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.
Explore Iles des Saintes' surroundings by going to Saint-Claude (La Soufriere Volcano, Chute du Galion, &more), Gourbeyre (Bassin Bleu & Bains des Amours) and Roches gravees de la riviere du Plessis (in Baillif). There's still lots to do: enjoy the sand and surf at Sugarloaf Beach, take in the dramatic natural features at Le Chameau, explore by horseback at Ranch de Moreau, and step off the mainland to explore Les Saintes.

Plan trip to Iles des Saintes with our itinerary maker to find out where to go and what to do.
