Protruding out towards the ocean and nestled among the mangrove tress, a holiday to La Gaulette strikes a balance traditional fishing village and a tourist-friendly surfing spot.
Change things up with a short trip to La Vanille Nature Park in Riviere des Anguilles (about 56 minutes away). And it doesn't end there: explore the striking landscape at Seven Colored Earths, find your balance on the water with some of the best stand-up paddleboarding in the area, stroll through Black River Gorges National Park, and examine the collection at Curious Corner of Chamarel.
