Le Souffleur, Mauritius Overview

Major islands on the Southern coast of Mauritius were formed centuries ago by waves breaking against the cliffs. One among these is la Souffler, which was created when the rough sea crashed against hot lava rocks. So natural springs are a common sight here. The island's half-formed grotto-like structure has a natural geyser fountain which spouts water up to 20m high, one of the best views you wouldn't want to miss. The impressive cliff is situated between Souillac and Blue Bay and can be reached from L’Escalier.

The island doesn't have many activities to indulge in. You can go there and visit the cliff, that will be worth the adventure. When you head a little bit more than 1 km to the eastern side of the island, you will come across Pont Naturel, the naturally formed bridge.

Visit the bridge only if the seas aren't particularly rough. The bridge is worth a camera click which was formed when the roof collapsed on another which naturally created a recess. It won't take you more than an hour to check out the whole place.

If you are looking to visit a wild and rugged landscape, Le Souffleur is just the place for you. Don't worry if you fail to see the natural geyser fountain (due to low tides), the natural beauty itself and the adventure combined would be worth it.

How To Reach Le Souffleur

Just look for a sugarcane factory when in the village. A road past the factory will lead you to the cliff. It is recommended to get a car, a sturdy one which would cross unpaved paths. There are plenty of signs on the road that will lead you to your destination.
