  • One of the not to be missed historical site in Mauritius. Visit takes about 1 hour. Really interesting for heritage tourism.  more »
  • I have brought a disappointment at Aapravasi Ghat due to that this reconstituted not respecting the original material, all artificial except the entrance staircase. I had seen videos and they had given me the feeling of being rebuilt with more fidelity to the original.

  • Free to enter. Very interesting, well set out with good balance of artefacts and information boards. Interactive stuff for kids too.  more »

Where to stay in Port Louis

Port Louis doesn't have a huge range of places to stay--and the city is not the most bustling after dark. Still, you'll find a couple of options here and there. On the waterfront, a few viable luxury lodgings offer amenities such as annexed seafood restaurants, bars, and air conditioning. Alternatively, head farther down the coast for numerous better value options in dedicated tourist resorts. Even relatively small fishing villages have some decent homestay or guesthouse lodgings.
