Ruins in Paradise


Even 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 old remaining structures and visit ruins left from the times of French prison settlement from more than 100 years ago. Remnants of a prison compound covered by tropical vegetation, the water tower, the old convent, the final resting place of the deportees, all reminders of a distant past slowly reclaimed by nature. At the end of your tour visit “Chez Lylone”, land returned to the islanders after the end of the penal colony era. Here, enjoy some free time, visiting their family beach and tropical garden.
