Lying just 1km to the west of Terre-de-Haut, Terre-de-Bas is the only other inhabited island in Les Saintes. It's an idyllic place that was historically home to sugar and coffee plantations. With these long gone, the island relies on fishing for its livelihood and tourism has yet to take root. Despite this, there is a regular ferry service between the islands, making it possible for visitors to poke around on a day excursion, or even stay overnight.
The main village, Petite-Anse, is on Terre-de-Bas' west coast. It has hilly streets lined with trim houses, a small fishing harbor, and a quaint church with a graveyard of tombs decorated with conch shells and plastic flowers. Grande Anse, diagonally across the island on the east coast, is a small village with a little 17th-century church and a good beach.
