A Slice of Southern France in the Middle of the Caribbean
Laid back and off the beaten path, the eight idyllic tropical islands of Les Saintes are part of a volcanic archipelago fully encircled by shallow reefs. Only two are inhabited, of which picturesque Terre-de-Haut is one.
Everything you look for in a tropical paradise is contained within its six square miles—superb beaches, gorgeous bays, exceptional snorkelling, historical sites, and a charming village of bougainvillea-shaded lanes lined with tiny brightly painted houses, excellent restaurants, interesting shops, and unique art galleries.
The men of Les Saintes are fishermen, reputedly the best in the West Indies—seafood for dinner anyone?
Fort Napoleon dates to the mid-1800s. Its construction began under Napoleon I and completed under Napoleon III. Though never used as a fort, the site provides a wonderful view of the bay and features a small museum telling the history of the island.
Plage Pompierre is the most popular beach on the island. With clear and clean water, the beach offers excellent snorkeling and there is plenty of shade to escape the Caribbean sun
