AUTHENTIC VISITS TO MAHÉBOURG AND GRAND BAY

Located on the east coast, Mahébourg is a small, picturesque fishing village. Here time seems to be suspended.

From the colonial French-style building which houses the National History Museum, to the streets of the old village which bear witness to the Dutch occupation, to the Rault biscuit factory which has been making tasty cassava biscuits since 1870 – a stroll through this village will immerse you in the island's rich heritage. Dine ate of one of the beach restaurants in Mahébourg to taste the day's catch.

Nestled in the heart of a sheltered bay, Grand Bay’s lagoon invites contemplation.

Experience the authenticity of small shops by the ocean, the street vendors where you can taste rotis – spicy sandwiches popular with Mauritians – and the bars from which sega rhythms – the signature music of the island – escape. This is unforgettable Grand Bay.

Mandeburg, a name that wasn't chosen at random…

You will discover the influence of Mahé de La Bourdonnais, governor of the island under Louis XV during your trip to Mauritius. It is to pay tribute to him that Port-Sud-Est was renamed Mahébourg in 1804.
