Terre-de-Haut is a commune in the French overseas department of Guadeloupe, on Terre-de-Haut Island. It is the most populous island of the archipelago of the Îles des Saintes. The Fort Napoléon des Saintes is located in this commune.
Terre-de-Haut, off the southern coast of Guadeloupe, is the only island in the Isles des Saintes archipelago with hotels and restaurants. There is little formalized activity, but one can tour the restored Fort Napoleon or rent mopeds. Located there is the beautiful “Plage de Pompierre” beach, as well as small guest-houses, eateries, French-Creole shops, and an active harbor that ferries passengers from Guadeloupe. The local people make a living from fishing and from tourism. Visitors are free to explore without modern-day intrusion. The Euro is coin of the realm, but credit cards are easily accepted.
