Sweet Spots: Étang de la Baie Lucas

This really is the most scenic pond on the island, and now there’s an observation platform that makes it that much easier to enjoy. If you have a friend visiting the island and you don’t take them here, you aren’t doing your job and you’re not a good friend.

Basically, this is a gorgeous spot and the best spot to take photos of birds surrounded by beautiful scenery, including mangroves, huge boulders and cactus-filled scrubland. The observation platform is constructed as a bird blind, so it is great for seeing birds without disturbing them. If the birds to fly off to the other side of the pond when you arrive, hang tight for a few minutes and they should come back. Green herons are usually up to various shenanigans on either side of the platform.
