The nature reserve of the peninsula of Caravelle classified in 1976, is a haven of peace which can be visited on foot or by boat …
It is a narrow strip of land 12 km long.
With its steep cliffs, its multitude of spikes and serrated bays (those of Galion, the Treasury, Tartane), its wild handles, its hills, its fauna and flora so special the peninsula of Caravelle offers an authentic face of the Martinique.
You will love this harmonious blend of sea and nature.
You can witness the fabulous sunsets going all the way to the Château Dubuc or even from the lighthouse where the circumference of the earth is clearly visible.
Venture to the small discrete beaches along the peninsula. You must take the small paths that cross the cane fields.
The National Forestry Office has created two marked trails from the village of Tartane.
The first will make you apprehend the ecosystem of the ‘mangrove’, a kind of lacustrine forest between land and marsh.
The other trail forms a loop of Tartane at the Weather Station via Caracoli Point and Dubuc Castle, ruins of a home of a famous privateer then rich sugar cane farmers built in the seventeenth century.
