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.
On the 2nd (Thu), sample the fine beverages at Distillerie Longueteau and then step off the mainland to explore Les Saintes. Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the next day: get interesting insight from Les Ecuries de la Coulisse, then get impressive views of La Soufriere Volcano, and then cast your line with Madatet Fishing.
