The south is currently the least-developed and most authentic region of Mauritius. The vegetation here is richest, due to high humidity all year, and contains many indigenous trees and plants. Driving along the south coast is a great experience, allowing you to alternate between astonishing sea and hill views; and between sunbathing and trekking.
The beach of Pointe d'Esny is said to be the best spot for lazy summer days, found beyond the stunning jagged cliffs which slope away upon reaching the shimmering waters of Blue Bay. The South demonstrates influences which range from the Caribbean to Ireland and India, and it is this ehich seems to be the main draw for many of the tourists that frequent this region.
Although mostly undeveloped, there are a few luxury resorts which have found their way to the ruggedly beautiful south, allowing guests to this part the best of both worlds.
