French Antilles – Guadeloupe | Îlet Gosier

An island of an island… Gosier Island is just a stone’s throw away from the ‘continent’ of Guadeloupe.  If you want to escape the rather busy beach of Le Gosier on the shoreside , this is your call.

A small unstable fishing boat ferries passengers back and forth to the little island. The crossing is quick and cheap. You arrive at an island with a history. A 900-year-old skeleton of an amerindian woman was found near the lighthouse. It’s the oldest ever found.

The island is perfect for snorkeling, sunbathing and dolce far niente. And provided this pharophile with a good excuse to visit yet another lighthouse.
