Even an island paradise has its dark secrets from the turmoil of history. Your local guide will reveal this hidden past as you discover some of the oldest remaining structures and visit over a hundred-year-old ruins left from when the site housed a French prison settlement. Remnants of the prison compound covered by tropical vegetation, the water tower, old church and convent and the final resting place of several deportees, all serve as reminders of a distant past slowly being reclaimed by nature. At the end of your tour, visit “Chez Lylone”, land returned to the family of islanders after the end of the prison era and enjoy some free time on the beautiful private beach and among the lush beautiful gardens.

NOTES

  • To make your day as enjoyable as possible, please wear comfortable flat-soled shoes, clothing suited to the weather conditions, a hat and SPF30+ or higher factor sunscreen. Make sure to bring bottled water and insect repellent.
  • We recommend the use of protective UV clothing and reef-friendly sunscreen to help protect the environment and reef systems (available in the onboard shops).
  • Guests must have good mobility to be able to get in and out of bus.
