Take a break from the city noise by visiting Place des Cocotiers, a quiet park offering greenery and blooming tropical flowers. If you want some company and a bit of distraction, look for the park's giant chessboard and band rotunda dating back to the 1800s. Visit at night or on the weekends to catch special events that include performances with live music and traditional dancing. Occasionally you can even catch a market selling arts and crafts, produce, cakes, and cooked dishes.

  • Not much to do. A little park in the city which is otherwise not exactly bustling. There are one or two small cafe options but once again nothing absolutely amazing. Could easily skip but feel free to visit if you're in the immediate area
  • Tidy park surrounded by local shops and eating spots. Also has quick free WIFI.
