What Mauritius has to offer you.
The north of the island has plenty of beaches, each one more beautiful than the next. The most popular ones among Mauritians and tourists are Trou aux Biches, shaded by casuarinas, and the long curvy beach of Mont Choisy which continues from Pointe aux Canonniers to Grand Bay and to the divine Pereybere public beach.
For the more adventurous or those in search of peace and quiet, take a walk over the stones, to the left or right of Pereybere’s public beach and discover the private beaches of Casita and Bain Boeuf with their clear blue waters and exquisite views.
If the horizon is clear, you can appreciate the sunset from any point along the coast. Try to catch a glimpse of the “green rays” especially in the winter months when as the sun’s path is more northerly and the atmosphere more able to separate the colours. But be careful to protect your eyes and don’t stare directly at the sun!
The Red Roof Chapel in Cap Malheureux
Cap Malheureux is the northernmost part of the island. This is where the Commander-in-Chief John Abercromby landed his troops when the British attacked the island for the second time in 1810. Moreover, Cap Malheureux owes its importance to a small chapel: Notre Dame Auxiliatrice, commonly known as the Red Roof Chapel. Once there, simply appreciate the quality of the meticulous carpentry work and its giant clam holy water stoup.
Grand Bay and Pamplemousses
All those fond of shopping should stop at Sunset Boulevard in Grand Bay. Other shopping centres such as La Croisette and Super U in Grand Bay have outdoor play areas, skateboard parks and bumper cars that are great for children (and the young at heart!) and will keep them occupied while you do your shopping.
Those who wish to buy souvenirs can head to Pamplemousses where they will find an assortment of handicraft items, gift boxes, local fashion products, ship and aircraft models, paintings and jewellery. Furthermore, at Pamplemousses: a renowned manufacturer of ship models and memorabilia related to sailing ships.
Grand Bay is the Mauritian sailing paradise thanks to its protected bay. From there, one can join a yacht trip, a catamaran cruise or even rent a private sailing boat. The conditions for sailing are ideal and yachts can be hired to navigate around Mauritius or to visit some of the islands that lie off the north coast.
The North has the most beautiful dive sites of the island. There is a range of interesting options for beginners as well as for experienced divers. Some of the most popular spots are: Gunner’s Coin, with a depth of 26 meters where you can see large parrotfish at each dive; Whale Rock (26 to 38 meters deep) where the lucky ones can come face to face with a hammerhead shark; and Holt’s Rocks (16 to 25 meters deep) whose name suggests the formation of huge rocks under the sea. Other spots are to be found in Trou aux Biches, which is more adequate for families, and Pointe aux Piments where you can swim with the turtles. Don’t forget your waterproof camera!
Other underwater activities
Among the most spectacular and favourite ways to explore the ocean: a trip in the Blue Safari submarine or with an underwater scooter. An opportunity for those who do not dive to enjoy a superb encounter of the rich Mauritian marine fauna.
If you want to have some great evenings in Mauritius and meet the locals, there is nowhere better than Grand Bay where you will definitely feel the heat! Just follow the coastline at night and you will discover the various and lively discotheques, clubs, bars, lounges and billiard halls.
Mauritius has plenty to offer you for that Dream Destination Experience.
