Cap La Houssaye, Saint-Paul

4.5
#4 of 13 in Outdoors in Saint-Paul
The combination of the sea, cliffs, and savannah gives the landscape of Cap La Houssaye a unique quality. Dominated by a vast, open space, the cape also features cliffs surrounded by ravines, which you'll drive through if coming by car. Black basalt rocks and a few scattered trees punctuate the undulating grass, which changes color with the season. Although locals tend to regard the savannah as a wasteland, they nevertheless come here to walk, play soccer, or simply relax. Take care in this fragile natural area and leave no trace of your visit. With our online itinerary creator, Saint-Paul attractions like Cap La Houssaye can be center stage of your vacation plans, and you can find out about other attractions like it, unlike it, near it, and miles away.

  • This is easily accessible from the main road, the views are wonderful and if you climb down there is at least one pool you can swim in. You can even take a picnic to have above the rocks afterwards.  more »
  • The cutting of the coast at this place is beautiful and the sunset splendid. We walk on ancient lava flows that have fallen into the sea and many fishermen come in the evening.

  • Great cap! departure for hikes in the savanna or on a fishing trip.

  • Nice observation deck with possibility of the water to go. There is a bathing prohibition sign which is true but only westward. At least have met us East divers and anglers. There is a small free parking lot and trails to the sea. To eat and drink, there is nothing to buy.
