Ilet Caret, Sainte Rose

4.1
#3 of 12 in Nature in Basse-Terre Island
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. Ilet Caret is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our world travel planner, Sainte Rose Edition.

  • Must rent a boat and do it in a Committee such as this avoid you the rum with the skippers of the speed boats as well as music, you start from the marina of throat and direction Island caret, you will cross the mangrove at your own pace, you'd take your job Spades e on l Island Carey and you can do snorkeling, then between island map and and STE rose a shipwreck to find her, and you can dive. Beware the caret, since the last Hurricane island has more trees and it is tiny. Predict CAP and umbrella.

  • We are out on tour with these people are far from being professionals a very arrogant Alan skipper sailing at full speed while eight children were on board the meal was mediocre l islet is far from paradise and we had to go with the force for our security because obviously nothing was as a rule... We still enjoy the beauty of Guadeloupe with real professionals at d other tours so if you value your family life were running xterm excursion

  • A beautiful little island with can be very soon just a memory because not more than 2 years ago most of the palm trees were up and we're many and now nothing left as the waters of the sea are increasing making this little paradise dissappear. Extremely beautiful place close to the coral reef in the Caribbean side of the Guadeloupe.
  • A slowly disappearing island to the shores of Guadeloupe. Look how green it was once, and compare it with its actual state. A tragedy.
  • Great place to paradise in the middle of the sea, rain and clouds on a small islet with its beautiful white sand

  • Small island in the process of disappearance because of the rising waters and samples of sand/coral of the tourists. Paradise Island close to the barrier reef Guadeloupe. Don't hesitate to do snorkeling, a lot of fish and coral in the area. However a lot of passages from tourist boats. Enjoy the island exists!

  • Difficult to do a rating. I put 5 stars for the emotion felt when approaching and we landed on the rest of this islet, is more than a bench of sand, a few strains of coconut trees still there to remind that there are a few months before!
