Cap Malheureux is a fishing village that holds massive importance in the history of Mauritius, as well as boasting of some of the best views on the northern side of the island, making it a tourist hotspot. The name Cap Malheureux translates to 'Cape of Misfortune', due to the overwhelming number of shipwrecks that happened off the coast of Cap Malheureux. Little more than an apathetic, backwater fishing village, Cap Malheureux has a certain charm to it that most big cities on the island lack. If you're on a trip to Mauritius, adding Cap Malheureux to your to-visit list is a must, not just because of the historical importance attached to the village, but also because of its laid-back, idyllic, inherently tropical feel that you most definitely don't want to miss out on. The fact that Cap Malheureux offers jaw-dropping views of some famous northern islands is a bonus!
