Visit the Telfair garden in Souillac

The sound of the waves, the songs of birds and the hundred-year-old trees, make the Telfair garden a haven of serenity in the heart of southern Mauritius.

Riding an electric bike

With or without a guide, the electric bike rides are pleasant without too much effort and allow the visitors to appreciate the landscapes of the Southwest!

Swimming at Saint-Félix beach

This fine sandy beach is perhaps one of the most paradisiacal in all of Mauritius. Both Mauritians and tourists are amazed by this postcard landscape!

“Debout entre les Plaines-Wilhems et la Rivière-Noire, dominant de loin la mer, et dressée vers le ciel, couleur de clématite, la voici, ce matin, bleuâtre et verte, modelée comme un visage humain, estompée de nuages vermeils.” - Robert Edward Hart
