The island is home to many estates and sugar plantations, and many still seem straight out the 18th and 19th centuries. Visitors can get a sense of the island’s unique style and architecture while taking in the 400-acre La Sikwi Sugar Mill plantation, which also includes a museum, theater and 40-foot waterwheel. The Morne Coubaril Estate also includes a worker’s village, sugar mill, and cocoa houses that have been meticulously preserved and will allow guests to feel like they’ve been brought back in time to another age.Other historical buildings of the sugar age can be seen at the Fond d’Or Nature Historic Park, and the nearby Fond Doux Estate, which remains a Caribbean-style working plantation. Here you can take in the sights of what the plantations were, and still are, as well as the tastes with some of the local rum punch.
