Stop At: The Mauritius Glass Gallery, Pont Fer, Phoenix, Mauritius 0000

Stop At: Ganga Talao - Grand Bassin, Savanne District, Mauritius

Ganga Talao (commonly known as Grand Bassin in Mauritius) is a crater lake, about 550 metres above sea level, located in the mountainous Southwest district of Savanne. On the shoreline sits a temple along with a collection of small shrines dedicated to Lord Shiva and other gods.Ganga Talao is a major draw of crowds in Mauritius, with many people visiting the site to pray, meditate, play with the local monkeys, or simply to walk by the lake and enjoy the gorgeous surrounding views.

The lake of Ganga Talao is thought to be around 18 meters deep and is teeming with a healthy population of fish and eels – no doubt due to the leftover offerings they receive from Hindu pilgrims. However, it is strictly forbidden to fish here due to the sacred nature of the Ganga Talao lake.

Duration: 40 minutes

Stop At: Bois Cheri Tea Factory, Bois Cheri Road, Bois Cheri, Mauritius

The Bois Chéri is the first and biggest tea producer in Mauritius, operating since 1892. After a guided tour of the factory, you will discover the history of tea while visiting the tea production museum.

Duration: 1 hour

Stop At: La Plantation de Saint Aubin, St Aubin, Riviere des Anguilles, Mauritius

A quelques kilomètres au nord de Souillac en direction de Rivière des Anguilles se trouve cette très belle demeure coloniale du 19e siècle. Habitation d'origine des propriétaires de la plantation sucrière, elle fut construite en 1819 à proximité de l'usine, avec du bois provenant de navires démolis. L'escalier menant à l'étage fut d'ailleurs agence autour d'un mat de navire, et la charpente du grenier est celle d'une ancienne coque. En 1970, et en raison de la pollution sonore générée par une usine sucrière de plus en plus imposante, les propriétaires décident de reconstruire la maison quelques centaines de mètres plus loin, sur le site qu'elle occupe aujourd'hui

Duration: 1 hour

Stop At: Gris Gris Beach, South Coast, Souillac, Mauritius

Far away from the idyllic setting of calm seas and the tranquil scenery, is the Gris Gris beach, at the southernmost point of Mauritius. It is a few kilometers southeast of the village of Souillac- a historical village that dates back to the French colonial period.

Gris-Gris is well known for its sea cliffs and offers visitors a magnificent view from the top- this is definitely a sight worth seeing. Coral reefs do not surround this part of the island, which allows large waves to crash directly on the cliffs, creating big splashes of water.

At the southern end of Gris-Gris, you will have a great viewpoint on the cliffs and will see the crashing of waves against the flanks. There is a small garden offering many quiet spots for you to relax on one of the many benches, while having a view of the sea, waves and rock cliffs. From the garden, a path leads to a small beach where you can admire the view of the sea up close. Despite the white sandy beach, the waves and currents are extremely strong, so it is not advised to swim, but rather to have a stroll, admiring the view.
