After visiting the fort and the open church, we spent the rest of the day at Le Caudan Waterfront, one of the most popular shopping complexes in Mauritius. It houses a variety of clothing stores, restaurants, food court, footwear shops, shops for herbs, a movie theater and a Casino. As the name suggests, it is located at the water front gives a beautiful view from the restaurants and coffee shops.
Located in the capital town of Port Louis, Le Caudan Waterfront is technically Mauritius’s first shopping mall. It has a lovely Crafts Market that sells local jewellery, handicrafts and clothes. But hold on before you before you disregard it as just another swanky mall! The Le Caudan compound not only has a shopping arcade, but various parts of it are reminiscent of the island's history. For example, the current food court is housed in what was the first meteorological observatory of the Indian Ocean. The picturesque waterfront originally started out as a harbour for incoming and outgoing ships carrying bags of sugar, one of the biggest exports of Mauritius. It is easy to spend an afternoon here strolling the cobbled walkways and checking out the local shopping scene or just watching the sunset at the waterfront while nibbling on some snacks.Visit the Ile Aux Cerfs on a Catamaran

Thank you Travel Triangle, Seaside Holidays for being the facilitators of this trip! Had a wonderful experience overall!
This place is for all the city enthusiasts. We went for some shopping and enjoyed some international cuisine. This is the only place in Mauritius to offer different flavored sugar cane juices although Mauritius being famous for sugar cane production none is served locally. There is a street covered with umbrellas. You can also walk through a flee market.
