The Dormant Volcano of Trou Aux Cerf

Start your morning with a leisurely stroll around the crater of Trou Aux Cerf. A much-loved part of the city with stunning views, the dormant volcano is a charming gem overlooking the town of Curepipe and dominates the view over the island. This huge volcanic crater reveals the existence of the paradise island that was formed millions of years ago and is approximately 85 meters in depth and 300 meters wide.

The Ship Models Factory
The Ship Models Factory

Discover the handmade ship models at Voiliers de l’Ocean. This shop could be chosen as one of the most unusual places, giving visitors a real island feel. Watch how skilled local artisans perfect and craft scale models of historical ships, galleons and boats that were used to transport goods and produce to and from the island. Fitting one in your suitcase to take back home may prove difficult but the shop can make arrangements for your purchase to be shipped to you.

Curepipe Duty Free Boutiques

Moving on from the model ship factory, we will visit the town of Curepipe where you will discover a myriad of small boutiques in a tranquil atmosphere, with no pushy sellers, offering a wide range of goods from cashmere pashminas and garments to jewellery and souvenirs. Most of the shops have been operated for generations and provide the best quality of products exported from Europe and India that have been made using traditional skills and techniques. Indulge your loved one’s fantasies with fashionable times. Don’t forget to bring your passport, as duty-free shopping is widely available.

The colonial house of Domaine Des Aubineaux was built in 1872 out of teak and other local woods taken from demolished ships and is home to several antiques, furniture and paintings dated back to the 18th century.
The residence was one of the first to be equipped with electricity on the Island. It was inhabited by the Guimbeau family native of France and established in Mauritius for eight generations now.

There is also an insectarium hosting 25,000 species and a museum dedicated to the island’s native extinct flightless dodo bird.
