The 262-meter-high (860-foot-high) peak of Pic N’Gâ offers a panoramic view of the whole island. The ascent, accessible to anyone, takes around an hour, and is best done with decent footwear (i.e., not flip-flops). Especially if it’s a hot day, it’s a good idea to bring a hat, some water and a snack. Leave early in the morning to avoid the heat and to be back in time for a refreshing swim and lunch.
