Mahebourg Village:

The Villa is located 10 minutes away from the town of Mahebourg where you can discover The Mahebourg Bazaar which is opened every day. The Bazaar is far more authentic than the one in Port-Louis and is easily accessible. The Mahebourg Market Fair is on Mondays and offers a friendly atmosphere. It is lively & cheerful, and you can buy local products, crafts, clothes and bring back home, souvenirs!

Blue Bay Marine Park:
The Blue Bay Marine Park is a must see, 100 meters from the villa! There you will find rare corals and fish species in a depth of 5.5 metres. There is more than 50 different species of corals that have been identified, and more than 80% are alive.
It is now protected by the government, due to constant degradation of the marine environment left by urbanization and the tourism industry.
Take a glass bottom boat from Blue Bay Public Beach or put on your mask, palm & tuba and discover the wonderful marine life of the crystal clear ice blue water of the Marine Park.

Traditional Boat trips & Catamaran Cruises:
To discover the largest lagoon of the island, you can choose from a wide variety of half day or full day boat trips & Catamaran Cruises to the historical islands of Ile aux Cerfs, Ile aux Aigrettes, Ile aux deux Cocos, Ile aux Phare, and Ile de la Passe (famous historical island going back to the time of the Battle of Vieux Grand Port -1810)

Pointe d’Esny being a sailing paradise we strongly recommend an unforgettable way to discover the magnificent lagoon on a multi colored typical Mauritian pirogue. You will discover the pleasures of sailing like never before.

Biscuitterie Rault:

The factory was founded by Jean Fabien Rault who originally produced the famous manioc biscuits, the first commercially manufactured biscuits sold in 1870. During World War One the factory was at its busiest employing up to 100 people, when ships found it almost impossible to visit the island with supplies the islanders had to survive on the biscuits. The factory was destroyed in 1960 by cyclone “Carol”, and again suffered in the early 1970s when cyclone “Gervaise” destroyed most of the manioc plantations.Being the sole manioc biscuit factory in Mauritius and on the African continent, Rault has continued to make a name for himself since 1870. Now 83 years old, Mrs Thérèse Sénèque who runs this family business jealously keeps the secret of these biscuits. With biscuits made of chocolate, butter, milk or coconut, she intends to steam ahead with a recipe that has been developed at length: biscuit with a manioc filling. Today the 4th generation of the Rault family still run the business. The biscuits are made without any preservatives, coloring or sweeteners. After touring the factory there is a chance to sample the biscuits – together with a nice cup of tea.

The Naval Museum:
The Naval Museum of Mahebourg is 3 minutes from the villa by bicycle. A show-case of the naval battle of Vieux Grand-Port the very informative and well documented museum of the history of Mauritius. A visit not to be missed.

Ferney Nature Reserve:
Ferney Nature Reserve is15 minutes by car.Walk the trails of one of the last remaining indigenous forests.

Aigrettes Island Nature Reserve:
A visit of Aigrettes Island Nature Reserve will allow you to admire the pink pigeon and the kestrel in liberty, two birds species saved from extinction by the Mauritius Wildlife Foundation. Also rare specimens of endemic flora are to be seen.
