Shopping Streets

Being an overseas French territory, many imported French products can be found on Guadeloupe, especially in Pointe-a-Pitre. The shopping streets of Frebault, Nozieres and Schoelcher are some of the main commercial avenues and are home to numerous shops and boutiques featuring such items.


Visitors to Guadeloupe can find many imported French luxury items, including fashion, perfumes, jewellery and delicatessen, like cheese and liquor. But the most rewarding shopping comes from supporting local industry, which offers wonderful handicrafts, rum and typical clothes and accessories, among others. Markets are a particular pleasure, filled as they are with the colours, sounds and aromas of the islands, and the numerous speciality boutiques carry some unique gifts and mementos.
