    Mieten Sie ein Auto!
    Auf Mauritius gibt es Autovermietung in der Nähe von den meisten Hotels. Vielleicht möchten das Auto je nach Jahreszeit noch bevor Sie sich der Insel einige Zeit im Voraus buchen. Die Preise, die Autos und mieten sind bis zu westlichem Standard.

    Holen Sie sich eine gute Karte!
    Diese Tour führt Sie einige eher versteckten Orten und kleineren Straßen - Wegweiser sind selten in einigen Teilen von Mauritius. Die Karte sollte eine Skala von 2 km = 3 cm haben.

    Lieferungen zu erhalten!
    Wenn Sie ein All-Inclusive-Hotel übernachten, Selbstversorger ist schön für einen Wechsel. Wenn Sie (wie diese Tour schon sagt) im nordwestlichen Teil der Insel starten erhalten Sie alle (und noch mehr) müssen Sie bei der "Super-U-Hypermarkt" in Grand Baie (in der Nähe des Hafens).

    Wasserdicht zu bekommen!
    Sind Regenwälder und feuchten Gebieten im Südwesten von Mauritius - das Gebiet mit der höchsten Niederschläge auf der Insel (fast jeden Nachmittag).

Grand Baie

The tour starts at the parking lot of the Super U Hypermarket, where you got all you need for some decent picknicks on your two-days-trip. You don't want to waste too much time here, as the first cookie-and-water-stop is only 6 kilometere away at Cape Malheureux.
You get back on the Royal Road, which you follow straight north. You might have noticed: left-hand-driving, as Mauritius was under British rule until the late 1960ies.

Cap Malheureux

6 km north of Grand Baie at the B13 you find a little fishing village, with the unfortunate name of "Cape Malheureux". It is the northern cape of Mauritius and very famous on for its red roofed church.
The most amazing detail about Cape Malheureux is, that this church, a temple and a mosque are located very close to each other.
Get your picnic-gear and have the first break of the tour at the tiny beach with the fishing-boats. Enjoy the beautiful view on the northern Islets: "Ile Plate", famous for its lighthouse; "Ile Ronde", a wildlife bird sanctuary and "Coin de Mire"(or Gunner's Quoin). Looking like a huge whale that is resting in the water, "Coin de Mire" actually is a nature reserve and became a famous diving site - especially for night-diving - because if its amazing underwater world.
Ready to go on? Following the B13, that turn into the B15 at the city of Goodlands,make sure you keep as far east as the roads allow. In case you loose your way, don't worry: you are for sure going to discover beautiful hidden places and tiny villages. The whole eastern part of Mauritius is largely unspoiled and still rather wild with endless green sugar cane fields. Besides the luxurious hotel resort, that are walled off, the East is the area for those seeking tranquility, authentic local charm, amazing beaches, tranquility and wild coastline.

Roches Noire

After only 30 km through the rural north-east of Mauritius, you end up at one of the famous but never crowded beaches of Mauritius: La Fayette Beach -white sand dotted with black volcanic outcrops and crystal turquoise shallow waters and the view of small islands dotted with mangrove trees.

The sandy parts of the beach are small in size but they are made up by the shallow waters and sandy seafloor. You can go swimming or have another picnic in the bay behind the forrest in the southern part of the beach. If you are into hiking, you can go north and discover even more beautiful beaches.


Le Domaine du Chasseur is an exciting natural hunting and animal-watching area. Hikers can can chose between 5 and 15 kms long trails and will find rare kinds of trees and protected species. The restaurant serves a very good typically Mauritian menu, but the actual must is a visit to the viewing platform, from which you can take the most beautiful pictures.

Souillac (Souillac )

    Gris-Gris ist der südlichste Punkt von Mauritius und bekannt für seine Kliff. Dieser Teil der Insel ist nicht von Korallenriffen, umgeben, so dass die riesigen Wellen direkt an der Küste abstürzen. Hier finden Sie die "Roche Qui Pleure" (the Rock, der weint). Das ständige krachen der Wellen machen die Klippe, die aussehen, wenn sie weinte.


The entire southern coasts offers many swimming & sunbathing opportunities. Choose any of them and and you will find shallow quiet waters and sandy beaches. Depending on the day and season, you will meet the local kids and families, enjoying their sunday picnic. The strong waves from the Indian Ocean are broken 200m before the beaches at large reefs, which adds a wonderful white topping on the horizon.


You are probably staying in one of the many luxurious hotels on Mauritius. For this short "vacation from your vacation" we recommend a beautiful quiet guesthouse at Chamarel - called Le Coteau Fleurie. It is situated in the mountains in the south west and comes with beautiful view over the south of mauritius. After having explored have of the islands coast today, you can treat yourself with a cocktail and a beautiful sundown on the terrace. The small restaurants can provide a decent dinner. The guesthouse offers only 5 two-bed rooms, so you need to book in advance. (Price: only 50 Dollar a night per person)

Terres des Couleurs (Chamarel)

Getting up early next morning, you can either have breakfast at the guesthouse or you get you picnic-basket packed and enjoy your first break of the day in the hills close to the mystical area of "terre des sept couleurs". Make sure you visit the park early in the day, as it often is raining in the afternoons. Another good reason is the early sunlight, that turns the 7 different colors of the red sand in a gloomy mysterium. There are only vague explanations for this natural spectacle.

Le Pouce (Port Louis)

If you are not tired of hiking yet, you should visit "the thumb" - the most popular of all mountains on Mauritius. On your way there, you can follow the road B9 until it turn into A3 the highway. In case you have enough time left, make a turn to the western coast to Morcellement de Chazal and Pointe Aux Sables. The whole area is inhabited by the poorest population - the villages do show that. Yet, a lively atmosphere ca be observed.
Back to "Le Pouce". Park you car at Petit Verger near the village of Saint Pierre. The hike to the top takes about one hour - it is quite steep but the view over the western parts of Mauritius and its capital Port Louis are worth it.

Black River Gorges

While the east provided you with some amazing beach-experiences, the western part offers forrest and mountains. Make sure you are wearing hiking-shoes and you bring a rain-coat, as the next stage ends in a National park that shelters many different kinds of vegetation zones and many protected animals and plants. Hiking paths are rather underdeveloped, but they are worth a walk anyway, as you can admire precipices, waterfalls, the rainforest, heathland and get on top of the highest mountain of Mauritius: the Black River Peak (828m). Reaching the top, the whole island unfolds in front of you.

Grand Baie

After a day of hiking in the mountains, you should end your two-day-trip at the beach in Mon Choisy, south of Grand Baie, eat the last left-overs from your picnic-basket and watch the sundown, before you go home.
