Grand River South East
Visitors and locals alike enjoy navigating along the mouth of the Grand River, swimming and diving under its waterfall or having a picnic on the riverbanks. Outings to this popular beauty-spot can be organised with local operators from the village of Trou d’Eau Douce.
Victoria 1840, Trou d'Eau Douce
Victoria 1840 is an old sugar cane factory, classified as part of Mauritian heritage in its own right, which has been converted to house a fabulous contemporary art museum and a delightful restaurant.
There are vast swathes of spotless sandy beach on the east coast, running all the way down from Belle Mare through to Trou d’Eau Douce. The gently undulating sand tracks along this stunning coastline are often used by joggers, if you fancy bringing your running shoes on holiday with you. Alternatively, take time out simply to enjoy the spectacular surroundings. The beaches on this side of the island are, after all, some of Mauritius’ finest.
