A commune on the island of Marie-Galante, Grand-Bourg sits in the French overseas region and department of Guadeloupe in the Caribbean. A destination for those who like to flee the big city smoke, the town is the most populated of the 3 communes on the island, so you won't be camping on the beach unless you want to. It might be an idea to think twice about being on its shores during the hurricane season (think between July and November), but the rest of the year you can bask in constant temperature highs of around 32 °C (90 °F) that may drop to 20 °C (68 °F) at night. Originally inhabited by native Arawaks (1st Century), it's rumored that Christopher Columbus may have dropped in for a fleeting visit during his 2nd voyage in 1493. French colonists built a fort here in 1653 on its undulating land that is dominated by a mangrove forest in the north and broad beaches along its coastline protected by coral reef in the south. Fishing and tourism are its main economy, so it's no wonder that coworking venues have opened up to cater to the globe-trotting souls who may wish to connect with the rest of the world.
When you get tired of lazing on the beach or swimming in pristine waters, there is an airport that will have you in Guadeloupe within 15 minutes. This is a land of sugar cane fields with a sugar factory in the north. Plage de la Feuillère is were you will find the sun worshippers sunning their bronzed bodies along a 2km stretch of pure white sand. If you want to take in a bit of the local history you can check out the Murat Plantation that once had 207 slaves and was considered to be the largest sugar cane plantation in Guadeloupe in 1839, or gawk around a smoke stack at the Roussel-Trianon Plantation that is today owned by the Council General of Guadeloupe. If you like the odd drop of rum to pass your lips you will definitely be grinning from ear to ear, as the Bielle distillery produces about 120,000 liters of rum annually.
Grand-Bourg is no tech hub, but it does have its fair share of tech savvy souls that linger in the area for its laid-back lifestyle, so it's little wonder that coworking venues have opened up to give them somewhere to go to do some work when they are over being on the beach.
