    a perfectly picturesque island that was sadly one of the biggest slave trading points in africa for more than 300 years. return trip on the ferry is 500 francs and you have to pay 1000 tax & entry.

    Please refrain to speak loudly, smoke and drink in this place of memories (Maison des Esclaves) where people were enslaved and sent overseas by thousands. This is not Disneyland (or go back home !).
