Touring Mahebourg can prove to be pretty tiring because of the numerous historical sites and spellbinding sights the place has in store for you. This makes the need for a relaxing spot a dire necessity for the tourists where they can catch their breath again. Mahebourg Waterfront tick all the boxes in this regard and fact has a lot more to offer you than you can think – the unmatched location just at the edge of the ocean, the fresh breeze blowing and cooling off all the stress away, very friendly locals who never cringe away from helping the new ones around the place while sharing their fair grasp of historical knowledge related to the region.

There’s another vital reason for the vast popularity of the Mahebourg Waterfront - Sir Gaetan Duval Esplanade. It is one of the most iconic attractions in all of Mauritius where you get the chance to learn about the great battle at Grand Port which is significant in the history of Mauritius. To commemorate the soldiers who lost their lives during the battle, a memorial has been built in their honour along with a nautical map describing the events dating back to years. Cobbled pathways and old signs lead to the famous landmark known as the “Bataille de la Passe”.
The boardwalk of Mahebourg Waterfront was inaugurated in 2002. It starts at the Mahebourg Social Welfare towards the west of Ile aux Aigrettes and goes all the way to the bus terminal situated at the westernmost tip of the region. Quite impressive, it is also fitted with a stunning coastal gazebo!
Whether you are enjoying the fresh coconut water being sold beside the road or getting your taste buds tickled by the locally authentic food “Gateau Merveille”, the surreal views of the Mouchoir Rouge and Ile au Phare islets will make your day!
Visit any time of the day you want to, let the freshness sink in, and Mahebourg Waterfront will be a worth remembering venture for you!
