Guadeloupe is a territory of France situated between Antigua and Dominica in the Lesser Antilles made up of the large, butterfly-shaped Basse-Terre and four smaller islands, Grande-Terre, La Desireade, Les Saintes and Marie-Galante. An experienced fleet of ferries ties the archipelago together, providing the basic infrastructure for an economy based on tourism and agriculture, in which the majority of Guadeloupe's 400,000 permanent residents are employed. The longstanding ties with France make Guadeloupe an especially popular destination for visitors from that country; the official language is French, and the currency used is the Euro. Every island offers a unique blend of stunning beaches, fields of sugar cane and bananas and French-Caribbean culture. There is truly something for everyone here, from water sports to fine food to natural landscapes. Especially popular attractions include a live volcano known as La Grand Soufriere and the Parc National de la Guadeloupe with its triple waterfall. Golfers who travel here should consider bringing their clubs, for there are now three places to play. The premier club is Golf International de St François, on the southeastern edge of Grande-Terre, which features a full-sized layout created in 1978 by Robert Trent Jones. The other options for play in Guadeloupe are Bwa Chik Hotel and Golf and Hotel Golf Village.
