Tinged in delicate pink, the sky over the Caribbean island of Guadeloupe heralds the start of a new day. The Caribbean island is famous for its idyllic, palm-lined beaches and turquoise blue sea. Thanks to its mild climate and cultural diversity, the crescent-shaped island in the Atlantic Ocean attracts tourists all year round. Guadeloupe alone consists of over a dozen islands. Seen from above, the two largest islands, Grande-Terre and Basse-Terre, look like the wings of a huge butterfly and form the mainland of the French overseas department.
