square around which much of urban life revolves. The city also serves as a great home base for exploring the nearby natural beauty of the islands, with easy access to the imposing volcano La Grande Soufrière, the Guadeloupe National Park on Basse-Terre, and the other idyllic islands that make up Guadeloupe.
