Beautiful forest of trees, coco de mer and much more. It's good to have a guide to explain to you about the forest rather than walking around aimlessly :)

This is a good place to spend 1-2 hours walking around the jungles and making photos of all those giant trees. This is the only place where you can see coco d'mer plant growing. Entrance is about 400 RPS per person. They have gift shop as well.
