We started 2017 literally on a high note with a helicopter flight over World Heritage Site La Morne Cultural Landscape.

For a different experience we decided to do a rum tasting session. Although the rums were quite young, the staff made it an enjoyable experience. The highest peak in Mauritius can be seen from the rhumerie.

This is a small area, but still interesting to see the many different colours formed by a natural phenomenon. There are also a few Giant Tortoises in the area.

Apparently, this is where the rich Mauritians live. The beach is very white, but like other beaches in Mauritius, it was coarse sand and quite rocky out in the water. Bring reef shoes.

Although Port Louis is the capital of Mauritius, there wasn't a lot on offer. We found it particularly hard to find good Creole food.

       
     
The Next Escape: Mauritius Underwater Waterfall

A helicopter tour around the southern tip of Mauritius to witness a phenomenon called the Underwater Waterfall. We were also able to check out the 7 Coloured Earths and Chamarel Waterfalls from above.
