If there is a paradise on earth, it is the beach of Trou aux Biches. Ideally located in the northwest part of the island, Trou aux Biches beach is a 3 kilometre long beach and enjoys a more stable climate than other areas, less watered and less windy. Trou aux Biches is a world famous spot for its diving sites where you can discover a wide variety of fauna and flora underwater. It is also the starting point for boat trips to the northern islands (Gunner’s quoin Island, Flat Island, Gabriel Island, Round Island, Snake Island).
The North of Mauritius is not limited to its magnificent beaches. Inland, the botanical garden of Pamplemousses, created in the eighteenth century by the botanist Pierre Poivre, is one of the most popular sites on the island. A few metres away you can discover an old sugar factory converted into a museum on the site of L’Aventure du Sucre. This site demonstrates the importance of sugar cane in the history of Mauritius.
