We visited Les Saintes on a daytrip from Basse Terre and enjoyed it. Peacefull setting, nice beaches and restaurants. Only 40 minutes by bout from Les Trois Rivieres, sea can be rough sometimes.

Using the ferry we visited the island for a day after arriving late one morning and staying till the next afternoon. You should rent a scooter as it goes a long way in helping you explore the whole island. There are a number of different beaches in every corner, giving you the chance to pick your favorite type. The immediate... More

Picturesque anchorage in a completely foreign country, idyllic. The water is clear but, deep, a mooring is much easier than anchoring. The people are friendly and try to help if you don't speak French. The Saintes Multiservices usually are happy to deliver warm baked goods to your boat first thing in the morning. What could be better than warm chocolate... More

This small island has so much to offer it should be a must for all travellers in the area. Fort Napoleon overlooks the harbour and surrounding territory, the museum is very entertaining. You can walk to it in about 35-40 minutes. Scooter and quad rentals are readily available for the rest of the island. Le Chameau Tower lookout is the... More

If you decide to go to Guadeloupe, make sure to set at least one day aside to go to this spledid island. A quick 20 minutes ferry ride from Trois-Rivieres, and voila: Paradise. Rent a moped and take a tour around Terre De Haut, make sure you don't miss the natural aquarium of plage de Pain de Sucre (sugarloaf beach).

We arrived to Guadeloupe from Europe and we decided to go straight to the Saintes by boat in order to cope with the difference of time (in Guadeloupe less 6 hours from France) and it was very wise to do so. The Saintes (Terre de Haut) is a small and lovely island. Here, you can rent either a motorbike or... More

Came by Cruise ship. Was totally surprised by this little jewel. Imagine St Bart's 50 years ago or better. Quaint doesn't begin to describe this little place of a few thousand souls. One of my new favorite places on earth

My wife and I spent the day in Les Saintes while on a cruise. After our excursion, we had some time to walk through the downtown, which has quite a few nice shops. Some are the typical tourist stuff but others offer nicer items. There are also several restaurants. There's a pretty harbor and some options for tours and watersports.... More
