Travel Type:
With friends / other travellers

Trip Type:
Sightseeing & culture Sports, adventure or outdoor activities

Customer Travel Tip: If you want relax or have some activity, stay on the western site of the island. However hire car near the airport as it will cost you unnecessarily to be transfered to and from the airport.

Liked: The ONS MOTEL and a dinner near by.

Disliked: Maybe due to extensive traveling experience could not find anything like or dislike about Mahebourg. It is a city of friendly , welcoming people. It feels very safe and relaxing all around the island, but there is nothing to do. 2.5 stopover stay felt like 1.5 day too long. Just could not get amused or exited. Although the crocodile / turtle park was nice.

Customer Travel Tip: Stay in Blue Bay if you want a beach holiday. Stay in Mahebourg

Liked: old traditional working town. People very friendly and it felt safe even in the dark.

Disliked: Barking dogs and the town is very unkempt. However bearing in mind you are in Africa, it is probably one of the best towns to visit.
