Have you ever looked at a postcard sunset and wondered if it truly was that magnificent? Iím sure all of us have.

With a coastline stretching to about 13 Kilometers, it offers what most of the other coastal towns do but every turn you take and every place you stop you are only witnessing the awe of nature and itís fine way to foster eunoia within you. It is Joie de vivre people; through and through.
Imagine! Imagine yourself. You are surrounded by the ocean. Surrounded by pristine blue water, that is glimmering. Imagine the warmth of the sun, on your skin. Imagine the cool breeze, accompanying the golden rays. Walking amidst hawkers, who add colour to these busy lanes. Imagine yourself, surrounded by the remains of a glorious past, yet feeling the immense magnitude of emotions the foreseeable future offers you. What your imagination has lead you to, is one of the most beautiful cities in the world, Port Louis in Mauritius. It is vibrant, modern, and much more. Imagine paradise. Imagine Port Louis, Mauritius.
Mahebourg oozes the charm of a small quaint town located on the coast. It lays in the southeastern part of the island with just 16,000 residents. Its French roots from its colonial past are reflected in its streets, and old style architecture. Not just this, the National History Museum tracing the maritime history of the Island and the Rault biscuit factory from 1870 (whose cassava recipe is still kept secret) are eye-catching. The laidback lifestyle can be enjoyed through its spicy street food, lively restaurants, colorful stalls, busy markets, and the nearby Nature Reserve set against an idyllic backdrop of turquoise blue water and scenic beaches completes it.
