  • For me a must visit charged with emotion, it is a place that historically represented a lot of thing to Mauritius but also for human rights.

  • To understand the island culture atmosphere, start with the tour of Port Louis and the Aapravasi Ghat. Very understandable without a guide, free and cool.

  • It’s not very easy to locate it as it’s hidden behind other buildings and next to the port. The walls are there and they re-build a few rooms inside, so don’t get too excited.  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.
