“The best of Guadeloupe”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 7, 2014

We should've stayed here a week. Yes there wouldn't have been a lot to do other than wander about the island, go to the beach, diving and just chilling out but we only stayed for two days :(.

“One of the most beautiful bay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 31, 2013

Ranked 3rd most beautiful bay in the world after Along and Acapulco (Rio has been downrated due to pollution). Looks very nice when arriving with the boat. Nice little streets and very beautiful places to take pictures.
Advice: book a mini-bus tour of the island with "Fred" (phone: 0690361710) since the chap is very friendly (not sure he speaks english though), takes the time to stop for you to take the best pictures, gives lots of insights and little stories, and best of the best, brings you at the end of the tour to the Plage de pompierre (best of the island) and will pick you up at the time you desire to bring you back to the center and get back to your boat. All this for only 10eur (while other tours just drive you for 2h and then drop you in the center at lunch time with no beach nearby and no way to rent a scooter or anything by then...)

“Amazing micro island”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2013

Les Saints island has one of the beautiful bay, a fort and beautiful beach. Day time crowded with tourists. The tourists return at 5pm, then it is a wonderful experience to wander in calm and peaceful ambiance. Two wheeler rentals allow to travel around the island in an hour or long with stop overs. Good hotels are available for stay.

“Best part of France in the Caribbean”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 17, 2013

This tiny town is the best part of France in the Caribbean. Everything works well, and the people are great. You can walk to everything all over the island.
