The third, and also the last village on La Desirade after Beauséjour and Le Souffleur is the very, very, very small village Baie Mahault. Over here not more then 100 people should be living, and it's understandable that it is not very popular: this is really the end of the world. After Baie Mahault the desert of the island starts and you won't see another living soul.
The village is small, but special as well. The number of houses does not exceed 25 and the small piece of land at the coast is used for a bizarre combination of things: it's a cemetary, a fishing harbour, the beach and the place where the goats hang out at the same time. And, from here you still have a great view of the mountainrange at the northside of the road.
Another interesting thing here is the fact that you clearly see the landscape changing towards the desert that lying just east from here. The trees are getting small, the grass dryer and the cacti more numerous. And a great thing: the iguana's start showing up everywhere here. La Désirade is famous for these small dinosaurs and in Baie Mahault I saw at least 5 of them, and one of them was a friendly one who didn't mind me taking pictures at all!
Address: Baie Mahault, La Désirade
