Ilet Caret, Sainte Rose

#4 of 8 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.

    A wild and divine ideal site to spend the morning, eat there and enjoy the views, enjoy the water and the little people!

    Essential time on Guadeloupe so much that can still be! The Caret islet will disappear one day because of the rise of the sea, it has already lost all of its palm trees. We chose the Marie-Laure team for this day and we have not regretted it! She had built a shelter "garbet" on the islet which is reserved (otherwise umbrellas!). By the jokes and jokes of Paul, his breakfast and his multiple punches, what a day of crazy laugh! Visit in the afternoon of the mangrove. A great memory!

    Stop at the ride jet - ski, small islet where swimming is pleasant (sea side of the Caribbean). Welcome stopover during the ballad but otherwise not great interest. The size of the islet is quickly reduced by the nibbling of the sea.
