Living in a Cité is what a great percentage of people in Mauritius do. Are you eager to explore beyond the boundaries of mainstream tourism? Come meet those who dwell in small houses, explore their way of life for a day. Visiting a well-organised Cité, we meet the people behind the shop, restaurant and souvenir production. Take advantage of this occasion, and sample the real thing. As you have the opportunity to directly purchase local products – your money goes straight to those who need it most. Lunch is taken at La Belle Creole Restaurant, owned by a Cité entrepreneur. To cool off, we go for a dip at nearby Pointe D’Esny Beach, where white sand meets turquoise waters and the great views of Lion Mountain and Aigrettes Island leave you breathless.
The Other Side is your choice of getting to know Mauritius on a profound level; looking at those places which are not visited by the average tourist and yet might provoke the deepest and most colourful memories of your island visit. If you want to bring a deeper meaning to your tropical holiday for a day, we take you along to do just that! TRIO Benefit: A part of your fee money will go into the support of teenage mothers in the Cité.
