Morne Larcher is a small extinct volcano which dominates the bay with 478 m of altitude. It is a natural site partly classified because of its particular landscape. On the top of Morne Larcher is a small savanna, scattered with mango and guava trees.

The excursion Anse Cafard-Petite Anse (3h) climbs Morne Larcher (1h30) through xerophytic forest made up of ti baume and wood of India.
