                                PORT LOUIS (Administrative Capital)
                                …high-rising towers compete with buildings from the colonial times. Port-Louis is quiet
                                after business hours and on week-ends, except when the Champs-de-Mars hosts the
                                very popular horse races.

                                CUREPIPE stretches diagonally across the island from Port-Louis, through Beau-Bassin,
                                Rose-Hill, Quatre-Bornes, Vacoas and Phoenix. The strangeness of the name 'Curepipe'
                                has given rise to fanciful etymologies. The most persistent one is that travellers used to
                                stop there to 'cure' their pipes! Curepipe today is an elegant residential town with prize
                                colonial houses, pleasant public gardens and an ultra-modern vegetable market! A
                                short drive around Curepipe brings you to Trou-aux-Cerfs, one of the most exciting
                                points of view of the island, and to the luscious tea plantations.

                                MAHEBOURG is named after the French governor Mahe de Labourdonnais. Visit the
                                Naval Museum, ... theatre of the sole victory of the Napoleonic fleet over the British -
                                an event commemorated by engravings in the Arc-de-Triomphe in Paris.

                                GRAND BAIE owes its popularity to the enchanting quality of its emerald waters and to
                                its liveliness by day or by night. It offers facilities for safe swimming, sailing,
                                windsurfing, and water skiing, helicopter excursions, deep sea angling and for boat
                                excursions to islands to the north of Mauritius: Gunners' Quoin, Flat Island, Round
                                Island, and Serpent Island.

                              Taste of the Mauritian Sega (Pronounced Saygah): It is a cry from the soul trying to
                              transcend the miseries and heartaches of life, while at the same time expressing the
                              universal human desire for joy and happiness
