It is located at the very tip of Grande-Terre, close to Chassaing. The Islet of Kahouanne is part of Guadeloupe to the north of Basse-Terre, administratively belonging to Deshaies and 1.5 km from the coast to the northwest of the town.

The island is about 0.541 km² in area and is a protected site.[4] The island is uninhabited but in 2014 some sailors were shipwrecked there.[5]

Like its neighbor Tête à l'Anglais, it is home to an endemic species, the Anolis kahouannensis.
