Art Gallery

The Big Barge art gallery is one of the most unique galleries that you will ever come across in your travels. It is housed completely inside the hull of a rustic timber barge that has been beautifully restored over the past decade. The gallery has stunning views out to the Indian Ocean, where it once chartered the waters.

Come and visit the gallery which showcases a collection of exquisite and inspiring artworks by a number of local artists. All works for sale are high quality, original works that truly capture the essence and beauty of the islands.

Artworks exhibited in the gallery include:

  • Jewellery
  • Acrylic Paintings
  • Driftwood Furniture
  • Printed Textiles
  • Painted Tiles
  • Traditional Wooden carvings
  • Photo Canvases
  • Mixed Media
  • Photographic Art Books


The gallery also offers a unique gift collection, complimenting local artworks. The collection includes a range of embroided and batik bags, tablecloths, cushion covers, purses, scarves and wooden jewellery.
