Visited Mahebourg and Vieux Grand Port areas. Mahebourg is famous for the 1810 naval battle at Grand Port between the French navy and British Royal Navy. The Mahebourg naval museum is a must for any visitors and displays many artefacts found from shipwrecks in the bay.
Vieux Grand Port is the place where the first Dutch settlers built a fort around 1638. The fort was later enhanced and used by the French after the Dutch departed.
