The coastal road that winds between pristine beaches and rugged coastline is both beautiful and surprising. It’s wide lagoons scattered with islets and rocks are slightly darker due to their depth, turning the green waters into a luminous colour. A gentle breeze helps to reduce the summer heat and its clear waters are home to extraordinary flora and fauna, ideal for snorkelling or glass-bottom boat tours.
Grand-Gaube is a quiet little fishing village where traditional pirogue making practices are still alive, an interesting activity to discover during a walk through its streets lined with coconut trees and multipliants. The view of the northern islands, Coin de Mire, Ile Plate, Ile Ronde and Ile Serpent, as well as the ocean surrounding them, is breathtaking. Closer by and easily reached by boat, Bernache and Gabriel islands offer an enchanting interlude with wild coves and sandy beaches for a Robinson experience.
