This uninhabited island is located just off of Guadeloupe and is part of the French West Indies. It’s located in the island chain referred to as The Saintes. 
There is a nice beach and plenty of well maintained mooring balls
and an anchorage that has an unobscured view of the sunsets.  

 The beach has a Bar-B-Que area and shady picnic tables, but the only way to get here is by boat. So, the island is usually pretty quiet and we usually had it all to ourselves.  

 Hiking is excellent on the island and we took a couple of hours to explore ever nook and cranny. 

Do you see Sail Pending?

We ended up spending 5 days total at this island. It was a great place to decompress and relax and it was still close to shopping and fresh baguettes (wink). 

We would enjoy spending more time here too, but we have to keep moving South to get below (or near) 10 degrees North Latitude before “H” season starts. Next stop, the island country of Dominica!!!
