Deshaies

The sleepy town of Deshaies walks the line between tradition and development, possessing an international feel while also sticking true to its island roots.
Venture out of the city with trips to Parc National (Route de la Traversee & Cascade aux Ecrevisses), Bouillante (Parc des Mamelles, le Zoo de Guadeloupe, Memorial de la Liberte, &more) and Les Bieres de la Lezarde (in Petit-Bourg). There's lots more to do: enjoy the sand and surf at Plage de Grande Anse, stroll through Plage de la Perle, take in the exciting artwork at Reve de Sable, and discover the deep blue sea with a scuba or snorkeling tour.

For more things to do, reviews, where to stay, and tourist information, read Deshaies road trip planning website.

Rennes, France to Deshaies is an approximately 15.5-hour combination of train, bus, and flight. The time zone difference moving from Central European Standard Time (CET) to Atlantic Standard Time (AST) is minus 5 hours. Plan for warmer temperatures traveling from Rennes in January, with highs in Deshaies at 34°C and lows at 24°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 8th (Fri) early enough to go by car to Sainte-Anne.

Sainte-Anne

Although the surrounding area continues to depend on agriculture, Sainte-Anne thrives largely thanks to tourism, offering visitors modern infrastructure and plenty of chances to experience the authentic local lifestyle.
Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Sainte-Anne: Saint Francois (Kreol West Indies, Pointe des Chateaux, &more), Anse du Souffleur (in Port-Louis) and Petit-Canal (Yaka Gwada & Les Marches des Esclaves). There's still lots to do: kick back and relax at St. Anne Beach, add some adventure to your tour with Kaya'kool, step off the mainland to explore Petite Terre, and meet the residents at Aquarium de la Guadeloupe.

For maps, photos, where to stay, and other tourist information, go to the Sainte-Anne trip itinerary builder.

Drive from Deshaies to Sainte-Anne in 1.5 hours. Alternatively, you can take a bus. Expect a daytime high around 34°C in January, and nighttime lows around 24°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 15th (Fri) so you can travel to Iles des Saintes.

Les Saintes

Iles des Saintes, a small archipelago of eight islands, remains largely unblemished by touristic developments, offering instead a serene and natural introduction to island life.
Venture out of the city with trips to Saint-Claude (Madatet Fishing & La Soufriere Volcano), Domaine de l'Habitation la Griveliere (in Vieux-Habitants) and Roches gravees de la riviere du Plessis (in Baillif). The adventure continues: head off the coast to Les Saintes, trot along with Les Ecuries de la Coulisse, kick back and relax at Crawen, and tour the pleasant surroundings at Sugarloaf Beach.

To find maps, other places to visit, where to stay, and tourist information, refer to the Iles des Saintes trip site.

Traveling by combination of bus and ferry from Sainte-Anne to Iles des Saintes takes 4.5 hours. In January in Iles des Saintes, expect temperatures between 34°C during the day and 24°C at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 21st (Thu) so you can travel back home.
