The plateau area has a combination of residential dwellings and guest houses with few hotels. The ‘Veuve Reserve’ is a sanctuary named after the endemic birds which inhabit the area.
A visit to the timeless L’Union Estate is an absolute must, where the old agricultural processing method is preserved, such as the traditional copra mill, built to extract virgin coconut oil following the laborious de-husking of the coconut and extraction of the flesh from the shell.
