Place to shop
“A wonderful market with a large offering of fresh produce. There are also some great street food offerings - especially roti and dhal puri. Every Monday ‘la foire’ comes to town and the market expands along the waterfront bringing with it fabrics, clothing, household goods, street food carts and knick-knaks. Well worth a visit - I make a point to visit each time I am in Mauritius. ”

Beach
“Once you reach the bay of Blue Bay Marine Park, you will feast your eyes on some of the bluest waters and most breathtaking white sandy beaches you will ever see. When you see the turquoise blue color of the lagoon you will understand where the name comes from. The colors of the sea are incredible”

“Looking for yummy local cuisine? The restaurant Falaise Rouge will definitely suit your taste buds. Situated on the southeast coast of the island, Falaise Rouge has recently revisited its offer. The restaurant, which opens everyday for lunch, now offers a buffet meal with the best and quite uncommon Mauritian dishes.”
