The first metal lighthouse constructed in France, Amedee Lighthouse Island sits inside a World Heritage-listed lagoon. The island features white-sand beaches and teal-blue waters and lures snorkelers and swimmers with its coral reefs, where tropical fish, turtles, and starfish await.

  • An island quite far but common, and for good reason. The omnipresence of knits, the clarity of the water, the wealth of the Fund, bowls perfect so that children are floundering, everything is perfect on this island...
