    A small but informative section on bees, open viewable hive frame and a well stocked friendly shop. It looks like a tour of the honey production was available but wasn't out of season when we looked. A nice little thing to do in Loix within the artisan area. Nice to cycle to through the salt marshes.

    I really love this place. A local beekeeper and all the bee-derived products that you could imagine. The store is really a gem, and the prices are correct for the quality and authenticity. The big plus is the guided visits for all and activities for kids (make your own jar of honey, cooking with honey). This is great and the staff is really welcoming. The Honey Bee Re is located close to a number of other artists and local producers.

    We wanted to buy a few pot of honey for breakfast and so happy to find one in the island. They have fairly priced honey pots but the others were a little overpriced.
