The North in detail


The best places to stay – and your best chance of seeing the sea from your room – tend to be along the coast in Trou aux Biches, Mont Choisy, Pointe aux Cannoniers or Pereybère. Luxury retreats are a speciality of Grand Gaube – which is wonderfully removed from it all – and to a lesser extent Cap Malheureux. Pamplemousses has no accommodation to speak of and is best visited as a day trip.
