Add To Plan

Spend free time in Sainte Anne, a fishing village on Grand-Terre’s southern coast that has become a remarkably popular destination known for shopping, dining and beaches.

Depart from the pier and drive approximately twenty-five minutes along the southern coast of the island of Grand-Terre, the easternmost “wing” of butterfly-shaped Guadeloupe. Your destination is Sainte Anne, a seaside village renowned for its appealing Creole atmosphere. Although once the island’s largest producer of sugar cane, Sainte Anne has since diversified to become a center of island culture, especially around the waterfront Artists Village.

During your nearly three hours in Sainte Anne, you can wander about as you please. The streets are usually abuzz with activity, as the townspeople shop for fresh fish, fruits and vegetables at several open-air markets downtown. There are also plenty of boutiques selling casual fashions, swimwear and handicrafts ranging from woven baskets to hammocks.

The beaches around Sainte Anne are also immensely popular and just a few minutes walk from the village. You will have plenty of time to enjoy them without feeling rushed. Local vendors often walk up and down the shore, offering ice-cold fruit drinks, or if you would prefer something more substantial there are excellent restaurants close by. French-inspired seafood and Creole dishes flavored with local fruits are specialties found on almost every menu.

Following your free time in Sainte Anne, you will rejoin your bus and drive back to the pier.

Please note: Walking on this tour is at the guests’ discretion. The tour is available to wheelchair guests who have a collapsible wheelchair, are able to make their own way on and off the bus and have an able-bodied companion to assist them. Those guests with mobility concerns are cautioned to carefully evaluate their personal level of stamina and ability. Light-weight clothing; sun cap; sunglasses; sunscreen; and flat, comfortable walking shoes are recommended. Guests who wish to swim or relax on the beach should wear a swimsuit under their clothes and bring a towel from the ship. Those participating in any water activities do so at their own risk and responsibility. Should you not be on time for the return transfer to ship, you will need to make your own way back, at your own expense.
