L'ÎLET SAINTE MARIE ET SON TOMBOLO SAINTE-MARIE
Boulevard Désir JOX Anse Madame (plage du bourg)
”LET SAINTE MARIE
An old port located across from the town, it is connected to the beach by a curious sandbar called Tombolo.
THE TOMBOLO: AN ODDITY OF NATURE
The Tombolo is a bar of sand linking ”let SAINTE MARIE to land. A natural phenomenon of the sea related to the action of the swells, tides and marine currents, it appears every year during the dry season called Lent (approximately from January to April). When the sandbar is dry, it is possible to reach the islet on foot. A managed hiking trail makes it possible to visit the islet's two summits and, with the help of a plaque identifying the highlights, to enjoy magnificent panoramic views.
