Praslin's second-largest village stretches either side of the discreet Monument of Independence, which is a de facto village square. Just next to it is the small market, which is only really disturbed from its slumber with the return of the fishing boats. If you can, come to Grand'Anse on a Sunday morning, when the locals emerge from mass in their Sunday best and linger to chat in the shade or do some shopping before heading to the beach for a picnic with their families.
