Welcome to Moka


Those who enjoy seeking out some culture along with their sunshine holiday should visit the town of Moka, seven miles (12km) south of Port Louis; Moka is not only Mauritius' academic centre but also blessed with some beautiful scenery and impressive historic manor houses. Home of the University of Mauritius and the Mahatma Ghandi Institute, the town is tasked with preserving the island's Indian culture. There is an Indian folk museum to visit, and the Eureka House (now a museum) dating from 1830. Moka can be reached by bus or taxi from Port Louis or Curepipe.
