One of the most beautiful beaches of Marie Galante and of the French Caribbean at all, a 5 minutes ride by car, and a 20 minutes walk from Villa Maloya. This beach is a must for Kite-surfers since it is protected by a coral reef and exposed to the strong tropical trade winds.
At a 15 minutes walk from the house (couple of minutes by car) you will find food shops, a place where local fishermen sell their catch, a pharmacist and a physician. During the mass on Sunday, the village church, opened to the trade winds, welcomes the elegantly dressed faithfuls.
A 10 minutes walk will lead you to this wild Atlantic landscape where huge waves batter the coast line. This is a renowned spot for confirmed surfers. The sandy spots on the coast line are a refuge for sea turtles who lay their eggs at night. A trek path will allow you to explore the cliffs, see Sentier des Galeries.
15 minutes away by car, you will enjoy visiting this genuine distillery producing one of the best rhums of the French west indies. You will have the opportunity to sample the different rhums locally produced, and bring back home your preferred ones at very competitive prices. Other notorious distilleries can be visited on the island, producing among the best rhums of the Caribbean.
5 minutes away by car, you will discover a sandy beach totally sheltered from the big waves by a coral reef. The lagoon is shallow enough for swimming and is a fish nursery. Ideal for scuba diving.
