We started 2017 literally on a high note with a helicopter flight over World Heritage Site La Morne Cultural Landscape.
Inside the Black River Gorges National Park you can see the highest waterfall in Mauritius (83 meters).

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.

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.
