‪A fascinating excursion of these scenically beautiful islands which saw unfathomable violence and cruelty. Our tour guides were excellent, and we learnt about this place where so many suffered and tried to escape (papillon). An added bonus was seeing some monkeys and a cute agouti. ‬

‪We stopped here on our cruise ship. We were not expecting much since the island was a prison colony and virtually no people live here except those that maintain the island, which includes the employees that manage the hotel/restaurant/gift shop. We had to tender to the pier from our cruise ship. When we arrived, we began our walk using the path to the left of the dock. We downloaded a map prior to our arrival, and it was very easy to navigate. Stay on the main walking path and it takes you to the various sites on the island. Some were in much better shape than the others. My favorite was the church, which was maintained and very nice inside. Along the way, you will see monkeys, and much to our surprise, several peacocks. There is also a helipad there and a rocket launch site. You can also get some great views from the top. We were on the island for about 1-1/2 hours and saw everything. Best to arrive early in the day before it gets too hot. Take water, a hat, plenty of sunblock and insect repellant.‬

‪If you are visiting as part of a cruise you will want to get up early and get your tender ticket. The ocean can be rough and it can make it hard to land. Our ship offered 34 different tenders numbers we were 14. We waiting over 2 hours to go a shore and many numbers did not get a shore. This island is incredible and not worth missing. The cruise ship calls the island you are landing on Devil's Island but it is really Salvation's Islands (Îles du Salut) you can see Devil's Island from Îles du Salut.

Some of the friendliest locals were there to greet us and gave out maps, the maps were not very in-depth and hard to follow. But they got us around and at least something to cross locations off. There are a lot of different paths you can take and a lot not on the map. There are basic washrooms available, a restaurant and even a few accommodations. There was a lot of monkeys and Capybara.

This might be one of the most beautiful places I have ever been. It’s covered with thick forests of palm trees and is surrounded by beautiful blue waters. From a distance the beauty makes you forget about the horrible past this island has.

For almost 100 years, thousands of men died here while living in a French Prison. Before becoming a prison, this Island was a place of salvation. In the 1760's, French settlers were dying from yellow fever the survivors sought refuge on these islands.
But one hundred years later, French emperor transformed Îles du Salut into a prison. This would remove dangerous criminals from France, help start the lagging colonization of French Guiana and provided inexpensive labor as a replacement to the enslaved population in the colony, which France had freed in 1848. Many didn't survive the crossing and the conditions on Devil’s Island. Even if they did survive, they didn't returned home to France. Under the policy of doublage, prisoners couldn’t leave French Guiana once they finished their time. They had to remain for a equal amount time to their original sentence and anyone with a sentence of more than eight years was exiled for life.

There is a lot to see on this island and a lot of history to learn. It is extremely hot and humid. Make sure to bring lots of water and a good comfortable pair of shoes. The ground is very uneven and there is a lot of uphill. We only had two hours and we really hustled to fit all but two things in. I would say 4 hours would be a good amount of time to see everything at a slower pace.

There were a few stands by the tourism of French Guiana set up, some selling drinks and snacks some selling souvenirs. They also had a lot of sitting area's set up for waiting for the tenders to come back.

I read that a lot of people want to come here for the beach, I am not sure what beach there were talking about we didn't see one at all, and only saw one area that you could even get down to the water. If you are looking for a beach this is not the right place for you.‬

‪A must-see destination. This is where France sent its prisoners it wanted to severely punish. Dreyfus was sent here, but he was later released when it was determined that he was wrongfully convicted. It's also where Papillion escaped from. This was made into a movie. ‬

‪Hot as Hades, but well worth the sweat. Tried to walk the whole way around Isla but just to darn hot. Isla Royal was the closeted I could get to Devils Island, but it was just a bit over the water. I was told it was to unsafe with water currents, crumbling buildings and jungle growth and snakes.. Looked around the hotel at top of Isla Royal, which is a bit of a climb to reach. Beer was cheaper then the juice I ordered, which was $7.50 US. I had asked for coconut water, which is a much better hydration liquid and with all the coco trees, but none available. Weird as it would be a money maker for the island. Small and pricey gift shop at hotel..‬

‪L'île du Diable est la seule des îles du Salut qu'on ne visite pas
L'île Royale est la plus grande, et, à coté, l'île St Joseph
Faites attention lors de votre réservation (indispensable, même hors saison, les bateaux ne sont pas grands), à quelques euros près, vous pouvez vous retrouver avec un Aller-Retour simple pour l'île Royale seule, ou un tour en catamaran, avec un Guyanais qui vous raconte l'histoire des îles, vous fait faire le tour de l'île Royale, vous débarque dans cette île, viens vous rechercher pour un transfert sr lîle St Joseph, et viens vous rechercher avec boissons locales à bord (compagnie La Hulotte)
Pour ce qui est des îles, l'île Royale est chargée d'histoire, l'île St Joseph est surtout propice à une belle balade et une très belle plage à l'opposé du débarcadère‬

‪The islands called Devil's Island are more correctly the Salvation Islands -- of which there are three, Devil's Island being one of the three. You cannot actually land on Devil's Island for reasons I don't understand. It is said to be too dangerous, but it didn't appear to be that way to me. In any event, the real attraction is on St Joseph's Island, where the prison facilities are rapidly in decay. This looks like temples near Ankor Wat. Very photographic‬

‪Magnifique aventure que d'arpenter les îles du Salut, les vestiges du bagne sont bien conservés.
Possibilité de se baigner à la piscine des bagnards ou à côté vers le ponton en pierre.
La faune et la flore y est impressionnante.‬
