The 13th season of Death in Paradise is currently being filmed and is due to reach our screens in January 2024.
Once again ‘Saint Marie’ is the backdrop for the trials and tribulations of the police force on the tiny Caribbean island.
While Saint Marie is not a real island, we can reveal that the hit BBC One series is currently being filmed on Guadeloupe.
Expect stars such as Ralf Little as DI Neville Parker alongside Don Warrington who is back on duty as the Commissioner for Death in Paradise season 13.
Rumours suggest that Hayley Mills may be appearing, although not confirmed as yet.

What we do know, is that the stars will be enjoying the stunning island as they film the series over many months.
The island sits in the French Caribbean region which is why many of the extras speak French. It has all the prerequisites of a beautiful Caribbean island: leaning palm trees, pristine beaches, and turquoise waters.
The town that features in the series, Honore, is filmed in the Deshaies commune which sits on the north west part of the island.
It’s also home to a stunning beach, Grand Anse, with wide sands, fringed in palm trees with the commune dotted with typical Creole houses and a lovely little church.
It also has a picturesque Botanical Garden with lush planting and is a must for bird watchers thanks to its population of brightly coloured birds.

When film crews aren’t in ‘residence’ Deshaies is a charming, laid-back fishing village. The island might be French but it has still a spicy side to it with fabulous creole food and a typical Caribbean joie de vivre.
Thanks to its beautiful location many of the activities are based on the water such as sailing, snorkelling and scuba diving.
Holidaymakers visit not only for the dreamy shoreline but for the interior where you’ll find many beautiful waterfalls and hiking trails, particularly on the western side of the island (Basse-Terre).
Many make the hike up the active La Soufriere volcano which takes around two hours before relaxing the muscles in the Bains Jaunes thermal pool. This being the Caribbean, means there is rum to be sampled and the local ‘delicacy’ is Rhum Agricole which is distilled from sugarcane juice.
The Damoiseau Distillery is one of the biggest and you can take a self- guided tour of it before, naturally, plenty of tastings.
