SURFING HOLIDAYS IN GUADELOUPE
At the moment we offer surfing holidays in St. François in Grande-Terre. When the swells, wind and weather conditions are right, surfers joining one of our Guadeloupe surfaris may hop over to one of the neighbouring islands: Les Saintes, Marie Galante, Désirade, Petite Terre and Grand Cul de Sac Marin.
WHERE TO SURF IN GUADELOUPE?
You can surf all the year round in Guadeloupe and the water ans air temperatures are balmy. Guadeloupe comprises of five islands in total: Basse-Terre, Grande-Terre (separated from Basse-Terre by a narrow sea channel called salt river) with the adjacent islands of La Désirade, Les Saintes and Marie-Galante.
Further to the north, Saint-Barthélemy and the French part of Saint Martin come under the jurisdiction of Guadeloupe. With approx. 306 km’s of coastline these islands are littered with ‘secret spots’.
The western island, Basse-Terre is best during the cyclone season with S-SE swells. The eastern island of Grande-Terre is open to the Atlantic and receives most of the swells and has more consistent surf. The best season is the winter (October through to March) with an average of 4 to 6′, sometines 10′. As we mentioned earlier some spots produce surf worthy of getting your big wave gun out for.
