  • Warm welcome from Richard on the catamaran with hot drinks. Direction the islands of salvation after 1 h of crossing. On-site tour by catamaran to the island of the devil and the island St. Joseph. Then, we are deposited on the Royal island for three hours to walk through the trails and the history of labor. Many remains are present and some of them rehabilitated. Return the midi on the catamaran for the picnic or for those that want it, lunch at the restaurant of the island. TI punch and planter to begin the meal and for healthy digestion, swimming in a beautiful and hot water. The afternoon is devoted to the visit of the island St. Joseph. For some it will be to swim the catamaran to the island. It was great. A beautiful trip.

  • It is a beautiful island where we could meet the monkeys who ate us in hand, as well as extraordinary landscapes. I highly recommend.

  • Loaded history but 80% in ruins. I appreciate especially go for relaxation than for labour. The Islands are living on 2 days because nothing better that evening when she empties of people in town for the day. The rooms offered at the hostel below the restaurant are nice. Mandatory service = room + meal (damage), the room alone is not available. That said it is a good value for money in a relationship (the room is cheap if you count 20 per meal and €10 for breakfast, because for 2 pax are included in the price in all 6 meals and 2 breakfast), however becomes expensive when it is accompanied by a small piece of 3 years because the price rises for an extra bed which is other than a mattress on the floor and a few forks subconsciously during the meal. The presence of competition hotel / catering would be good I think.
