Cap Malheureux Vacation Packages
Nestled amid rocky coves, Cap Malheureux is an ideal Mauritian beach destination. Enjoy idyllic swimming coves, rest in a cozy guesthouse, savor fresh local dishes, admire the village’s famous church and take an unforgettable sailing tour.
At sheltered Cap Malheureux Beach, visit the village’s landmark Notre Dame Auxiliatrice Chapel with its red tiled roof, charming white façade, ornately decorated interior and ocean vistas. Capture photographs of beautiful moments near this distinctive church. As you gaze over the cove, notice distant Coin de Mire Island and spot local fishermen hauling in their catch of the day. Stroll along the jetty to buy fresh pineapple and papaya from a local street vendor and cool down under the bright sun, as you enjoy the refreshing sweetness of these tropical fruits.
For an invigorating swim, head north from Notre Dame Auxiliatrice Chapel along the sandy bay for 1,000 feet (300 meters) to Pointe aux Roches Beach. This swimming spot is less crowded than Cap Malheureux Beach. Relax on its soft sand. Swim with care in clear waters but be aware that currents can be strong here.
Book a private cruise over the sparkling ocean with one of the village’s reputable catamaran tour companies. Enjoy a barbecue lunch on your luxurious catamaran, as you cruise from Cap Malheureux Pier to famous Flat Island. Swim and snorkel off this small, tranquil island.
After your cruise, walk 5 minutes from the pier to pristine guesthouse accommodations. Lie back amid lush palms on your private rooftop terrace. Enjoy a glass of wine and panoramic views of the islands on the horizon.
Find adventure beyond the beach in Mauritius’ culinary delights. The village’s restaurants serve exceptional local mussels, prawns, lobster and fish. These restaurants are mostly small, family-run affairs creating meals lovingly cooked to order.
Reach Cap Malheureux by taxi, car or bus from Mauritius International Airport in 90 minutes. Visit this village at Mauritius’ northernmost tip for an unforgettable tropical vacation.
