Daily life during a stay at VGP 1810.
After a good night’s sleep, thanks to the gentle sounds of the waves, and a hearty breakfast in the restaurant or brought to you room, you may well want to set out to discover one of the island’s most beautiful lagoons. In that case, there’s nothing to rival a trip, by pirogue for short trips, in the direction of the neighbouring islets: Ile aux Aigrettes and its nature reserve; Ile de la Passe where there are the remains of French fortifications; Fouquet Island, a listed site; Ilot Mariannes, a nature reserve with a superb sand bank; and the famous Ile aux Cerfs. Youngsters will particularly enjoy the Surcouf, a water taxi with on-board activities.
The village’s fascinating interactive museum will take you on a completely original journey through the island’s history and various cultures.
