Village of Terre-de-Haut

Les Saintes, Guadeloupe

Terre-de-Haut has only one village, which goes by the same name as the island. It is the low-key Caribbean that you may have thought no longer existed—its heart consists of just two streets that run parallel to the water, and harborfront restaurants serve seafood straight from the sea. This is the sort of island where some hotels don’t even bother with room keys. There are no historic buildings of note, but there is a lovely town hall painted in yellow and a picturesque stone church. This is less a town for sightseeing and instead a place for a barefoot stroll or whiling away the hours watching the yachts come and go with a glass of rosé in hand.
