    Gris-Gris beach

Gris Gris is located close to the southernmost part of the island, off the historical village of Souillac which dates back from the days of the then French Isle de France. Offering a total contrast to the calm lagoons that almost circle the island, windswept Gris Gris offers spectacular views on an exceptional black lava cliff coastline, with wild rollers gushing in from the ocean into the cove they have patiently carved out from volcanic rocks. From the grassy cliff top viewpoint, one can go down to sea level and a unique sandy beach by way of a flight of some seventy man-made steps and natural paths imprinted across the landscape across centuries of animal and human use.


Further to the East, the high rocky coastline goes on, punctuated by a series of natural attractions, namely La Roche qui Pleure (the weeping rock), Le Souffleur (the blower), Le Pont Naturel (the natural bridge).


On the way to Gris Gris, one can visit La Nef – a small museum established in the former home of Mauritian poet Robert Edward Hart and dedicated to him. Another interesting stop is the picturesque Telfair Garden which goes by the name of a French naturalist who settled down on the coast to create a sugar estate further to the West. Telfair garden contains a majestic banyan tree and walking path link it to an ancient community laundry going by its French noun “Le Lavoir”.
