Capesterre-Belle-Eau is the second largest city in Guadeloupe after Pointe-à-Pitre. The city has a rich history and culture, as well as many places of interest for tourists. It was founded by French settlers on 1 January 1763, when it was named Capesterre de Belle Eau (literally "Cape Shore of Beautiful Water"). In 1802 its name changed to Capesterre Bel Air (literally "Cape Shore Fair Air"), but this later changed back to the original name in 1946. The commune consists of two main parts: one part is located on Basse Terre Island and another part is located on Grande Terre Island. The commune also includes a few small islands such as Îlet à Cabrits, Îlet Malabar and Îlets du Roi.
