  • Eureka is a beautiful estate house with a spectacular setting, below Junction Peak, south of Port Louis. It’s now a private museum, exhibiting antique furniture, chinaware, old photographs, books and other trappings of aristocratic life in the 1800s. 
  • Ile aux Aigrettes, 800 metres off Mauritius’s south-east coast, is a renowned nature reserve, home to some of the world’s rarest birds. Not the Dodo, obviously, that was wiped out in the 17th century. A Dodo’s skeleton is the star exhibit at the Natural History Museum in Port Louis. 
  • The Martello tower is a small defensive fort at La Preuneuse beach. Martello towers were built by the British during the Napoleonic Wars and there are such towers around the UK and Channel Islands, Ireland, South Africa, America, Canada and Minorca. The tower at La Preneuse is a museum. 
  • Ile aux Cerfs is a tiny wooded island near the east coast of Mauritius. It is a magnet for water-sports enthusiasts and golfers. The beach is gorgeous.
