This spectacular island is located on the South West coast. The Bénitiers Island therefore probably owes its name to the clamshell-shaped Crystal Rock which welcomes visitors before they reach the actual island.It is also the right occasion for a snorkeling session with the majestic Morne Brabant in the background. It is also where the famous Crustal Rock is located.

A day spent at the Ile aux Bénitiers is undeniably relaxing.
