An interesting drive to get here and the parking is interesting. To see some of the trees as they really grow was very interesting. The ruins were not really interesting.

One of the best views on Mahe! It was pleasant and not cold when we visited (around 1 PM in May). We're lucky to have a local who pointed out the cinnamon trees (even broke some bark for us) and other local plants. The history behind the place is also very interesting.

Arriving by coach after recent rains, the going was rough underfoot with slippery steps, exposed tree roots and mud. However, there is a history to the place. Look up at the massive trees with wide girths. The viewpoint is impressive and it is cool amongst the foliage. Small souvenir stall at the lookout. The drive up Sans Souci road is... More

Even the drive up Sans Souci is amazing as the light through the foliage is stunning. There are some impressive trees on the pathway which leads to a spectacular view of the ocean and beaches below.

An interesting place to visit which has trees and plants with better labels on them than those in the Botanic Gardens in Victoria! You get a good insight into the functions of the Mission School and the role of slavery in this area of the world. Wonderful view from the verandah with a lady selling drinks, jewellry and snacks.

We came here and found it very interesting. The site is up a hill so it is very cool. It has information about it's history and about slavery.

There's not much to 'do' here, but don't let that put you off. Kids will love clambering through the trees, the atmosphere among the ruins of the mission is amazing, and the view from the top of the hill overlooking the bay is one of the best on Mahe.

choice a nice sunny day to go there for a better view, might be a little cold at time, so bring along a sweater, no toilet or restaurant in the area, so bring snacks for kids and pipi before leaving the hotel. Good view worth the trip.
