- The islet of Marla represents the charm of the South of Mafate on its own. This is the highest islet in the cirque, 1645 metres above sea level. Its name comes from the Malagasy word 'marolahy' which means 'many people'. This lovely plateau began to be occupied at the beginning of the 20th century for farming and quickly became the most populated islet in the cirque with around a hundred inhabitants. Today, the main resource is tourism with a large number of visitors, but there are only about 20 people left, and the islet now seems unpopulated. Waking up in the shadow of Gros Morne, it’s the essential passage at the foot of Col du Taïbit to get to Cilaos from Mafate.
