Well known for its Dodo bird, Mauritius is one of the most peaceful and successful destinations in Africa. With its white sand and blue seas, Mauritius is praised all over the world for its multi-ethnic population, its democratic government and its unique destination on the world map.

Le Bouchon Mauritius

Le Bouchon Mauritius is a unique location in Mauritius where the landscape has still kept its charm in a natural state. It is located on the IMG_0229South East Coast of the Island few minutes away from Blue Bay. While most of Le Bouchon is not really a swimming beach, it has one of the most beautiful scenery. Unfortunately recently the shipwreck of MV Benita kind of destroyed this beautiful sea. The ship was removed yet its oil spill has created a very bad environment for the fauna and the flora.

Nonetheless Le Bouchon is still one of the most interesting places in the world.

Flic En Flacq

Among the most sought destination by Mauritians is probably the Flic En Flacq beach.  It has probably the largest beach space with hotels such as La Pirogue.  Flic En Flacq is unique because it is highly populated during week-ends and is a great getaway for both the local population but also by tourists. Visit Flic en Flacq and enjoy yourself with all the great amenities offered to you.

The Pamplemousses Garden

Located in the North of the island, this is one of the most beautiful and oldest gardens created in Mauritius.

The Sir Seewoosagur Ramgoolam Botanical Garden (sometimes shortened to the SSR Botanical Garden), commonly known as the Pamplemousses Botanical Garden, is a popular tourist attraction in Pamplemousses, near Port Louis, Mauritius, and the oldest botanical garden in the Southern Hemisphere. Famous for its long pond of giant water lilies (Victoria amazonica), the garden was first constructed by Pierre Poivre (1719 – 1786) in 1770, and it covers an area of around 37 hectares.

It is a site not to miss if you are visiting Mauritius.
