Pointe aux Canonniers Interesting : Michelin's recommendations

This propitious site west of Grand Baie, ideal for spotting fugitive slaves and English invaders, was a military camp for the French settlers. Now a plush residential area, the peninsula boasts several hotels with a magnificent view of the islands to the north. The Hôtel Le Canonnier has preserved a lighthouse, built in 1855 on the site of an old French fort. Its beam of light continued to sweep across the sea until 1932.
