Luxury Yacht Charter Guadeloupe

Yacht Charter in Guadeloupe

Up until now its claim to fame has been its butterfly-shaped form from above, but now Guadeloupe looks set to gain prominence as an emerging luxury yacht charter destination. In fact, Guadeloupe is a great deal more than a big island shaped like a butterfly. The newest Caribbean yacht charter hot spot is actually an archipelago consisting of five other islands: Marie-Galante, La Desirade, Petite-Terre and Iles des Saintes. The islands are characterized by stunning white sandy beaches, dense rain forest interspersed with tumbling waterfalls and a natural beauty which literally takes your breath away.
