The Labourdonnais Orchards are like an unbelievable oasis of scented bounty where one's hardly needed. This land is fertile enough to support anything this orchard would seem to demonstrate – which is surely a bit unfair considering it's so close to such an idyllic coastline. Coconuts, paw paws, guavas, passionfruits, lychees, bananas, and more sprout and hang from trees and off bushes in the orchards of this plantation, complete with beautiful, old colonial house with chapel. It's free entry and you can hire a bike to get around if you'd prefer – they're going to get something out of you for a juice or preserve, there's no way you can leave empty handed or empty bellied.
