Island Nature / Park
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.
