Mauritius has great diversity - from white sand beaches and water sports to tropical forests and remnants of its colonial history. The starting place for most adventures in Mauritius starts in the capital - Port Louis. Named after the French ruler King Louis XV, Port Louis was founded by the French around the year 1735, so that their ships could halt for a while before continuing their journey around the Cape of Good Hope.
Surrounding Port Louis is the Port Louis Moka mountain range. Le Pouce and Pieter Both are two famous and important peaks, and the latter towers 800 meters above sea level.
