Fodor's Expert Review Ilet de Pigeon
Elsewhere on Basse-Terre Nature Preserve/Wildlife Refuge
This tiny, rocky island a few hundred yards off the coast is the site of the Jacques Cousteau Underwater Park, the island's best scuba and snorkeling site. Although the reefs here are good, they don't rank among the top Caribbean dive spots. Several companies conduct diving trips to the reserve, and it's on the itinerary of some sailing and snorkeling trips.
