You'll enjoy a bit of beach vacationing at Plage de La Saline les Bains and Plage de Trou d'Eau. Take a break from the city and head to Scuba & Snorkeling and La Maison du Coco. Step out of Saint-Leu to go to Saint-Pierre and see Canyoning & Rappelling Tours, which is approximately 32 minutes away.
