Awesome food with a beautiful lake and the mini zoo. I enjoyed every bit I took and the boat ride on the lake is everything. I will definitely be back.

Finding Bab's dock was quite a challenge but we were really glad when we finally did. Exciting activities - swimming, canoeing and sailing. Really good food as well - I had fish (well spiced) and chips.

Great and very exotic place to visit in Cotonou. Ideal to relax and have a good very fresh fish food. The prices are a little bit high compared to the country but very moderate for a tourist (I doubt Benin will have a lot unfortunately)....More

Very good destination for a day with family and / or friends. Artificial island but very natural vegetation and warm frame. I always enjoyed going there. Attractions for children and adults, respecting the environment. Meals and beverages on-site. It is a detour that deserves to...More

After a gentle boat trip, we had lunch here and chilled for a few hours, very nice. It was part of a guided tour to Ganvie (the floating village) again by boat.
