Beautiful beach and crystal clear lagoon but far too many people when cruise ships come for day trips/excursions. They come 3 times a week. It ruins the peaceful and reclusive atmosphere of the place.
The ferry was not working due to maintenance works. The planes were not flying due to social strike (only advises on the day). Had booked hotel for 2 days but had to miss first day due to no way of getting to the island. (Therefore book extra accomodation in our cosy) Cruise ship was in the same time - very crowded. Only way to get anywhere is by expensive shuttles. Not much athmosphere from locals. Island is beautiful though.
The Ku-Bugny Restaurant was very good. The beautiful beaches and the Crystal clear Waters make it a great spot for snorkeling. I particularly enjoyed the day-trip to "piscine naturelle", for wich I would recommand the optional "pirogue" trip through the impresive oro's bay
Good location as a starting point for explorations - Kuto beach is lovely and you can walk from there to the next beach or up Pic N'ga. The hotel had a great range of excursions that meant we could see other parts of the island without needing a car.
What a spot! Clear turquoise water, never too crowded, and breathtakingly beautiful. The restaurant at the nearby resort Oure Tera was far superior (both for food and cocktails!) as were their facilities and staff. Oure Tera also has coral reef and beautiful sea kayaking opportunities, but possibly a bit pricier than Hotel Kou Bugny. However, as they're so near to each other, you can't really go wrong at either place!
There is nothing at Kuto apart from a few houses and the remains of the French penal colony from the 1800s. But the location proves its worth because Kuto is at the end of two beautiful bays that diverge from a narrow neck of land. In both bays at Kuto you can snorkel straight off the beach over sea grass and coral that is teeming with fish of all sizes, many elusive turtles, and occasional sea snakes and big fish like Spanish Mackerel. Some of the coral doesn’t look pristine and there are some beds of broken, dead coral, but most of the reefs appear to be very healthy. The only disadvantage of the fine white sand is that the near shore water can be quite murky, swimming out into the deeper water generally proved to be worthwhile for better visibility.
