The open sea, what say freedom !
There are several options you can consider :
Rent a boat for the day with a skipper to sail you to magic places in the North like Bernache Island, Gunner’s Coin and its neighbouring islands, or even more impressive Le Morne down South. For the more sportif, a fishing party to one of the islands is essential or even lunch on one of the islands or just admire the sunset on board a Catamaran or speed boat with refreshments of your choice.

THE MAURITIAN ARTISTS
Mauritius possesses many cultures, beliefs and values which are precious to the well being of this nation. She also has an abundance of treasures to share for little if you wish to take the time. It is not only about the beaches but there are a number of art galleries around the island. You are invited to discover on the North coast some of our artists, one of which is the well known Vaco, a specialist in the art of painting Mauritius in a multitude of colours. The Gallery Helene de Senneville, is where a great number of Mauritian artists expose their works and where you can find the paintings of the famous Malcolm de Chazal, as well as landscapes by artist Jocelyn Thomas set in bright colours, and many others. The Gallery of Moulin Cassé should not be missed as it is situated in an old colonial sugar cane mill in a big tropical family property where the ceiling is unique and famous for its dome made up of thousands of inverted clay pots . There you will marvel at the wonderful photos of Diane Henry.
Situated in a heritage building in the capital of Port Louis, you will discover the great names of the contemporary art of the region and especially the renowned artist Salim Currimjee. If you are on the West coast, it is worth spending some time at Ruisseau Créole and visit the Gallery 3A where sculptures, photos and paintings offer a great diversity of our contemporary art. On the South coast please stop at the exhibition by Rirette Faron to admire her paintings which reflect the soul of the Mauritians.
