Island Tips


Cap Malheureux public beach

The winding coastal road from Grand Baie, passing by Péreybère will bring you to Cap Malheureux, a small fishing village found on the Northern tip of the island, where life starts at 4am for the fishermen.

From this vintage point, you have beautiful views of the three islets: Flat Island, Round Island and Gunner's Quoin. On site, this picturesque red-roofed chapel stands out from the green grassy patch and the emerald blue of the sea as backdrop.

Cap Malheureux is worth a detour, not only for the peaceful surroundings and simple life but more so because it has been the landing site for the British troops as they seized the island from the French in 1810.
