One of the most common local souvenirs is tableware made of palm leaves, processed in a special way. It corresponds to the style of the island. Moreover, tableware does not bring any harm to the environment. Of course, if you want you can eat using these plates, but it is hardly the best way to affect the durability of such a souvenir.

Another truly local souvenir is a homemade doll. Women and girls of the island created the talisman and game dolls for many years which are dressed up in national costumes.

The tea is a high quality product here. Be sure to buy a few bottles of local rum and a few packages of local exotic sauces. The largest variety of island products can be seen at the weekly Thursday Fish Fry.
