Mushiroze Walkway

The 200m-long Mushiroze walkway was built by the sea amid a landscape of remarkable rock formations. These large blocks of rock, shaped by the tides, look like contemporary works of art. The sculptures can be "interpreted" according to your own imagination: fish, tortoise, chair or staircase... A haphazard setting that is the result of the granite floor pulling up under the effects of tectonic moving, a rare phenomenon on the coasts of these islands that are primarily covered with coral.
