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.
Start off your visit on the 24th (Sun): hunt for treasures at Central Market, contemplate the long history of Citadel, then get engrossed in the history at L'Aventure du Sucre, and finally admire the natural beauty at SSR Botanic Garden. Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the next day: examine the collection at Chateau De Labourdonnais, kick back and relax at Mont Choisy Beach, and then get a new perspective on things with Boat Tours & Water Sports.

Plan my trip to Port Louis with suggested itineraries provided by Inspirock.

Johannesburg, South Africa to Port Louis is an approximately 8.5- hour combination of train, flight, car, and bus. You'll lose 2 hours traveling from Johannesburg to Port Louis due to the time zone difference. Traveling from Johannesburg in December, expect a bit warmer with lows of 27°C in Port Louis. Finish your sightseeing early on the 26th (Tue) so you can drive to Blue Bay.

Tucked away in the relatively undeveloped southeastern corner of Mauritius, a Blue Bay vacation provides guests with a quiet spot to relax that's still within close distance to the country's airport.
On the 26th (Tue), have some family-friendly fun at Bowfighters, get engrossed in the history at Frederick Hendrick Museum, and then head off the coast to Ile des Deux Cocos.

For more things to do, ratings, photos, and other tourist information, go to the Blue Bay tour website.

Traveling by car from Port Louis to Blue Bay takes an hour. Alternatively, you can take a bus. In December, daytime highs in Blue Bay are 35°C, while nighttime lows are 27°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 27th (Wed) early enough to drive to Flic En Flac.

An unusual commodity in the lesser-touristed western part of Mauritius, the developed seaside village Flic En Flac boasts a vast white sandy beach that generates a large amount of tourism.
Head to Rhumerie de Chamarel and Ruisseau Creolefor some retail therapy. Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Le Morne Brabant and Crystal Rock. Explore Flic En Flac's surroundings by going to Bel Ombre (Heritage Nature Reserve & Heritage Golf Club), Chamarel (Chamarel’s Seven Coloured Earth Geopark, Curious Corner of Chamarel, &more) and Le Morne (Underwater Waterfall, International Slave Route Monument, &more). Next up on the itinerary: enjoy the sand and surf at Flic en Flac Beach, pick up a one of a kind souvenir at Le Dernier Comptoir, admire the sheer force of Les 7 Cascades, and identify plant and animal life at Wildlife Areas.

For other places to visit, photos, more things to do, and more tourist information, refer to the Flic En Flac day trip site.
