Madinina “the island of flowers” is also a fishing land, bordered by two seas with contrasting aspects and behaviors that have shaped landscapes, shores and villages.
To the east, the Atlantic coast, known as “to the wind“: the Atlantic Ocean is powerful, the waves break on the coastline, except in the southern part where the barrier reef creates a natural protection.
To the west, the Caribbean coast, known as “under the wind“: the sea is calm and the seaside more sheltered. Yet, regardless of the village of origin, fishing is ubiquitous, as a profession, a means of subsistence and an economic sector. A true tradition that men perpetuate, often from generation to generation. Immediate boarding on board the yoles, objective: the miraculous fishing!
