These Islands are part of the town of Bouillante, but are 1100 m away from the shore. Lunch will be served while sailing. The key attraction lies at the bottom of the sea, aside from its vegetation, primarily occupied by the Manchineels and Frangipani. The diversity of coral reefs and fish are among the highest in the Caribbean. Just by snorkeling in shallow waters you will find elkhorn corals, gorgonians, faviidae, parrot fish, molidae and butterflyfish.
