Drinking & Nightlife

Noticeably quieter than the scene in Grand Baie or Flic en Flac, the communities of Black River (Rivière Noire) prefer house parties to loud club nights. Still, there are a couple of places to go in the evening, and many of the area's restaurants, such as Hidden Garden or La Bonne Chute, have a great after-hours vibe. Do keep in mind, though, that Flic en Flac is only a 15- to 25-minute taxi ride up the coast.
