Bury your feet in the silky, white sand and sip an exotic cocktail as the sun sparks a brilliant display of reds and oranges on the horizon.

  • Vieux Grand Port

    Just across the lagoon is the tiny Island aux Aigrettes, a protected natural park. Here you will discover indigenous plants and animals, some of which have come back from the brink of extinction. We love taking the boat to this coral island to see rare animals like the Mauritius kestrel, the pink pigeon, and giant tortoises. Wander under a canopy of beautiful, exotic trees with funny names like pipe wood, rat wood, and bottle palm, and see the rare delights of an exotic orchid in full bloom.

  • Ylang Spa

    Called the `cradle of Mauritian history', Vieux Grand Port is where people first settled when arriving on the island. The ruins tell the sweeping story of Mauritius and its occupants, from French to Dutch colonial rule. There are 18th century ruins dating back to the French, although the foundations of the Vieux Grand Port are 17th century Dutch. See the jetty the Dutch built from stone in the lagoon in front of the port.
