  • After going for days to go to the beach one decided to visit. Very affordable price to ensure the survival of this small museum. The guided tour and the Nice super guide. We've learned lots of things. The children really enjoyed as simple and fast. In short, you really stop and it allows to save the Mauritian heritage!
