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

Come from Guadeloupe by ferry for a day or a week, or better yet, visit by private yacht or charter boat, pick up a mooring in the harbor, and soak up the sun and sea. Walk to any of several lovely beaches, and climb the peaks to visit the 18th-century forts. The walks and the views are extraordinary. You will... More

Overall quite disappointed by our day-trip to Les Saintes. We booked a ferry from St François which was our first mistake. The boat journey is very very long, almost 2 hours and half the people on board were sick between St Anne and the stopover in Marie Galante because the sea was rough. The crew is obviously used to it... More

When going to les saintes, go with Beatrix boat, they sell tickets in the harbour and offer great service. They also have many transfers a day. Whatever you do, do not choose valferry, the boat was a wreck and you can only return from les saintes at 4 pm or 6 am. We chose to go back with another company... More

You go by boat to Les Saintes. The waves are high and the water splashes, so perhaps you want to sit indoors. On the island the houses are picturesque and nice to look at. You can walk and visit the old French fortress Fort Napoléon, which is worthwhile to see.

After a very shaky and bumpy 20 minutes boat ride, you arrive on these cute tiny tropical islands with a quaint nice little village and 2 or 3 beaches. The view is fantastic and you can find a few good restaurants on the main street of the village. Except the beach "Plage du Pain de Sucre" don't expect calm waters.... More

Small idyllic island south of Trois-Rivieres. We stayed for 5 days which is OK if you are looking for a peaceful place, otherwise 3 days is enough. It's like a small village in south of France an you will find a handful good restaurants. The beaches are OK, not excellent. If you are looking for crystal white beaches you need... More

This is a charming place to wander around with a pleasant French touch especially in the way of cafes and restaurants. Goats, iguanas and sheep wander about on the hillside. A walk to Fort Napoleon is either the hike.

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
