Must see · Island · Nature / Park
Unspoiled by human inhabitance, Ilet du Gosier invites you to get away from the hustle and bustle of tourism. The island is a tropical oasis just a short boat ride from the town, in fact, strong swimmers can try and reach it without any aid. It is roughly 1 km (0.6 mi) long and features clear water and soft white sand. Shallow water provides safe swimming conditions, and trees lining the sand create an ample amount of shade. You'll find a white-brick masonry lighthouse on the south end of the island which stands 21 m (68 ft) tall and looks over the Caribbean Sea.

  • This small island is very beautiful. shadow water which suits small kids. there is no beach chair or umbrella on the beach which gives a bit of the wild feeling. there is a boat service very close to....  more »
  • Overrated. Very very crowded!!! Hard to find a decent square meter on the beach. 3/4 of the island is rocky and impracticable for swimming. Otherwise it’s a spectacular sand and coral pieces into the sea. It worth maybe one hour visit.
  • I think it is quite overrated. Forget the idea of an exclusive paradise island. There are a lot of people and the beach is quite small (you are almost walking onto each other to reach the sea). The first boat (9am) was 45 minutes late and the queue on the pier was obviously really long.
