In the ‘highlands’ you will discover the island’s four other towns. In Quatre Bornes, head for the local market if you want to do some bargain-hunting. In Curepipe, where it is generally cooler than elsewhere on the island, try visiting the botanical gardens.
In the early evening the gardens of the Plaza – the municipal theatre of the town of Rose Hill – fill up with families who come to relax and enjoy an ice–cream. This is a heart-warming sight definitely worth beholding!
Vacoas, meanwhile, is most renowned for its Gymkhana Golf Club – the oldest in the southern hemisphere.
