The island is certainly worth more than a single day visit - was the best part of our visit to Guadeloupe and wish we had stayed here for a few days. The island is easy to get around - either walking or hiring an electric car or scooter. Some really nice charming beaches, quiet roads, slow pace of life and... More

We came here for the day from the St. Francois ferry. The ferry ride over was about 2 hours each way and a little wavy but a scenic ride. I would recommend taking Dramamine if you are prone to sea sickness and it's a windy day. The island is quaint and great for walking around and exploring. It has a... More

We stayed at caraibes royal. From caraibes royal you either drive east then south or south then east. Former is faster. We drove to Trois Rivieres and reached there around 7.45. If you come later you will still get ticket but parking might be diffficult. Parking is 5 euros. Ferry to Les saintes round trip is 18 euros for adult... More

We stayed a week and didn't want to leave. If you make a day-trip, you will want to come back. This is "the next St. Barts" or a little bit of Mykonos or Santorini dropped into the Caribbean. Fabu.

Great for 2 or 3 day stay not much more. If you are not doing a one day visit than skip the moped rental and just walk around. This island is not too big and if you have 2 days than you will manage to see everything. Best snorkeling is around the pain sucre but the beach is small.

I did a day trip from Guadeloupe on the approapriately named Miss Guadeloupe ferry. This was chaotic to say the least and there was a lot of pushing and shoving and queue jumping. But it was quite good natured in an annoying sort of way. The ferry journey was about 20 minutes. It can be quite choppy so beware if... More

A stunning day out and definitely worth a trip whilst in Guadeloupe. I took the ferry from Trois Rivieres to benefit from a shorter crossing by boat - only 15 minutes. The weather could not have been any better and I got a view of Dominqiue, Martinique, Guadeloupe and Marie Galante whilst there! Fort Napoleon is a good way to... More

Looking for a GREAT day trip out of Guadeloupe. Take the ferry to Les Saintes. The little town is charming, gorgeous and friendly. The beach north of the island is spectacular and uncrowded. And there are several truly excellent French/seafood places at which one can dine well. Negative: If you are looking for a vibrant night life, Les Saintes is... More

Spent 2 days here. Was absolutely gorgeous. Snorkeling at Pain de Sucre was some of the best I've encountered. Traversing the Island in an electric car was a blast. Hope to come back again.

This was my second visit to Les Saintes by sailing yacht and it just keeps getting better. Ten years ago the island had fewer residents and visitors; many of the buildings were rougher but the charm bubbled through. The town has a variety of pleasant shops, restaurants and bars. Today the island is a bit more polished. The house are... More
