A walk on the top of black lava cliffs to observe strange "trous souffleurs" (blowing holes).

My experience, Explo description: 

La Pointe au Sel is a little lava cape located 2 km south from Saint Leu. This place is a protected natural site.

You can make a little walk around the cape and observe the vestige of a former salt production site.

My personal recommendations: 

By the road, go 1-2km further South along the shore cliffs. From your car, you will see the strange "trous souffleurs", kind of geyser provoked by sea waves...

How getting there: 

Pointe au Sel is 2km south from Saint Leu.

A tip to eat: 

Have a little break at the museum scenic restaurant where you can taste local "créoles" specialities : Papaye "gratin" with shark or spadon slices, or a little glass of Rhum ?!

A tip to sleep: 

Bed and breakfast : Le Moutardier
