Fodor's Expert Review Presqu'île du Caravelle
Elsewhere North of Fort-de-France Park (National/State/Provincial)
Much of the Caravelle Peninsula, which juts 8 miles (13 km) into the Atlantic Ocean, is under the protection of the Regional Nature Reserve and offers places for trekking, swimming, and sailing. This is also the site of Anse-Spoutourne, an open-air sports and leisure center operated by the reserve. The town of Tartane has a popular surfing beach with brisk Atlantic breezes. Hotel La Caravelle is one of the better places to stay in this area.
