An air of la dolce vita hangs over Saint-Leu all year round. This charming little town on the edge of the lagoon is popular with families, thanks to its beach protected by the coral reef; a siesta beneath the filaos is tempting, as music drifts out of the kiosks. If you want to learn more about the place, take your pick from three of the island's major museums, or join the pilgrimage to Notre-Dame-de-la-Salette, which is a reminder that the cholera epidemic took no victims here.
