Dining on Fregate Island is a wonderful gastronomic experience. There are two restaurants serving innovative cuisine combining international and Creole influences and prepared using fresh ingredients from the island. Enjoy beach barbecues and romantic meals in a tree house high up in a banyan tree or choose your own ingredients and dine in the plantation. The sashimi picnic on a boat is a must.

The island also offers exceptional diving and deep-sea fishing opportunities.
