Where is Guadeloupe?

Guadeloupe is a French overseas department and overseas region comprising a group of islands in the Lesser Antilles chain in the eastern Caribbean Sea. The British overseas territory of Montserrat and the Dominican Republic are the closest neighbors of the main islands, to the northwest and the south, respectively. Around 74 miles (120 km) to the south is the island of Martinique, which is also a French overseas department. The twin islands of Basse-Terre and Grande-Terre, which are located to the west and east, respectively, make up the majority of Guadeloupe's territory. The Salee River, a narrow passageway, divides the two. The Saintes Islands (Terre-de-Haut and Terre-de-Bas) are one more island in the group, as are Marie-Galante to the southeast, La Desirade to the east, and Marie-Galante.
