The Red Roof chapel in Cap Malheureux

Whatever your religion, don’t miss out on the exquisite Notre-Dame-Auxiliatrice Church in Cap Malheureux! The red roof church is set against the backdrop of the turquoise lagoon and Coin de Mire Island… a picture-perfect setting worth a visit!

The church can be visited and is famous for its surprising basalt altar and stoup.

For those who might be tempted to participate in the service, masses are held on Saturdays at 6 pm and Sundays at 9.30 am. The Church is not very big, so do not hesitate to come early to secure a seat inside.

Feel free to stroll around and rejoice in the shade of a huge Banyan, with impressive visible roots.

Our tips for a memorable visit

We advise you to go to Cap Malheureux at the end of the day, ideally at sunset to bask in an exceptional light.

If you have the opportunity to come between October and December, the flamboyant flowers contribute to an even more spectacular scenery.
