Le Morne Brabant

Characterized by the verdant monolith that towers up to 556 meters (1,824 feet), the Morne Brabant peninsula is a treasure trove of nature and history. Located at the far southwestern end of the Indian Ocean and enveloped by a lagoon, the peninsula brims with an abundance of flora and fauna. Home to two rare species of plants, Mandrinette and Boucle d’Oreille, this peninsula is drenched in rich culture and history as well. While no official records of this incident have been found, the peninsula is associated with a heartbreaking legend from 1835. Out of fear of getting arrested and going back to the life of slavery, the refuge slaves of the island jumped from the massive monolith. They mistook the intentions of the policemen who arrived to free them from the bonds of enslavement. Mauritian Creoles celebrate this day as a reminder of the abolition of slavery and a tribute to the slaves who lost their lives. Designated a World Heritage Site by UNESCO, the glistening waters of this magnificent peninsula shine brightly, triumphing over the gloomy past of the island.

Ganga Talao (Grand Bassin)

Nestled in the heart of Mauritius, the shimmering waters of the Ganga Talao surrounded by infinite verdant stretches form a spectacular canvas of colors. A revered site of Hindu worship in Mauritius, magnificent statues and temples characterize the pellucid waters of this lake. Formerly known as ‘Pari Talao’ due to the folktales associated with it, the lake was renamed after the sacred Indian river, Ganga. The alabaster Sagar Shiv Mandir on the lake shores is one of the most revered Hindu shrines in Mauritius. Home to the tallest statue in Mauritius, the 108 feet (33 meters) tall Shiva statue dominates other figurines of Hindu deities. Displaying spectacular vibrancy and devotion, thousands of pilgrims walk barefoot to the lake during the grand celebrations of Mahashivratri.

Chamarel Waterfall

Plummeting through the rugged escarpments, the Chamarel Waterfalls are the highest in Mauritius with a drop of 80 meters (262.4 feet). Shrouded in the verdure of a magnificent valley, the falls are formed by lush St. Denis river. The natural beauty can be explored by several hiking trails that meander through the green forests and lead up to this magical cascade. The placid pool formed by its plunging waters is a haven for swimmers. The immaculate beauty of the Chamarel Waterfalls is a pleasantly surprising change from the pristine beaches of Mauritius.

Flic en Flac

Dotted with strips of white sandy beaches and tranquil neighborhoods, this coastal town is one of the most charming surprises of Mauritius. Earning its name from the Dutch phrase ‘Fried Landt Flaak’, meaning free flat land, the words are fitting for the picturesque landscape of the town. Blessed with immaculate beauty, the white sand Tamarin Beach is deemed to be one of the most spectacular beaches of Mauritius. The jewel-toned blue waters near the town are abundant with coral reefs. The Casela Bird Park of the town shelters the rare endangered Pink Pigeon. Several upscale hotels and resorts have mushroomed to boost the commercial and tourist value of the place. A beautiful balance of nature as well as quaint town life, Flic en Flac is as interesting as its name.

Port Louis

The capital of the island nation of Mauritius, Port Louis is a bustling, vivacious metropolis, named after King Louis XV. Historically, the city was always useful to the occupying powers of the island, be it the French or British. Owing to its convenient location, it was an easy entry point for ships and other vessels. It was the French, however, who were instrumental in making the city administratively prominent. Today, the city boasts a vibrant culture, a rich history, and is a recommended starting point for tourists. The Caudan Waterfront almost singlehandedly dominates the metropolitan vibe with its spectacular assemblage of upscale boutiques, restaurants, and cinemas. Landmarks like the Blue Penny Museum and Port-Louis Theatre solidifies the strong historical and social scene of Port Louis. The elite of the city can often be spotted at the Champ de Mars racecourse, which is the oldest race track in the entire Indian Ocean region. A city that has preserved its rich colonial past through its immaculate architecture while progressing towards a bright future, Port Louis definitely merits a visit.

Mahébourg

Mahébourg represents history of the Mauritian island; located on the Southern coast, this was the region where colonialism was first established. The National Historical Naval Museum (Mahebourg Naval Museum) truly reflects Mahébourg in true sense of the word; you can check out the artifacts, historic documents, weapons used during the French battles and gain insight into the French colonial rule. While the museum peeks into the history, the Mahebourg Tourist Village unravels the regional art. At this tourist village, you can pick up handicrafts, trinkets and souvenirs. Owing to the popularity of Mahebourg, may resorts like Le Preskil Beach Resort have come up to accommodate the ever-increasing tourist boom. With a rich history and modern entertainment activities on offer, visit to this Mauritian city is a must.
