On the northern tip of the island, the town of Sauteurs (whose French name translates as ‘Jumpers’) is best known for its grim history. In 1651, local Carib families elected to throw themselves off the 130ft-high cliffs that line the coast rather than surrender to the advancing French army.
Modern Sauteurs is a pretty little town with colorful houses and a magnificent Anglican church. Just to the northwest of town there is an inviting long beach backed by coconut palms that offers views over to the Grenadine islands. It's got a village vibe, especially in the late afternoon when locals come down to relax.
