Plage de Pompierre in Terre-de-Haut, Les Saintes

LES SAINTES / Beaches / Plages

Sensational beaches are easy to find in Les Saintes. On Terre-de-Haut, Plage Pompierre is the most popular beach with its calm waters, excellent snorkeling and covered picnic tables. However, Pompierre is often very crowded and windy and, if you don't watch your things, the ubiquitous goats can create some problems. The small beach at Pain de Sucre is also a favorite with visitors for swimming and snorkeling. Plage Crawen, near the Bois Joli Hôtel, was formerly an official plage naturiste (clothing-optional beach) but the local politics have recently changed that. At the end of the airport runway, Grande Anse (Big Cove) is a magnificent arc of sand but is definitely not safe for swimming. On Terre-de-Bas, a second Grande Anse is considered one of the best beaches in Les Saintes.
