While Guadeloupe’s stunning coastlines and lush forest greenery may well be the main draw for tourists, for those willing to drag themselves away from the beach, the city of Pointe-à-Pitre is ready and waiting to be explored. The heart of the city is Place de la Victoire, where locals spend their free time relaxing in the park and plaza and sipping on a coffee in one of the many cafés that line the pavements and the harbour. For a different perspective on Pointe-à-Pitre and Guadeloupe, the Mémorial ACTe is a museum on slavery and colonialism which provides an insight into the history of these islands. It would also be a shame to pass up on the chance to sample some authentic cuisine, where fresh seafood, spices and local fruit feature heavily in the dishes, some of the most popular being stuffed crab or matete, a hot crab curry.
