Petit-Bourg is the seventh-largest commune in the French overseas department of Guadeloupe. It is located on the east side of the island of Basse-Terre, and is part of the metropolitan area of Pointe-à-Pitre, the largest metropolitan area in Guadeloupe.
It has many tourist attractions: the Cascade aux Ecrevisse (waterfall), the National Park of Guadeloupe, the Saut de la Lézarde (waterfall), as well as the Kassaverie (cassava/manioc factory) located downtown.
The Karujet race is also held at the Viard beach, near the Montebello roundabout.
