The GCSM is one of the Lesser Antilles’ biggest lagoons and is scattered with islets that are all just as fascinating. You will stop at the Pointe-à-Pitre market, go up the RivièreSalée, and discover the mangrove, its wildlife, its plants, the lagoon’s crystalline waters and white sand beaches on a 2x150-horsepower cigarette boat.
