I’ve never much paid any real attention to the sights en route to Ilet-Oscar, the tiny islet situated off the Atlantic coast of Martinique where you can live a Robinson Crusoe-like rustic private island getaway for less than $200 per-night. I guess I’ve always been too excited about what’s to come.
Previous visits had long informed my senses of Oscar’s laid-back wonder, its utter peace, serenity, and sublime Planteur’s Punch.
They’d also informed my common sense for keeping my camera equipment high and dry. As noted previously, Ilet-Oscar and its neighboring sister islets combine with a long coral reef system to keep the waters here calm by Atlantic coast standards.
Thankfully, this wasn’t the case on my last visit in late-2015.
The sea was as calm as I’d ever seen it, giving me license to capture a few seascapes along the way.
