We were at the waterfalls Rochester Falls with friends ... Little bit chaotic way in full cane field environment. Simply superb opportunity to dive from the top of the waterfall. Great experience! We ate deliciously sweet pineapple Victoria. Tip for lunch: We ate in a typical Mauritian restaurant «La Bonne Bouffe «.... Great price: 18 euros for 5 and delicious...
The visit to the tea plantation is very nice, we learn many things. After visiting the plantation and especially the factory we say that the quality is there. I suggest you get the complete offer: Museum + Tour + tasting. The tasting area at the top of the hill is sublime, like planting. And for the visit, the ideal is to do it in summer (November to March) or Wednesday or Thursday in winter. Outside you can visit but you will not see the machines running.
In the wild south, three supernatural phenomena encountered: The Suspension Bridge, the blower and the rock crying. The last two require the south swell for their names to be justified. The blower, you can sit for hours watching the waves crashing on the cliffs with extraordinary force expelling seawater jets at any splash. An obligatory stop in Gris-Gris is still very raw with its cliffs, its small beach, offers a splendid natural view; the rollers crashing , iodine and breath clean air , nothing like to relax with mother nature….
Crocodile & Giant Tortoises Park, hosted by bats in this great entertaining space, which will please young and old and has a very rich fauna and flora including a dense rainforest.
Cascades Rochester Road lined with sugar cane that goes down to the pelvis. The waterfall is not exceptional but rather original: it flows on a wall carved by erosion, such as wedding veil in Salazie
