Port Louis ©
A multicultural melting pot of a city, the Mauritian capital of Port Louis--or simply "Louis," as it's affectionately known--represents the most populous area of Mauritius.
You'll get in some beach time at Mont Choisy Beach and Le Morne Beach. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Scuba & Snorkeling and Le Morne Brabant. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Port Louis: Gris Gris Beach (in Souillac), International Slave Route Monument (in Le Morne) and Heritage Nature Reserve (in Bel Ombre). And it doesn't end there: kick back and relax at La Cuvette Public Beach, stroll through Bras d'Eau Public Beach, admire the natural beauty at SSR Botanic Garden, and steep yourself in history at The Martello Tower Museum.
