Vues du restaurant couleurs du monde

When you get to the pier in Terre de Haut, your guide will greet you in the main square, in front of the Tourist Office. WARNING! The activities with your guide will start between 8:30 and later depending on when the other boats arrive and on the minibus’ occupancy rates. You will get to stroll in the charming town with its lovely shops or go for a spot of breakfast with a view of the bay: Magical! You will join the 8- to 9-person group at the meeting time that the guide will have given you. He will then drive you to the heights of Terre de Haut, to the “Fort Napoléon” museum (5€ entry fee not included). This will take you deep into the Saintes’ history, as well Guadeloupe’s history. You will get around an hour for the tour and to take advantage of the breathtaking view of the bay from the fort’s gardens.

This will be followed by an hour-long tour through the town’s narrow roads and then along the seashore. Your guide will describe the locations while telling you about the stories and traditions of the island. You will then have the choice to either get on board a glass-bottomed kayak (10€) or simply go for a dip in the wonderful Saintes bay.

At around midday, the restaurant will open its doors for the aperitif consisting of a fruit juice or planteur with some accras. The aperitif will be followed by a succulent plate of fish (exotic sauce) with a side dish of rice and fresh vegetables... Finally, to end the meal with finesse, you will get an ice cream with its whipped cream, with hints of the islands’ sweet fragrances, for dessert. Drinks, water and a glass of wine (red, rosé, or white) included. After the meal, you are free to choose between doing or redoing a water activity (Paddleboard or kayak 10€/hour) or opt for farniente on the beach, swimming, or visiting the town (its church, its shops, ...). You will finally get back to the pier nearby to go back to the port you came from with the feeling that you got to enjoy this exceptional location fully.
