The East Wild
The Montagne Bambous chain frontiers the east coast. At sea level, it unwinds the quiet bays where Grande riviere sud est, the longest river on the island, mouths with the sea. The coastal villages there bear such vivid names like ‘Bois des Amourettes’ or ‘Quatre Soeurs et Deux Frères’. Further down you’ll find ‘Trou d`Eau Douce’, a beautiful fishermen’s village where creole languor and tourism mix tastefully. From there you can access Ile aux cerfs, a rare tropical gem cushioned in its mangrove shield.

On this coast, the Touessrok and the Saint geran, unclassable hotels receiving princes and stars of the showbuisness, proudly draw their silhouette on two peninsulas. Several more accessible hotels like Long Beach, Hôtel Ambre, The Residence etc all drop their feet on the beach.

In the background,several small villages with mixed colours contribute to the local economy with their plantations, sugar cane fields and watercress which develop in the clear waters of the brooks. At dusk, the east bathes in twilight as the sun sets on the other side of the island.
