Cap Mechant

This place is called Cap Mechant wich could be translated as Nasty Cape. It is located on the most southern part of Reunion Island.


Its name goes back to the time when Reunion Island was under the influence of the French East India Company, during the 18th century. In that part of the island, the coast is really teared up as it is furiously hit by the heave, and this could be a real danger for every boat trying to reach the shore indeed. The place was a pirate’s lair and people say that there is still some treasures waiting to be found all around.


If you have ever gone to this spot, you have probably met the crazy resident of the place. She is an old lady that spend all her days on the parking lot and talks to anyone who comes close to her. She is kind of famous in Reunion Island and everbody knows her. She talks complete non sense about evil and demon in an crazy and super-fast way. It can be creepy as hell or really funny, depend on your personnality. Yours to decide
