Welcome to Presqu’île de Caravelle
The wonderful Presqu'île de Caravelle is a little-visited peninsula with some gorgeous stretches of beach and a wild, untamed feel. A gently twisting road with spectacular views runs through sugarcane fields to the charming main village of Tartane, and then on to Baie du Galion. On the north side of the peninsula are a couple of protected beaches, including some spots favored by surfers. With several superb restaurants and hotels, a very atmospheric colonial ruin and some excellent walking, it's surprising that there's so little tourism here. This is, of course, all the more reason not to miss it.
