A culinary and historical tour of the capital city by foot
Wandering Port-Louis’ narrow, cobblestone streets is like traveling back in time. The old black stone
buildings, traces of a colonial past. As you leave the main street and wander through the side streets (narrower but not less crowded), you will notice distinct smells: spices, incense, deep-fried dough, exhaust, and seawater. Experience the Mauritian way of living by sampling typical Mauritian dishes: steamed dumplings in succulent broth, rotis – Indian crêpes filled with cooked vegetables and spices, grilled peanuts dyed pink, and gato pima, deep fried chilly cakes.
- Half day tour (9:00 – 12:00)
- Mondays, Thursdays or Saturdays
- Inc. sampling of Mauritian street food and water
Scuba diving discovery of the west coast
Our trusted friends in Flic en Flac still run the Diving Centre from the house of the founder, who
discovered quite a few fish species in Mauritius that today carry his own name. We collaborate with them because they work to share their passion for the ocean rather than just to run a business – you will notice it in their devoted service and their small capacity boat that they never overload.
- Half day experience
- Available for beginner and qualified divers
- Groups of 2 – 8 divers
- Inc. scuba diving gear and civil liability
Hiking Le Gorges National Park
For beautiful and diverse viewpoints of the National Park, its lush mountains and the west coast with its piercing blue lagoon.

Mostly shaded and muddy woods.
