Additional Information about the Sights on the West coast of Mauritius

Underwater Waterfall

The phenomenal Underwater Waterfall in Mauritius is one of the most unique geological formations in the world. Located on the southern-west tip of the island, this dramatic and out of the ordinary geological phenomenon offers an outstanding sight.

Mauritius happens to sit on an ocean shelf raised above seabed level. Off this particular coast, a gradual slope is noticed, abruptly ending in a 4000-meter-deep abyssal drop. Thanks to this marine topography, various shades of blue are visible, due to the constant movement of sand and silt deposits along these slopes. It is this unique harmony of shades which create the wondrous optical illusion known as the underwater waterfall.

Le Morne Mountain

The symbolic Le Morne Brabant is a majestic mountain located in the South Western part of Mauritius, on the Le Morne peninsula. The majestic mountain has been declared as a World Heritage site by UNESCO since July 6, 2008 to commemorate the Marronage (runaway slaves) legacy in Mauritius. It is believed that the slaves were committing suicide by jumping off the cliff of the mountain due to the very inhumane treatment they suffered.

Le Morne Brabant is one of the most preserved and wildest mountains of the island. It is a habitat to a very large variety of endemic and narrow-endemic species, such as the rare Trochetia Boutoniana, which is the floral emblem of Mauritius.

Blue Bay Marine Park

Located in the south-east of the island, Blue Bay was declared a national park in 1997. It was then designated as a wetland site under the Ramsar Convention on Wetlands of International Importance in 2008.

The marine park is famous for its amazing coral garden, which is home to hundreds of varieties of corals and its lively unique and colorful fauna. Close to the coastline, the site offers ideal conditions for snorkeling with a rich biodiversity as well as calm and shallow sea-water.

Maconde

Between Le Morne and Baie du Cap is where you will be able to witness the stunning Maconde View Point. It is believed that the name “Maconde” originates from the slavery period, where runaway slaves from the Makonde tribe of Mozambique came to seek refuge. Others believe that it was named after the governor Jean Baptiste Henri Conde, who built an outlook on the cliff.

The winding road along the basalt cliffs with the ocean lapping against the rocks, make for quite a sight and is a popular spot for those interested in watching the ocean swells.

Rivière des Galets

Settled between Souillac and Bel Ombre in the south of Mauritius, Rivière des Galets is popular for its unique beach, featuring thousands of little pebbles.

This scenic spot is a famed tourist attraction, perfect for a relaxing moment in a serene atmosphere as you watch the giant waves breaking on the shore. Instead of the usual white sand, this coastal region boasts polished pebbles that are equally mesmerising.

Gris Gris

The village of Gris-Gris is found at the Southern tip of Mauritius. The appeal of Gris Gris lies in its scenery, the high cliffs here drop abruptly to the sea and the bracing winds of the Indian Ocean blow all year round.

Gris-Gris is well known for its sea cliff and this is definitely a sight worth seeing. This part of the island is not surrounded by coral reefs and this is why heavy waves crash directly on the cliffs. At the southern end of Gris-Gris you will have a great viewpoint on the cliffs and will see the squashing of waves against the flanks of the cliffs.

Ile des Deux Cocos

The Ile des Deux Cocos islet is found off the coast of the south east. Rich with native vegetation, the islet is surrounded by dramatic views of the ocean pounding against the reefs and of the mountain range of Mauritius’ east coast.

Its outstanding natural beauty makes it a popular destination for a private island experience, away from this worldly noise. Nestled amongst the trees, lies the magical “Follies” Villa which was built over 100 years ago by Sir Hesketh Bellor.

Ile au Phare

Most commonly referred to as Ile au Phare by the locals, the islet is located on the coral reef in the southeast of Mauritius, in the bay of Grand Port. This rocky islet offers an enchanting panorama, bordered by azure blue waters along with waves crashing on the cliffs.

Ile au Phare is rich in history, classified as a historical monument dating back to the era of colonisation in Mauritius that still prevails. Given that it’s not populated, the wild beauty of the island has been preserved and stands gloriously amidst the Mauritian waters.

La Prairie

Located in the southwest of Mauritius, near the village of Baie-du-Cap, La Prairie Beach is one of many other spectacular beaches in the Savanne district. The huge lagoon is a real treat for the eyes, with multiple secluded corners that allow you to relax & unwind, away from the crowd.

It's hard not to fall in love with such a picturesque beach that emanates big islander vibes. La Prairie owes its name to the grass that grows along the edge of the pristine lagoon. This adds to the beauty and charm of this place whilst offering a postcard worthy view.
