To get to trou d'argent you need to walk a good distance through a national park. Once there the scenery is stunning and the waves are worth the walk. No facilities and rather isolated for singles but again worth the visit.

Visited the place on our first day. Snorkeled and the sea is amazingly beautiful. It is a must see place and don’t forget your snorkeling gears as the sea is untouched with a lot of fish and sea life.

Awesome beach. Visit is a must. Takes 1 hour hike through cliffs and vegetation to reach. Most easily reached through St Francois Beach

Definitely worth a visit and grab a meal at Tekoma. The food is really good. We spent the afternoon here and beach is very clean and peaceful. I highly recommend it.

Luckily there were no people and we got to enjoy the beach and the scenery practically alone. If you love drones, this is the perfect place to get some amazing videos.

Yes, no problem! Just wear good shoes as the rocks can be a bit jagged and sharp.
