Situated right by the coast, the deep blue of the ocean, the green of the manicured lawns, and the unmissable sloping roof create a memorable scene, so be sure to bring your camera. Take a look inside to view the interior's intricate woodwork and a font made from a giant clamshell, seamlessly balancing European and local inspirations. A stroll around the picturesque grounds completes your visit. Ask Inspirock to suggest an itinerary and make planning a trip to Cap Malheureux fast, fun, and easy.

  • Idyllic picture, the church with the bright red roof and the beautiful sea behind it. Church is not special inside, it's the setting it does. Beautiful bay with countless small boats.

  • One of the most beautiful church,with signal red roof situated by the main road and by the sea at Cap Malheureux.Very often found on postcards with its flame trees ( bouquet Des annees ).Ideally situated and has the Gunners quoin (Coin de Mire ) island in the background ,the blue sea with the fishing and pleasure crafts.At the back ,you can admire the islands in the shade.You can also buy fresh fish by the roadside.
  • One of the iconic spots in Mauritius. Highly recommended.
  • This this is amazing - the roof looks old but stable - Awesome place
  • Small church located on a stunning beach. Just takes a few minutes to look around.
  • If you are renting near Grand Baie, you must go to "Notre-Dame Auxiliatrice de Cap Malheureux" there is another way to go to the coastal beach, you can also enjoy the characteristics of this bay, French-style design of a unique mansion and Use French greeting with the dog can pass smoothly....try😁 The fish head in my hand is the locals who use the live fish as a dried fish to enjoy, but they will drop the fish head. You look carefully at the teeth of the fish that are constantly growing. But the new generation is not very fond of eating this kind of dried fish.
