Mauritius is known for its spectacular beauty. The abundance of natural beauty undoubtedly makes this country one of the most picturesque places in the world. Here, you will find the perfect shorelines with white sands, the luxurious hotel rooms with sceneries never seen before, a cuisine so mouthwatering that you will surely leave the place with your stomach satiated.
Adding to these lovely sites is the Alexandra Falls Viewpoint waterfall. The best thing about this waterfall is that it can be visited at any time of the year. Visit this cascade to have a breathtaking view of the cloud forest of Mt Cocotte standing tall at 771 meters.
Hidden deep in the jungle of the Black River Gorges National Park, Alexandra Falls is something straight out of an Indiana Jones movie scene (although it will be a relief for you to know there will not be any ugly spiders, the size of humans, over there).
Moving on, you will come across a bridge where a little stream flows. A bridge and a couple of stairs will lead you to the viewpoint. This will hardly take 5 minutes. Once you are there, there is a wooden platform for you to take in the full view of the South-east coast and the turquoise blue ocean. Admire it all you can. Do not miss the chance to capture it on your camera and show it off on social media.
You will be able to spot the falls from where you stand. From there, the waterfall will look like a silent white stream dropping over giant rocks. You will catch the view of Mauritius' virgin green valley which houses an extensive collection of endemic flora and fauna. These eye-catching attractions are a treat for sore eyes.
