    The place is absolutely lovely, the chapel at the bright colors at the edge of the beautiful blue ocean allow very nice pictures. Breakpoint is mandatory if you pass in the North.

  • Beautiful spot on the north coast of the island. I loved the red tin roof. It is a Catholic church, so go on a Sunday to watch the locals decked out in their Sunday best clothes. Lots of green lawns around and shade trees, with a tiny harbour for small boats. Delightful. Highly recommended.
  • Nice place for a short visit if you are in the area. Take your time for the church, take look at the beach and enjoy the view on the Island.
  • A nice viewpoint out towards the north islands. Lovely clear waters & unusual red-roofed church, but not a great deal to see & do
  • Ouite SURREAL church.....lots of Chinese with fake weddings !
  • Cap Malheureux, a place I grew up during the week ends. My grand father had a beach house there. you want a good swim in the clear waters, this is the place to go when in Mauritius
