6 kilometres from the port on foot or youcan cycle and the plantation has a restaurant if you want to make use ofthose facilities.

Maketime to explore the granite rocks eroded by the sea and find a shady palm areafor some afternoon sun bathing and relaxation.
Grand Anse and Petite Anse are the othermain beaches.
You'll probably need to cycle here as it's about threekilometers from town.
The two beaches are separated by large rock formation and toget to Petite Anse you'll need to climb over the boulders.
