Guadeloupe

French flagGuadeloupe is not a single island, but a collection of five islands. The largest two, Basse-Terre and Grande-Terre are seperated by a narrow channel known as the Riviere Salee (Salt River).

The islands are not particulary habitable, with Basse-Terre being rugged, volcanic mountains, and Grand-Terre comprising lightly forested plains. Fortunately, the soil on the plains is fertile, and the French cultivate crops here, though not enough for export.
