Guy and charming mood will then take you to discover the island’s artisan work through the visit of a syrup factory or kassaverie (depending on their open days). Your guide will take you to the famous Murat and its botanical garden with renowned medicinal plants, all the while telling you stories and anecdotes about his beloved island. Your guide will passionately explain all of the virtues and possible uses of these plants, which have come from Africa, in detail. You will fall in love with so much knowledge and enthusiasm.

You will continue your journey up to the Gueule-Grand-Gouffre cliff. Magnificent! You will finally get a break.
