Cap Malheureux Holidays

Along the wilder northern Mauritian coast, in between rocky coves and tidal creeks, is the tiny fishing village of Cap Malheureux.

We love the authenticity of this village and the quiet, subdued charm of it's white sand beach. Head for the recognisable, red-roofed Notre Dame Auxiliatrice for spectacular views across the islands of Coin de Mire ôl Ronde and l'Ile aux Serpents. Watch the fishermen from the village as they bring home their catch of the day each afternoon and sit back to enjoy stunning vistas over the Indian Ocean as the sun dips below the horizon.

Combine your relaxing stay in Mauritius with a trip to the historical country of Sri Lanka, where you can watch leopards, spot elephants, and experience fascinating game drives.
