Voiliers de l’Océan has been building model ships for the tourist and export markets for more than 30 years. The Soap Shop produces refreshingly scented soaps while CIE Private Collection is a small-scale carpet factory. After lunch in Floreal, visitors will head towards Ganga Talao, a sacred place filled with a mystic aura and natural beauty. Chamarel is home to a number of attractions including a beautiful waterfall, the Seven Coloured Earth.

The glass works are interesting and have some really unusual pieces. Even if you only buy a small souvenir it is worth doing to assist this environmentally friendly company which relies on re-cycled glass for its raw product..
