A popular nature park on the island, Parc Aquacole de Guadeloupe invites guests to take a closer look at the local habitat and the flora and fauna that it promotes.

The property consists of 2.5 hectares of farm property that includes 10 ponds where freshwater shrimp and red tilapia are bred. The company also manages the only marine farm and hatchery on Guadeloupe. Parc Aquacole was landscaped to accommodate visitors who can discover a beautiful collection of palm trees, observe rare and protected birds, practice recreational fishing, or taste the products of the farm when the restaurant is open.
