Some would say it's "France in the tropics", as the country of Guadeloupe where Pointe-a-Pitre sits is known for its cuisine that combines local goodies with French culinary techniques, "nouvelle cuisine Creole". It has a strong Caribbean Island vibe with a mish mash of inhabitants from white French descendants to Asians and African-Guadeloupeans. Pointe-a-Pitre is the largest city and economic hub of Guadeloupe sitting on the island of Grand-Terre. It was founded in the 1600s as a bustling market town and it is still relatively small enough to get around on foot. Coworking venues have now opened up to cater to its innovative locals, as well as the globe trotting nomads with laptops in their backpacks who are craving an escape to an idyllic island lifestyle.
This is no tech or startup hub, but it does have everything to lure the most intrepid soul to its shores. The city itself is not the most pretty to meander around and most people end up on its stunning beaches. Pointe-a-Pitre is endeavoring to change this image with its beautiful central square, Place de la Victoire, going under a recent refurbishment plus its port area where cruise ships dock has been cleaned up. The landscape of Grande Terre is flat and dry with a ring of golden beaches of impossibly clear and calm turquoise water. The city is famous for its exotic markets; funky cafes, colonial homes and the Marche de la Darse where fishermen sell their daily catch from boats in the harbor.
A wonderful escape hatch for the adventurous soul looking for an alternative existence, coworking has now created the perfect scene where the locals and the wanderers can hang out together whilst getting some work done or sparking those collaborative moments. Plus when the brain is about to implode, you can escape even further to one of the islands of Marie-Galante or Les Saintes.
