Our coconut workshop

‘The coconut tree, the jewel of the tropics’

Visit our coconut plantation located in the heart of a magnificent tropical garden and discover all the secrets of the coconut tree (its origin, its culture, etc.) and the many uses of its fruit, the coconut:

  • Culinary use (water, nuts, virgin oil, milk, sugar, etc.)       
  • Medicinal use (recipe of yesteryear)
  • Cosmetic use (soap, massage oil)
  • Industrial use (brushes, rope, charcoal, etc.)
  • Artisanal use (shell handicrafts, palm weaving, etc.)

 Enjoy a tasting platter:

  •  Coconut sugar and syrup made from the sap of coconut blossoms (with a very low glycaemic index, coconut sugar is considered the caviar of sugar)
  • Virgin coconut oil obtained by cold pressing the coconut (an edible oil with many beneficial properties)
  • Fresh coconut water (a highly isotonic drink and the only water that is naturally sterile)
