Close to the edge of the Ouest and Artibonite departments, this unhurried town is the hub of the Arcadins Coast, the picturesque stretch of white-sand beaches home to most of Haiti’s resorts.
Montrouis is en route if you have a reservation at Royal Decameron, Moulin sur Mer or Kaliko Beach. Just over an hour’s drive northwest of the capital Port-au-Prince, Montrouis is also the first stop on the way to the mostly undeveloped plains of Artibonite.
Montrouis supplies a large part of all seafood eaten in Haiti, and is a popular destination for leisure fishing. One of the resorts, Moulin sur Mer, houses the Ogier-Fombrun museum, which offers visitors a glimpse into the pre-colonial history of Haiti up to 1794.
Go snorkelling at Moulin sur Mer
For all that resorts on the Arcadins Coast contrast with the undeveloped and unspoilt beaches lining the rest of Haiti's generous coastline, they offer tourists a very accessible way to enjoy another one of the natural treasures of the area: snorkelling.
Experienced snorkelers will find a wealth of seascapes to explore right around Haiti, but even beginners can dive into snorkelling at Monstrouis, thanks for a gentle introduction on offer at the Moulin sur Mer resort.
Marina Blue Haiti runs a diving and excursion center within Moulin sur Mer, with activities ranging from day tours of the islands off the Arcadins coast to PADI night diving. Montrouis is a great place to find guidance and safety the first time you dive into snorkeling. Another advantage of snorkeling with a Marina Blue tour is that they can take and guide you to their very own coral reef house, with both shallow and deep reefs.
It is no secret that coral reefs around the world are suffering. The healthy, well-preserved reefs off the coast of Arcadins should not be seen as evidence against this trend, but as a fragile treasure that reminds us what we stand to lose if we don't do our best to be reef-conscious travelers , and conscious consumers when we get back home.
In the mountains east of Montrouis, Kay Piat is something of an oasis in a desert. The two-hour-plus hike is steep and strenuous, but you'll be rewarded with access to a lush sanctuary that very few from the outside world have seen.
