Les Saintes is just a 20-minute ferry ride from Trois Riviéres and is a must-see wonder of nature. Formed by nine unspoiled islands, two of which are uninhabited, the bay at Le Saintes is the third most beautiful in the world.
Fort Napolean overlooks the stunning bay and is worth a visit to hear the history of Guadeloupe’s establishment as well as its customs, including the origin of the popular Tourment d’Amour.
The tart was made by the wives of Les Saintes sailors to welcome their husbands when they returned from being out to sea and is a mix of textures with a crisp outside, soft middle and filling of your choice from coconut to guava. After your visit to the Fort, take a stroll down the bistro-lined streets of Terre de Haut for a little shopping.
