Ilet Caret, Sainte Rose
(3.9/5 based on 380+ reviews on the web)
Ilet Caret, a tiny island surrounded by crystal blue waters, preserves a protected coral reef full of marine life. The island gets its name from the Hawksbill Turtles that come to breed at certain times of the year. Soft white sand circles the beach, with palms trees scattered about. Snorkel in the colorful seabed overflowing with fish and shellfish. You can reach the island from numerous nearby destinations that run water taxi and tour services. Be sure to get your tour guide to take you through the mangroves on your way.

  • The Caret islet looks more like the pictures that you find on the internet, its surface has been drastically reduced and the coconut trees fell. Locals told us it was the exploitation of sand in the Bay which brings down the level of the island (it is not therefore the rising waters). This remains an incredible experience even if it is true that there are a lot of people. However, all visitors must think that it is the others who interfere.
