Nothing seems indeed to be able to disturb the calm atmosphere which reigns on the island, nor to modify the authenticity and the benevolent reception of its inhabitants.

Only the South coast is inhabited. The only straight road links Beauséjour, the main town, to the different districts, Les Galets, Le Souffleur and Baie-Mahault.
