La Cambuse Beach

La Cambuse is the place to enjoy a day in nature away from everything, in a setting that lets you admire how the island was before Hotel’s development. Being so close to the south, the coral reef enjoys a break that allows a stronger current to come in, so take a dip and enjoy the sway of the noble waves. For a different experience, take your hiking shoes and explore the right side of the beach, crossing rocks and bushes to find a beautiful trail leading to Le Bouchon.

This natural treasure is one of the last unspoiled beaches left, yet, a mega-tourism project is getting all the green lights to go ahead. Should this “development” materialize, it will result in an immense ecological loss affecting its white sand dunes, the stretch of greenery that still remains and the fish and corals of the Marine Park surrounding the beach.

The alternative? Support eco-conscious travel and accommodation services. Crash with locals and in guest houses, non-invasive alternatives that offer a deeper interaction with the local community while creating quality jobs. For more info and to support making this place a better world, visit Aret Kokin Nu Laplaz (Stop stealing our beach).
