On the other side of Anse Marcel, to the north of the island, Petites Cayes is a superb deserted beach frequented by nature lovers and surfers who like to call it “Wilderness.” You have to earn access to this wild paradise. It can only be explored on foot, via the Froussards trail which is the last intact coastal forest on the island. Bring sneakers and a bottle of water for this 30-minute hike, either from Anse Marcel or from Cul-de-Sac (it’ll take more than 2 hours if you want to do the whole trail). Since the site is within the Nature Reserve, it's forbidden to take cuttings. You can observe the famous moon cactus from the path. You’ll see a beach of sea-polished corals if you take the stretch of path leading from Cul-de-Sac, before reaching Petites Cayes.
