Paul et Virginie, the romantic novel by Jacques-Henri Bernadin de Saint Pierre, set in Mauritius during the time of French rule and published in 1787, was inspired by the real-life sinking of the St Geran, wrecked off the coast at Poudre d?Or. There is a monument to this event at Poudre d?Or Beach, where there is also a waterfront park; a pleasant spot to enjoy a picnic under the trees. The village of Poudre d?Or has an attractive church, and the bustling city of Goodlands is only a couple of kilometres away.
Ile aux Cerfs
Known in English as Deer Island, Ile aux Cerfs is famous for its sandy beaches, beautiful lagoon and wide selection of activities such as snorkelling and boating. The island is small and the only method of access is by ferry from Trou d'Eau Douce or by speedboat. The ocean here is very shallow, and it is possible to walk 100 metres or more into the sea, making this a very safe place to swim and enjoy water activities. There are no longer any deer on the island, but it is a popular destination and very photogenic.
The capital city and main port of Mauritius, Port Louis was founded in 1735 by the French governor Mahe de Labourdonnais. After the French came the British, who built Fort Adelaide a century later; this still dominates the city. Port Louis? main tourist attractions include the Caudan Waterfront, Port Louis Bazaar, the Police Barracks, Chinatown and the old Port Louis Theatre. The old Post Office near the Caudan Waterfront is another attraction, while a number of French and English colonial buildings reside along the seafront and city centre enhancing the charm of this harbour city.
Cap Malheureux and Coin de Mire
The pretty red-roofed Roman Catholic church has made the fishing village of Cap Malheureux one of the most recognised destinations in Mauritius. The name of the village in English is Cape Unlucky, because of the shipwrecks that occurred offshore during the colonial period. This is a historic spot, as the British troops landed here in 1810 on their way to Port Louis, where they seized control of the island. Coin de Mire, also known as Gunner's Quoin, a tiny island with the remnants of a sugar plantation set up by Dutch settlers is a few kilometres offshore.
Domaine de l?Etoile
Paul and Virginie was made into a film in 1972, with the movie being shot on Mauritius and much of the action taking place at Domaine de l?Etoile. A wooden cabin with a huge veranda was part of the set, and can be visited today as the centrepiece of a nature park rich in flora and fauna. Hiking, mountain biking, quad biking and horse riding are amongst the activities here, and there are still plantations where people use sickle and wicker baskets to harvest and transport the sugar cane. Special tours can be arranged to the battleground where the British and French fought in 1810.
