Sights (13)

Île aux Cerfs

A paradise for water sports and has one of the most beautiful beaches in Mauritius. You cannot afford to miss this tiny island, delicately poised on the ocean, a real pearl in the Mauritian landscape. Price conscious visitors would be well advised to take ample food and drink, as the only bar and restaurant on the island primarily targets well-heeled tourists. Boats depart regularly from Trou-d'Eau Douce. There is a variety of vessels that serve the route including catamarans, yachts and "pirate-ships". Some serve food (usually barbecue, especially seafood) on board included in the price and tend to take a detour to the Grand River South East waterfalls for a visit.


Black River Gorges National Park

This national park of 6,574 ha (16,244 acres) was created in 1994 for the protection of Mauritius’ remaining native forests. Visitors can enjoy magnificent landscapes, with endemic plants and rare bird species. A trail leads from the Pétrin information centre to an area of typical plant life and to a conservation area.


Sir Seewoosagur Ramgoolam Botanical Garden

If you want to see some plants originating from Mauritius, then this is the place for you. The Sir Seewoosagur Ramgoolam botanical garden is the oldest botanical garden in the Southern Hemisphere. It was founded by Pierre Poivre (1719 – 1786) in 1770, contains some flora unique to Mauritius and covers an area of around 37 ha. It also has several animals, being especially famous for its fish, deer and tortoises, as well as an old replica of a sugar mill.


Île aux Aigrettes



Trou aux Cerfs

This volcano crater dormant for 700,000 years is the main attraction in Curepipe.


Tamarind Falls

A beautiful attraction of the southwest of Mauritius. These falls are awkward to reach, but no doubt, it's worth the effort. Tamarind Falls on the Interior portion of the island is an incredible string of about 7 waterfalls surrounds by green mountains and is tucked away beyond a sugar cane filled. Bring something to swim in as there are numerous pools beneath certain falls to take a dip in. There are some spots that mean getting a little dirty, but it is well worth it. First-time visitors should not to go unguided. This is one of the most beautiful and calmest places in Mauritius, and one of the best places for nature and animals lovers, and for finding exotic plants and birds.


Blue Penny Museum

A modern museum dedicated to the history of Mauritius and the famous legend of Paul and Virginia. The museum is also the owner of the two most famous stamps of the world: The Post Office Blue Two Pence and the Post Office Red One Penny. Both stamps are in display in the museum but they are lit only on the half hour for 10 minutes, first scheduled at 10:30 and last at 16:30. The museum is open from 10:00 to 16:30 from Monday to Tuesday, closed on Sundays and public holidays.


Curepipe Botanic Gardens

The gardens have the rarest palm tree, Hyophorbe amaricaulis, of which there is only one specimen in the world.


Caudan Waterfront


Ebene CyberCity

Ebene cyber tower


Champ de Mars Racecourse

horse racing track. Free access. To get a nice view on the races, climb to the Citadelle on the neighbouring hill.


Seven Coloured Earths

A winding road leads from Case Noyale village to the coloured earths of Chamarel: an undulating landscape of different and contrasting shades of colours. The different shades of blue, green, red and yellow are apparently the result of the erosion of the volcanic ash. The site possesses a rare beauty. Much of the sand has been souvenired by locals. It is now sectioned off, but is not that impressive.


Maheswarnath Mandir

Hindu temple is the biggest and one of the oldest (1888) of its kind on the island
