This enchanting island still remains one of the best-kept secrets in the Caribbean. Fortunate visitors to Marie-Galante will discover rolling green hills, turquoise lagoons, picturesque villages and spectacular beaches.

Visitors will feel they have moved back in time to an era of charming architecture, nineteenth century windmills and colorful markets. Traditional oxcarts can be seen bringing in crops from the cane fields. This is a place of mystical beauty with lush greenery and fascinating historical sites such as the 18th century Château Murat.

Marie-Galante is a perfect island to explore by car, scooter, mountain-bike or hiking. Located about 30 km (18 miles) south of Guadeloupe, the magic of the true Caribbean and its rural traditions await within its circular coastline.
