Déva hills and Poé beach

The Domaine de Déva, situated within a large protected natural area, includes the dry forest at its heart, the seagrass beds along Poé Beach, and part of the West Coastal Zone, encompassing the Gouaro-Déva reefs. This area has been designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 2008.

The Deva region, which is relatively unknown and unspoilt, overlooks a UNESCO World Heritage-listed lagoon and reef teeming with marine flora and fauna. As a result, visitors can enjoy a variety of water sports, including diving, snorkelling, sailing, windsurfing, jet skiing, waterskiing, wakeboarding, and kite surfing. In the background, the hills and valleys of the Deva Domain provide scenic routes for hiking, biking, and horseback riding with stunning views of the translucent blue reef.
