Stunning location with great swimming. Good choice in local cafes offering typical tasty french cuisine. Easy to get to on the hop on hop off bus, the little train or the local bus. Well worth a visit.

Great apartment close to restaurants and shops and beach, buses to town, and easy walk to Anse Vata, fantastic balcony watching the sailing boats and the cruise liners coming in.

Baie des Citrons is a lovely sheltered beach, perfect for swimming and even has a few coral outcrops with tropical fish, including memos, if you have a mask and snorkel ( and can dive down to have a look.) It is popular for just sitting...More
