Grove of seagrapes
Anse Bois d'Inde
Case en gaulette
Here the 'case' has been converted for the sale of local produce.
Turn left (Point 3) on a trail which winds through the forest (notice the red gum and Savonnette trees) and reach an intersection with the East Coast trail.
Turn left (Point 4) and reach Anse Piton. To the left, the trail goes back up a ravine (be careful, steep path). Then continue straight on, along a track through a forest of acacias.
The path opens on to a meadow (Point 5): turn your back to the meadow by taking a right-angled turn to the right and take the path which climbs through the undergrowth for a few metres then, keeping the same direction, crosses the meadows and the savannah (notice a pond and the hollow tower of a ruined mill). Reach a junction on a bend beside the Pointe Cavalle. Fork right (Point 6). At Anse Raquette, bear right to go along the coast. The path turns sharply to the left (copses), then passes a pool on the left.
Turn right (Point 7) and walk along the fields for 400 m. Descend to Anse Ballet (viewpoint; do not go near the edge). Go down the valley on the left, taking a stony trail through the undergrowth, and turn right in the ravine. The trail climbs back up on the opposite side (steep slope). At the junction (Point 8), turn right in the direction of Anse Bois d'Inde. Continue along the coastline to the path which leads to Caye Plate. At the parking area, go straight on.
When you reach the crossing for Anse du Coq; take the path on the left and return to the road.
Follow this to the right, passing the des Coqs residences, then reach the Chapelle Sainte-Thérèse by a trail to the left.
Straight walk: leave a second vehicle at the Chapelle Sainte-Thérèse (arrival).
