Sainte-Anne (pronounced: /sɛ̃t‿an/) is a city in the southern part of Grande-Terre, considered by some[who?] to be one of the most touristy towns of Guadeloupe (with Le Gosier and Saint-François).[citation needed]

The commune turned decidedly towards tourism in the last 20 years, but still remains dependent on agriculture.
