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.
Visiting Scuba & Snorkeling and Plage Leroux will get you outdoors. Popular historic sites such as Domaine de l'Habitation la Griveliere and Anse a la Barque are in your itinerary. Change things up with these side-trips from Deshaies: La Soufriere Volcano (in Saint-Claude), Domaine de Vanibel (in Vieux-Habitants) and Distillerie Bologne (in Basse-Terre). And it doesn't end there: stroll through Anse Tillet, head outdoors with Cascade le Saut de L'Acomat, add some adventure to your tour with a kayaking and canoeing tour, and explore the galleries of Reve de Sable.

Brussels, Belgium to Deshaies is an approximately 14-hour combination of train and flight. You can also fly. Due to the time zone difference, you'll gain 5 hours traveling from Brussels to Deshaies. Plan for much warmer temperatures traveling from Brussels in November, with highs in Deshaies at 35°C and lows at 26°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 24th (Tue) early enough to travel to Iles des Saintes.
