Le Jardin du Roi

Up in the steep hills of Anse Royale on Mahé, and a little hard to find is a place that has some magic, especially on a hazy and maybe rainy day when most tourists are looking for a bad-weather-program. The Jardin du Roi is a spice garden - a path through the area with lots of plants that are well labelled. A downside, however, is that there are also a few animals kept in tiny cages. The view from up there is a really nice one and you can get some good food in the restaurant.
