A Day at St. Anne’s Beach In Guadeloupe

Guadeloupe is one of my fave Caribbean islands, there's no denying it. Brightly coloured buildings, a relaxed but carnivalesque vibe, and some of the most glorious beaches I've ever laid eyes on; it's frankly just downright marvellous. There are GOOD TIMES to be had here! I visited St Anne on my last day in Guadeloupe, [...]

Guadeloupe, a tiny overseas region of France, is a beaut island located at the meeting of the Atlantic Ocean and the Caribbean Sea, and looks on a map very similar to the shape of a little butterfly.
