Ilet du Gosier – A piece of heaven


You will find this charming islet in front of the Datcha beach in Gosier. You can reach it by taking the shuttle at the end of the pier by Tabarin beach. But you might as well rent a kayak or even swim to the islet, that’s how close it is to the cost! Take your mask and your snorkel and discover a large variety of tropical fishes: “demoiselle”, “sergent major”, “orphies”… You will also enjoy the charming lighthouse of the islet and of course its fine gold sand and turquoise waters… a real life paradise. Since 2003, it is under the protection of the « Conservatoire du Littoral » to assure its preservation.

This uninhabited islet offers an incredible view on the Datcha beach and Basse-Terre island, it features the « Au bord de la mer » restaurant where you can enjoy a good punch and a delicious « court-bouillon de poisson ». Ilet du Gosier is the guarantee of a fun day with your family, it is safe to go with your children.

Enjoy 🙂
