L'Ilot - The Islet

To the North East end of the Beau Vallon Bay, this tiny and picturesque granit island, with 2 coconut trees on top of it, hosts a wealth of marine life in the surrounding waters. Sheer drops have eroded into massive ravines framed by big granit boulders. The walls are covered with soft coral where you can find lots of crayfish and big eyes. Turtles, reef sharks and sometimes whale-sharks swim by so keep an eye out... Great site for night dives when the weather conditions are right.
