Fort Dauphin has a moderate climate, slightly warm almost all year long, except between June and September, when it is a little colder. But these are the months when you are most likely to encounter humpback whales and dolphins roaming the Fake Bay of Galleons.
The ascent of Peak Saint Louis can be done via two footpaths. The first one starts from the SIFOR plant, a sisal processing plant. It is the shortest route to the summit. It takes about 1 hour and a half to complete. The second trail starts from Marillac. It is advisable to wear trousers on this route to avoid scratching your legs.
At this flagship destination for holiday-makers, several luxury hotel complexes have been built, including Berenty Lodge, Camp Pirate and Kaleta Hotel. But it is always possible to camp at Fort Dauphin to enjoy an ambiance closer to the heart of nature.
Cocobeach, Le Zay and Le Bateau Restaurant offer local specialities including seafood. To be recommended.
