Les Saintes

Highly recommended
Splendid beaches, unspoilt nature and of course some of Guadeloupe's most remarkable underwater scenery... Practically speaking, these are two islands (19km2) an hour's boat trip from Pointe-à-Pitre: Terre-de-Haut is the busier of the two (perhaps too busy) and was originally settled by Breton fishermen; to the west is the quieter Terre-de-Bas, a fishing community since its earliest settlement. It is worth spending a night or two on each island to get a real flavour of them both. A slice of paradise.
