In Mauritius, when we speak of “The North,” Grand Bay is the first thing that comes to mind. Grand Bay, through sustained development, has become the premier tourist destination of the island. Known for its wide variety of restaurants and nightlife, you will immediately be drawn to its charming and exuberant village.
Wonder where the Wifi is weak! The South and coastal route of the island is one of our favorite places to unwind and reconnect with nature. Witness the rich flora and fauna at the gorges of Alexandra Falls, discover the Hindu culture, soak in the rich beauty surrounding the sacred lake of Grand Bassin and drive alongside one of the most beautiful coastal roads in the world!
The west coast is home to some of the most breathtaking viewpoint. Don’t forget your camera and enjoy the very best of nature that the Island has to offer.
If you would like to know more about the local culture, Port Louis is the place to be.
Founded in 1735 during the French colonial period, the city’s foundation was laid and pioneered by then Governor Bertrand Francois Mahé de La Bourdonnais, giving the island its focal point for immigration and commerce. Today, the bustling city retains most if not all of its historic roots and continues to be the hub of government and business.
The heart of the island is cooler than the coastal regions and is situated 400 to 600 meters above sea level. Visit the dormant volcano, enjoy some duty-free shopping at Curepipe, taste a little bit of Island Rum, and enjoy the best views of the inner city of Curepipe.
A rich stream of stories lies at the very heart of Mauritius. The East Coast is undoubtedly one of the island’s most beautiful coastlines, set alongside emerald-coloured lagoons. Beyond its beaches and exquisitely blue waters lies a treasure trove of art and history just waiting to be discovered.
