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.

There's still lots to do: admire the natural beauty at Jardin Botanique de Deshaies, kick back and relax at Plage de la Perle, pause for some serene contemplation at Eglise Saint Pierre et saint Paul, and head outdoors with Regy Balade.
