There’s no ferry here. Just a group of eager fishermen happy to take you on the minute-long journey to one of the greatest little beaches in Guadeloupe. 

This is Ilet du Gosier, a sandy islet off the coast of Guadeloupe’s most popular tourist town, Gosier, and another universe entirely.

It’s just off the coast of Gosier.

The little island is covered in swaying palm trees; the snorkeling is fantastic, and its offshore setting means you’ll never feel crowded. 

And while the beach here is phenomenal, there’s another major reason to come here: the marvelous Ti’ Robinson.

At this tiny beach bar, you can enjoy a ti’ punch and fresh snapper under the cover of the palms, conjuring up every Caribbean castaway fantasy in an ode to Crusoe himself. 

It’s your own private paradise, the perfect beach day in the French Caribbean.
