Welcome to Presqu’île de Caravelle
The attractive 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 on to Baie du Galion. On the northern side of the peninsula are a couple of protected beaches, including some spots favored by surfers. With several superb restaurants, a very atmospheric colonial ruin and some excellent walking, it's surprising that there's not as much tourism here as in other parts of the island. Most people visit on a day trip by hire car.
