Îlet Frégate

Islet in Le François
  • Frigate islet is an uninhabited islet. It is an islet protected by a biotope protection order since 2003. It is registered by the ministerial order of 28 July 2007. It is one of the islets classified as neither too degraded nor too preserved.

  • It owes its name to the nearby Habitation Frégate.

    The islet culminates at an altitude of 20 metres. It has a discontinuous vegetation cover made of grassy herbaceous plants, pear trees, mangroves. A rare tree is found there, the great Cosmaya with its scientific name Cratera Tapia.

    As for fauna, we meet sheep, anolis, wood lice and crickets.
    For birds: the black-tailed dove that lives on this islet because of the seeds of the "boi zotolan" on which it feeds.
