Rotours Canal

Other bodies of water - Morne-A-l'Eau

The Rotours Canal, fruit of the labors of several hundred slaves and freemen, was dug during the early years of the 19th century (1826-1830). It begins at the landing pier and ends 5 km. away in Pointe à Feuille. The canal plays a vital economic role here; in fact, its opening coincided with the town’s early development. You can wander along its banks, which are lined with mangroves and prairies on either side, as far as the canal’s mouth, where it flows into the Grand Cul-de-Sac Marin.
