Don't go for one day only, you would only see other tourists. Stay for few nights and enjoy how cool are these islands! Drink a T-punch in front of the sea and relax...

we have booked to come here only for one day, as in august was closing season, no noise, no crowding... It is very beautiful location. We booked a scooter for a few hours, it is enough to spend one day here. If you want to stay more than 1 day, then you need no transport as you can walk (of... More

After a wobbly boat trip we did the van/bus trip for 10 euros. I wouldn't recommend this because we could visit everything without the van actually. We lost time in the narrow streets. It would have been a slightly hard walk tot the fort Napoléon, though, because of the hot weather. Visit the 'left' side of the island (fort Napoléon... More

I've read some of the reviews of cruise ship passengers who thought that this would be an exciting excursion. If you want relaxing, a feel for the French Caribbean, a history lesson, or just to relax this is the place. You can wander the streets, walk the beach, shop a little, go to the fort...it's an amazing place to just... More

We spent a couple of days during our holiday staying at Trois Rivières where there is literally nothing to do. Having decided to spend a day on Terre-de-haut, we bought our ferry tickets the day before we were going and received a discount. The journey was fast and we were glad to be inside as those people who travelled on... More

Les Saintes was one of the excursions we booked, but it wasn't as paradise like as we had expected; probably we didn't visit the correct 'Bay of Les Saintes'; Guided visit, with island busses Fort Napoleon was nice to visit, with a cactus garden and a nice museum inside. Then we went for one hour on a beach, had lunch... More

We were so looking forward to a return trip to Les Saints, we had spent a one day trip there 6 years ago and had booked to stay for 1 week this time. I am afraid Les Saints has been loved to death! The scooters were like angry wasps everywhere and downright dangerous on the narrow roads. Construction noise echoed... More

We got a boat from Saint Francois to Les Saints, the boat trip took about 90 minutes! This island is definitely worth a visit with its quaint little streets, filled with well maintained colourful houses! This island has some small beaches and has a beach that is a natural reserve! You can walk around the island but you can also... More

We arrived on a catamaran and picked up a town mooring. 18 euros for 2 nights. There were plenty of docks to tie the dingy. Town is charming nice shops great food and wonderful atmosphere. It's the French meditaranin. Walk to a few great beaches or rent scooters. Food and good wine are plentiful. We loved Le Genois for dinner.... More
