There is no denying the magnificence of Mauritius’ beaches, with their long stretches of fine sands which gently plunges into turquoise blue waters. There is much more to Mauritius than just beaches which awaits discovery.
Black River Gorges
If you are craving for an absolute adventure then look no further than Black River Gorges. A strange name for a National Park, isn’t it? It almost covers 2% of the geographical area of Mauritius and is a home numerous waterfalls, rich flora and fauna and some of the endangered species of the island. You will be privileged to the sight of pink pigeons, wild boars and even the macaques. The park’s administration has created a pool of trek offerings which appeal to people of different interests. For spicy tales of the area, try hiring a guide from any of the park’s two tourist centers.
Situated at a convenient distance to the northeast of the Port Louis, the Pamplemousses is the richest Botanical Garden, you will ever see. Initiated in 1770, this gigantic 6200 acre garden is home to countless indigenous floras: lilly pads, lotus flowers and frangipani. This is not a stereotype botanical garden, so it should be approached with the right mind set or else it can potentially disappoint the visitors. Don’t anticipate a feast of multicolor flora since the Pamplemousse’s most elegant feature is its pool of endemic palm trees.
