La Désirade

Travel Guide Caribbean Guadeloupe La Désirade



La Désirade is a Caribbean island and part of the French overseas department of Guadeloupe. It's located east of the main island, Grande Terre.




La Désirade has a hot and humid tropical climate with average daytime temperatures throughout the year of 30 °C and average nights around 23 °C. Most rain falls between June and October with a change of hurricanes from August onwards. Therefore, the drier (and slightly cooler) December to April period is the best time to visit weather wise. Unfortunately prices rise sharply during this period and the months of November and May still have good weather. So budget wise these latter months may be a good option as well.



Getting There

By Boat

There are daily regular ferries to Grande Anse from Grande Terre with Le Colibri. You can contact them at 357947 in Port de Peche. Iguana is another ferry operator between several islands, including connections between Marie-Galante and La Desirade.
