At the eastern tip of the Presqu'île du Caravelle are the ruins of this castle, once the home of the Dubuc de Rivery family, who owned the peninsula in the 18th century. According to legend, young Aimée Dubuc de Rivery was captured by Barbary pirates, sold to the Ottoman Empire, became a favorite of the sultan, and gave birth to a son.
You can park your car right after the turnoff for Résidence Oceane and walk the dirt road to the ruins. The castle still has a
skeleton of stone walls, but it is mostly rubble. Hikers go for the dramatic ocean views, raw nature, and birdlife, but for others, it might not be worth the price of admission.

there is not much to see. a couple of walls still stand. no roof. you can get a terrific view (one of the best on the island) including Dubac Castle, if you go on a slightly different trail nearby that takes you to a lighthouse.
