1 Best Place to Shop in Marie-Galante, Guadeloupe

La Suite

This classy boutique is something that you might expect to find in St. Barth or St. Martin, not on the out-island of Marie-Galante. The shop is a mélange of cosmetics, perfumes, beachwear, vintage cards and art, seagrass baskets, and coffee-table books on the island's history and culture. Products are all natural from Guadeloupe and St. Martin—glamorous cosmetics to essential oils, along with bug spray (which you will need on this island). And then there are some accessories like French sunglasses, flip-flop wedgies and utilitarian ones with recycled rubber from Kenya, and beads and original jewelry by island designers like Nathalie Julan. If you're lucky, you may come on a day when an evening soirée is planned—something literary, with a guitarist and flutist performing, or a beauty makeover.
