Baie Mahault activity details

Baie Mahault, the most populated commune in Guadeloupe, has always been a growth area for sugar cane. This remains the culture of the region. For those who love creole culture, there is a traditional creole hut that you can discover in a wonderful, renowned location.

Baie Mahault, once a harbor that was favored by privateers and freebooters because it is ideally located between Basse-Terre and Grande-Terre, opens up on 3 bays where nautical and water activities are done. A wharf on the outskirts of the town, located on the edge of the lagoon, is where boat trips that allow you to discover the islets of the Grand-Cul-de-Sac-Marin set off from.
