Getting There & Away
From St-Benoît a scenic road (the RN3) cuts across the Plaine-des-Palmistes to St-Pierre and St-Louis on the far side of the island. Alternatively, you can continue south along the coast road, passing through Ste-Anne, Ste-Rose, St-Philippe and St-Joseph to reach St-Pierre.
St-Benoît is a major transport hub. Bus services to and from St-Denis run approximately every half-hour (€2, 1¼ hours). There are also two services linking St-Benoît and St-Pierre: line S2 (€2, two hours) follows the RN3 over the Plaine-des-Palmistes; line S1 (€2, 2½ hours) takes the coast road via St-Philippe, St-Joseph and Manapany-les-Bains.
