Port Louis is the capital of the island state of Mauritius, located on the coast of the Indian Ocean. The city is surrounded by the mountains of Moka, so tourists come here for the magnificent scenery. The beaches are maintained in perfect condition. From Port Louis to Morne Braban, there is a road that is surrounded by beaches on one side and a mountain plateau on the other. We recommend to visit the sandy coasts of Flic-en-Flac or the wilderness of Tamarina bay. Families with children are ideally suited for the Cape Spice with a gentle entry into the water and a calm flow. Baie-o-Tortu Beach is considered to be a favorite spot of surfers, where they are constantly trying to conquer the wave.

Every year there are seasonal races and riding lessons. Especially active tourists can take a couple of individual lessons for themselves.
