If you are in the south-east of the island, with not much to do on a sunny afternoon or week-end, why not head over to the Mahebourg waterfront for a little casual walk? It is a traditional Mauritian village situated on the southeastern coast of Mauritius and named after Bertrand François Mahé de La Bourdonnais, one of the most successful governors of the French period. The well-planned wide streets in the old section of Mahebourg still bear testimony to the Dutch and French colonial past. Today, it is a bustling centre of local trade. The new waterfront complex offers you to enjoy nice refreshing walks along the sea side. You will get to explore Mahebourg centre and visit the Historical Naval Museum which recounts the epic naval battles of the past between the Royal Navy and the French Navy. On the other side of the bay, you can spot a mountain which is locally known as the Lion mountain. This waterfront is a pleasant and relaxing venue with a view that will leave you in awe!
