Trou Aux Cerfs

The extinct volcano is 85 metres deep with a diameter of 200 metres and offers an exceptional view of the island. The site is also a historical spot. Freed slaves had chosen it to cultivate the land.
It has a superb view of Black River mountain ranges and the sea lining the horizon. Plaines Champagne is part of a natural reserve area which still contains some wildlife.
