Discover Petite Terre - Lake Dziani Mayotte

The site you should not miss on Petite Terre is Lake Dziani. This crater-lake, located in the heart of the island, is very easily reached. The road takes you nearly directly to its bank; it is only a few minutes' walk until you can stand right next to this large expanse of emerald water. Resist the temptation to go down to the bottom of the crater, the water is sulphurous, thus putrid and it is swarming with gnats. Walk along the path surrounding the lake instead, you will have a beautiful point of view both of the crater and of the nearby lagoon.
