The township sits on the Northwestern coast of Basse-Terre Island. Deshaies covers an area of approximately 31.1 km2 with a population of about 4,383 people according to statistical data gathered in 2007. The township is known for having one of the best and deepest and naturally protected bays on the Caribbean coast.
