Fresh news from Sunsail: Get the best of the Caribbean with a new sailing option

Enjoy a stay at Club Colonna followed by some sailing around the stunning French island of Guadeloupe, where you will be in for some exhilarating cruising from this famous butterfly shaped island.
Guadeloupe is the centre of the Caribbean’s Creole culture, boasting a lively blend of French and African influences. Well known for its sugar and rum and for its beaches and resorts, the archipelago offers an exciting mix of modern cities, rural communities, rainforests and secluded beaches - and some exceptional sailing.

Head south on an easy 4 hour sail to Marie Galante, the largest of Guadeloupe’s outer islands, which provides plenty of secluded anchorages and ‘off the beaten track’ cruising areas.

Visitors love the uncrowded beaches and rural countryside, which is untouched by tourism. For some entertainment ashore, take a tour around the 200 year old rum factory which is still in operation here.

The tiny islands of Iles des Saintes are sparsely populated and offer some fantastic fishing ports and colourful markets. And a further 4 hour sail brings you to Dominica, a nature lover’s paradise, where you can enjoy some hiking tours around the island’s rainforests.

Combined with a stay at Sunsail’s award-winning Club Colonna, this means that as well as some great sailing action you also have the chance to relax ashore if you want to - or simply change pace with some fantastic watersports facilities.
