No matter how you organise your trip to Les Saintes, it will always start in its capital, Terre-de-Haut. This small village on the biggest island (also called Terre-de-Haut) is the commercial centre of the small archipelago with shops, the harbour and a strong emphasis on tourism. Despite this clear focus on tourism it is a pleasant town to visit with a calm and friendly atmosphere.

The village is located in a wonderful bay, that is chosen as one of the most beautiful ones in the world by the website www.world-bays.com. When you arrive by boat, or from the both sides of the bay you have a great view of the town. The roofs are orange, the walls are light and all the buildings have a charming, old look. Walking around in the streets a good way to discover Terre-de-Haut.

In the centre of the town there are two small squares: one at the harbour and one at the church. Around both these squares nice, old buildings can be found. In the streets around them you'll find the shops and restaurants.

Address: Terre-de-Haut, Terre-de-Haut, Les Saintes
