St Philippe, gateway to the rugged south, is a peaceful village that seemed like a sleepy place until the nearby volcano erupted in 1986. The inhabitants have continued making their traditional screw pine handicrafts and growing vanilla and sugarcane. The town is also known for its superb primary forest - the island's largest nature reserve boasts a variety of tropical trees that stretch from the shore up to the volcano.
