Beyond its natural beauty, this area holds a rich tapestry of history waiting to be explored. From ancient settlement traces to the Creole culture, the past comes alive in this enchanting corner of the island. Mahebourg: A Living Chronicle of the Past: In the heart of the south-east lies the picturesque town of Mahébourg, where the island’s history comes alive. Once occupied by the Dutch during their short stay, the town’s “Arrival of the Dutch” monument commemorates their presence. Later, under the watchful eye of Mahé de La Bourdonnais, the town’s development flourished. From its initial name of Bourg-Mahé to the final homage as Mahébourg, the famous French governor’s legacy is imprinted on the town’s soul. Wandering through Mahébourg, you’ll be captivated by the remnants of French urbanization. The meticulously planned streets and spacious drains, a marvel of their time, showcase the town’s heritage. By the bus station, the remains of the old railway station stand as a reminder of a bygone era. Stroll towards the river La Chaux, and you’ll discover the quaint old washhouse, where time seems to stand still. Mahebourg offers a perfect blend of history, culture, and natural beauty, making it a must-visit destination for travelers seeking a memorable experience in Mauritius.
