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.

  • Great view from the top of the lighthouse on the lagoon and the coral reef, tour of the easy island with meeting of striped knits and protected terns; very nice site for snorkeling (snorkeling) with turtles, large fish... even seen dugongs. (evening) Don't hesitate to go to the barrier reef. Touristy site compared to other islands but we're not scrambling!
