  • With its distinctive red roof this charming church is placed in an idyllic setting. Worth having a stop to explore. 
  • the drive through the village was lovely and suddenly a small church with a vibrant red roof came into view, what an amazing sight. set in a beautiful bay with local men fishing off the rocks. 
  • This is a lovey little place to visit. Parking can be a bit difficult, but shouldn't put you off. Make sure you pass by,

  • 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.
  • Pretty church with a beautiful view! Lovely little church with a gorgeous surrounding beach. Well worth visiting if you are in the north. Regards Svein-Magne Tunli from Bergen, Norway
  • 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
  • Beautiful scenic beach. Blue ocean quite surrounding. In sync with nature. Birds chirping ocean wave sounds and wind roars. Clean cool beach and chapel
  • Beautiful, picture perfect chapel located on the coast.
