Deshaies ©
The sleepy town of Deshaies walks the line between tradition and development, possessing an international feel while also sticking true to its island roots.
We've included these beaches for you: Plage de Grande Anse and Anse Tillet. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Regy Balade and Ranch des 2 ilets. Explore Deshaies' surroundings by going to Domaine de l'Habitation la Griveliere (in Vieux-Habitants), Ranch de Moreau (in Goyave) and Plantation Grand Cafe (in Capesterre-Belle-Eau). And it doesn't end there: kick back and relax at Plage Leroux, head outdoors with Plage Cluny, get great views at Anse a la Barque, and see some colorful creatures with a scuba or snorkeling tour.
