A visit to tiny La Passe almost feels like stepping back in time, so perfectly does it capture the image of a sleepy tropical port. Apart from a few trucks and taxis, very few motorised vehicles clog the streets. Men and women talk shop on the jetty while waiting for the ferry to arrive. Children ride bicycles on the tree-lined roads. Come Saturday night, most islanders head to the seafront for some serious dancing and drinking.

Check out the few souvenir shops near the jetty, sign up for a boat excursion or hire a bicycle and just peddle around a bit.
