Gingerly Exploring Grand Cul-de-Sac Marin in Guadeloupe Islands
Protected by a giant coral reef (25 km long), the Grand Cul-de-Sac Marin lies in the heart of the northern half of the "two wings" (Grande-Terre & Basse-Terre) that make up the Guadeloupe Butterfly. This vast natural sanctuary, ranked a World Biosphere Reserve by UNESCO, is surrounded by tranquil, crystal clear, turquoise waters and is exceptionally wealthy in marine life - turtles, colorful fish, corals, flora, starfish, coastal mangroves, and marine birds all thrive heartily in this protected reserve, making for breathtaking snorkeling and bird watching experiences. There are also a two wrecks for divers to explore, and tiny uninhabited islands, including the newest, îlet Blanc (born in 1989 from Hurricane Hugo) where you can witness marine creatures developing in their protected sanctuary.
