Cap sur Tamarin #3_EN

A moment in time

When time comes to a standstill

Did you know? There used to be a second bridge in Tamarin. This bridge was built a long time ago and could be found further down the river, but it was destroyed by a cyclone. In the present day, we can still find a glimpse of its ruins blended with the lush nature around.

At the entrance of the village of Tamarin, a metallic bridge, built in 1934, stands proudly: the Tamarin Bridge. It has withstood the test of time. This emblematic structure is a testimony to the impressive work of its engineers. More than 50 metres long, this bridge is the only way for the inhabitants to get access to the rest of the island. It is, however, quite narrow and restricted to vehicles that weigh less than 10 tons.
