A picturesque fishing village with a smattering of traditional colourful houses: this is Le Carbet, where Christopher Columbus is said to have moored in 1502. Paul Gauguin also stayed here in 1887. Don't miss the old indoor market on Place Jules Grévy, which houses a small history and sea gallery that looks back over the history of the North Caribbean, as well as the church, Église St Jacques (1776) with its handsome Baroque facade. South of the town (via the N 2), in the Le Coin neighbourhood, you can admire well-preserved characteristic painted wooden Creole huts.
