Worth knowing about:

 

Blue Bay Marine Park:

The Blue Bay Marine Park is the largest coral garden and largest marine reserve in Mauritius. The 353 ha large area is located in the southeast of Mauritius near the town of Mahebourg. Through the protected location and the perfect water conditions inside the lagoon more than 38 different types of corals and 72 different fish species have been discovered so far. The most common corals are the table coral, the stag horn coral, the stone wash coral and the fire coral. The most famous coral in Blue Bay is the giant, white brain coral with a diameter of 5m. The coral is more than 1,000 years old and grows only about 5 mm per year and is the largest known brain coral in the entire Indian Ocean. Since 1997 the Blue Bay Marine Park has been under the permanent protection of the Mauritius Fisheries and Port Authority. Through this it has become the most important retreat and breeding area for many fish species. Regularly seen fishes are the butterfly fish, the rainbow fish, the parrot fish or the trumpet fish. But also barracudas with a length of 2m are living in the up to 13m deep environment. Another highlight is that even sea turtles have returned to the ​​Blue Bay Marine Park. Up to know, 7 sea turtles are known and regularly seen.

Île aux Fouquets – Île aux Phare:

Ile aux Fouquets is another small rocky island, located in the district from Grand-Port in the South-East of Mauritius. Together with Ile aux Vacoas and Ile de la Passe, Ile aux Fouquets is the third island inside this island chain. Discovered was Ile aux Fouquets together with the Dutch settlers in the year 1598. For a long time, Ile aux Fouquets hasn´t played a strategic role. The passage at the neighbour island, Ile de la Passe, was the entrance for bigger boats into the lagoon, along their way to Mahébourg. Mahébourg was founded as a small settlement of the first Dutch settlers in the year 1589. The current name comes from the French Admiral & Gouverneur Mahe de Labourdonnaisas during the French colonial time. For a long time, Mahébourg was an important port and the capital from Mauritius. To ensure a secure arrival in the harbour at night and to warn about the dangerous riff around the coast, the British administration has constructed a lighthouse on Ile aux Fouquets in the year 1864. Through this building the island has gained in importance and is since then known, under the todays more common name Lighthouse Island / Ile aux Phare. Since its construcion the lighthouse was continuously groomed and operated up to the early 20th century. With the move from all port operations from Mahébourg to Port Louis, the lighthouse building was given up and is since then falling apart. Today only a ruin is remaining.

Grand-River-South-East:

The Grand-River-South-East is the biggest river from Mauritius with a total lenght of 34km. The sources from the river are located in the high-plateau from Central Mauritius. The water of the river on its way to the ocean is getting collected in two reservoirs. First in the Midlands-Dam and further downstream in the Diamamouve Reservoir. A beautiful highlightt is the Grand-River-South-East Waterfall, located near the river estuary. After all, at the end of a small sea arm, the water flows into the Indian-Ocean. The village at this place was named after the river: Grand-River-South-East.

Île aux Cerfs:

Île aux Cerfs is a 87 hectar large island, placed inside the biggest lagoon and within the big outside riff from Mauritius. Regionally, Île aux Cerfs belongs to the district of Flacq, in East Mauritius. The nearest bigger city on the main-island is Trou d´Eau Douce. The island got its name from the Java Deers, which where introduced for hunting on the island, from the Dutch settlers in the early 17th century. Nowadays, there are no more Deers on the island. The vegitation is characterized from horsetail leaved casuarine trees (casuarinaceae), palm trees and large mangroove forests. Île aux Cerfs is famous for its fine white sandy beaches and a popular excursion-destination for local people and tourists. The island is property of to the mauritian government and is uninhabitant. The touristic development from Île aux Cerfs has started in the year 1985. Since then the Sun Resort Hotel Group Ltd is leasing the island from the mauritian government. In the year 1998 they have started to built an 18 hole championship golf course, after a concept from the German profi golfer, Bernhard Langer. The dimension of the golf-course is 40 hectar, and 20 hectar forest had to be cut down. Against many protests from politicians and nature-protectors, the Minister of Tourism has approved the project at the end. In the following years the condition of the flora and fauna has steady deteriorated. Today, the Mauritius Tourism Promotion Authority has set rules for the preservation of the environment on Île aux Cerfs. For example: Open fire and BBQ´s are just allowed in a special approved area on one side from the island. It is forbidden to construct new buildings and the access to the island is only allowed with licenst tourist-guides.
