Bonnet Carré is 262 steps long and lies in a small bay at the west side of North Island. Large granite rocks divide this very fine sand beach from Grand Anse and during low tide the two beaches join. On the south side the beach ends with a small granite mountain. Bonnet Carré is the French name for the Barringtonia Asiatica (Fish Poison Tree). This tree has very large leaves and feathery flowers and can only be found along this beach. Bonnet Carré is also sheltered by coconut palms and has a thick tropical palm forest in the background. Due to its intimate setting, the only resort on the island has named it Honeymoon Beach.
