Mauritius, a preserved paradise

Written on : 15 September 2017

The Southern region and its idyllic setting

Dominated by the Cocotte Mountain, Black River Gorges National Park is a must-see for adventure enthusiasts in the wilderness. This famous park is home to unique mammals, such as pitch and black bug. On some trails, you will reach the top of the island.

Exceptional sites such as the salt mines of Tamarin are worth a visit. Often neglected or fallen into oblivion, Souillac marks the authenticity in the pure state of Mauritius. Put yourself in the Telfair garden for a picnic. Discover the Gris-Gris cliff and the Quiet Rock. Enjoy a swim in the wilderness at the Rochester Falls Waterfall. Also make a stop at the old port of Batelage.

The North of the Island: a magnificent place

This part of the island has everything in regards to its beauty. You can go for a stroll while visiting Grand Bay or the unusual village of Cap Malheureux with its magnificent beach of the Cuvette, and its church with its three red roofs.

To enjoy the landscapes do not miss a visit to the botanical garden of Pamplemousses of 26 hectares, which is without any doubt one of the most beautiful places to see on the island. It must be known that its name does not come from the fruit of the same name, but from trees called "grapefruit trees" that produce a fruit similar to grapefruit.

Take advantage of the opportunities offered by this part of the island to practice water sports such as windsurfing, diving and kitesurfing.
