You can see our anchorages on the west coast of Basse-Terre at Dehais in the north, and Pigeon Island about half way down.  The 2 wings of the Guadeloupe "butterfly" are very different, with Grande Terre (on the right) being a low flat island extensively cultivated in sugar cane, banana, pineapple, and coconuts.  Basse Terre (on the left) is high and mountainous, with beautiful rushing streams, waterfalls, and tropical rainforests down the middle and semi-active Mt. Soufriere towards the bottom.  The east side of the mountains are lush and cultivated, but the west side is much drier, as the rain comes from the east and drops most of its moisture on the eastern slopes.
