Spend 30 minutes around the Fontaine cooling down the feets and relax and enjoyed the music. Nice stop between the long walks on the island.

I love a water fountain and this one does not disappoint. Situated on Margaret Island this stunning water fountain is beautiful. Unfortunately we didn't see it at night with the lights and music but I bet it's stunning.
