Out and about nearby

Port Louis is the capital of Mauritius, and is constantly buzzing with cosmopolitan life and culture. The central market is the focal point for many visitors due to the vibrant experience it offers. Alternatively, visit the historic Champ de Mars, the Place d'Armes, the Statue of Mahe de la Bourdonnais, the Government House, Aapravasi Ghat, the Caudan Waterfront, and, of course, Fort Adelaide. In the north of the island, visit the stunning beachfront and quaint streets of Grand Bay, the picturesque village of Cap Malheureux, and the tropical plants at Les Vergers of Labourdonnais at Mapou and the Sir Seewoosagur Ramgoolam Botanical Garden. For stunning seascapes and water sports, head to Ile aux Cerfs, home to extensive sandy beaches and a tortoise farm. Mahebourg is one of the main fishing villages on the island, home to the National History Museum and Cavendish Bridge, and was the site of the only Napoleonic naval victory over the English in 1810. For exceptionally calm waters, head to the west of the island. Swim in the waters beside the lighthouse in Albion, relax on the beach at Flic en Flac, or visit the villages of Tamarin and Black River. For cultural, historic towns, head inland towards Rose Hill, Quatre Bornes, and the Trou aux Cerfs volcano.
