Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    Interesting place, an old sugarcane plantatiuon long since fallen into disrepair, but reinvented as a museum and well worth a look.

    Visitors to Marie-Galante can't help being impressed by the fields of sugar cane which cover the island and are the main agricultural product. The harvested sugar cane can be turned in to three main commercial products: rum, sugar and syrup used as a sweetener or topping. The syrup produced by Les Délices de Siblet is unique and said to be the very best produced on the island.
    While the "official" address of the factory is in Grand Bourg it is actually only about five kilometers south of the town of St Louis on the right hand side of highway N9 as you are driving towards Grand Bourg, immediately after the sign marked "Section Siblet."
    The low ranch house in front of the factory serves as the home of the family of Patrick Maurin. Pull in to the parking lot and walk over to the factory where, providing there are not too many other visitors, one of the members of the family will explain to you in French how the cane is harvested from the fields in back, processed and bottled to become the "Sirop de Batterie." The finished product is available for purchase in either a one liter (€7) or half liter (€4) bottle which they will package for you. I have used it to sweeten my yogurt, on top of ice cream and to make tropical drinks.
    When you're finished here drive another five kilometers south and follow the signs to the Distillerie Poisson and see how sugar cane is turned in to rum

    One of many lovely beaches, but busier than most, probably because it's near the prt and has showers and (very basic) changing facilities.

    The owner explained all about the distillerie. He had to use water and fire.

    We learned a lot from him.

    However, I don't drink.

    Still I enjoyed what I learned.

    Worthwhile to see!

    Really nice things for souvenirs. T shirts, local maps, beach bags, etc. I really like the beach towels made of soft cotton from Tunisia with a logo of Marie Galante. A little pricey at 30 Euros. but nice stuff, not your usual junk.
