Welcome to Mahebourg


The well-planned town centre of Mahebourg shows its heritage as a French and Dutch colony. The sleepy coastal town is a centre of local trade and is a popular tourist destination in Mauritius, despite its rather run-down facade. The town boasts a number of hotels and other accommodation, along with some good restaurants, a casino, and a Handicraft Museum that is among the best places to find a souvenir in Mauritius. Popular activities in Mahebourg include sailing, golf, scuba diving, and bicycling. Mahebourg is not known for its beaches, though there are excellent beaches nearby in Blue Bay.
