Trou aux Biches Beach, Mauritius

My current workplace is the beach of Trou aux Biches, only two villages away from Grand Baie and also very close to the beach of Mon Choisy. White sandy beach, turquoise water and the sunshine are my office today. Along the rambling beach, it is not hard to find a place in the sun, or shade. You only have to pay attention to the owners, because there are a lot of hotels located. For me this is exactly the opposite of Mon choisy. Trou aux Biches Beach is lined with hotel associated sunbeds and of course their guests, while in...

Ile des Deux Cocos, Mauritius

To reach my today’s destination, I have to traverse almost entirely Mauritius. My path leads me towards Mahebourg, close to the airport, at Plaisance. The morning traffic does not bother me, full of anticipation for my day. It goes to “Ile des deux cocos”, probably one of the most beautiful islands around Mauritius. “Ile des deux cocos” is located off the southeast coast and just next to “Blue Bay”, the largest Maritime Park and Marine Reserve Mauritius’. After initial difficulties to find the dock for the boat trip to “Ile des deux cocos”, the magnificence and grace can be seen...

Péreybère Beach, Mauritius

Halloween a bit differently. All the clubs and bars in Grand Baie and the surrounding area last night were dark and decorated in the atmosphere of Halloween and people were celebrating till the break of day. Happy I am to be on the beach of Pereybere without all the spooky ghosts, monsters, and bloodthirsty party animals. Pereybere is the nearest village to Grand Baie, towards Cap Malheureux. A little piece of paradise, with a white sandy beach, the many shades of blue of the Indian Ocean and small back roads through volcanic stones, offer quieter and not so frequented bathing...

Grand Baie, La Croisette, Super U, Bazar, Beaches, Clubs and more of Mauritius

In the north of the paradise island Mauritius, nestled in the bay, lies Grand Baie, with a population of almost 12,000 people. As one of the most popular tourist regions, Grand Baie has a lot to offer. Next to a range of shops, restaurants, bars and beaches, also the cultural and religious charm are not lost here. Because of this broad range of activities, Grand Baie is a popular meeting place for locals and tourists, young and old, as well as pleasure seekers and party lovers. In Grand Baie countless accommodations are offered, in different categories, from private- to luxury...

Ile aux Cerfs , Mauritius

Located on the east coast of Mauritius, there is another popular tourist destination, the island ” Ile aux Cerfs “. After only a few minutes by motor boat you reach the small holiday paradise, characterized by filao trees, palm trees and a white sandy beach. Here one cannot talk about unaffected, since there is the possibility to choose between two restaurants and the Sands Bar. Also, all water sports, including parasailing, a tour by speed boat and a snorkeling course is offered. Furthermore, there is an 18- hole golf course located in the inner island. Already upon arrival at Ile...

Goodlands & Grand Gaube, Mauritius

Today I visited Goodlands, the largest and most economically important city of the north. Since left-hand traffic prevails in Mauritius, I was glad that a friend accompanied me, who also took over the driving. Looking for the right way to Goodlands, we drove through the seemingly endless expanses of sugar cane fields. It was certainly our excellent sense of direction, because we got lost not once. Maybe it rather was the knowledge of my friend about the country. As we could see the sign of Goodlands, I was really excited what would await me. We crossed the largest city of...

Mon Choisy Public Beach, Mauritius

Today, I am allowed to spend another day in Paradise. Actually on my to-do-list for today, was to visit the beach of Pereybere, but my friends invited me for a spontaneous BBQ at the beach of Mon Choisy. After a 3 hour quick shopping tour to buy the necessary things, I am now sitting on the beach of Mon Choisy. My friends prepare the BBQ, which is why I am able to do my work and keep you up to date. The beach of Mon Choisy is a sought-after place. No wonder! Crystal clear water and a seemingly never-ending sandy...

Cap Malheureux, Mauritius

Awakened by the early morning sun, I went to the north of Mauritius, today. The visit of “Cap Malheureux” should be done by every Mauritian visit. Given the incredible view of the turquoise ocean and the heavenly peace, one imagines the question of of how the small fishing village got his name. The translation of the French “malheureux” ranges from “unhappy”, “sad” to “miserable”. Mauritius is home to very familiar and tolerant people who are mostly friendly and helpful. So I took the chance to let me clear up by a local resident: Near ”Cap Malheureux” the British conquered the...

Pereybere – the most beautiful place in Mauritius

For me, Pereybere offers everything you want in paradise. Located in the north, it is a place which never becomes boring – is where island life pulsates. It’s not just tourists who flock in their masses to places like Pereybere, Grand Baie and Trou aux Biches; Mauritians also like to visit, day and night. The bus services are very good and there are many taxi drivers around who charge the same price as the buses. From one side you can get to Cap Malheureux and from the other side you can reach Grand Baie. Like everywhere else on the island,...

La Cuvette Beach, Grand Baie, Mauritius

In Mauritius there are many beaches which compete for the coveted title of the most beautiful beach on the island. Using the process ingeniously employed in L’ecole des fans, however, Mauritius can boast that every one is a winner. Indeed, to nominate the most beautiful beach on the island is like asking Paris, the humble shepherd of Greek mythology, to nominate the most beautiful of all Olympian goddesses. Just as the young Trojan prince had to make the difficult choice and give the prized golden apple to Aphrodite, if we have to face the agonising dilemma of voting in favour...

Port Louis – the capital of Mauritius

In the west of Mauritius, sheltering under the protective enclave of the Moka Mountain range, lies the capital city of Port Louis.  This city, which is the largest on the island and is also the main port, was founded in 1735 by the French and named in honour of their king, Louis XV.  Due to its strategic location it became an important naval base for the French fleet; one hundred years later the British, recognising its powerful position, built Fort Adelaide, or more commonly La Citadelle, on one of the hilltops overlooking the port and city. Port Louis is also...
