Souillac and the Southeast Travel Guide

Souillac and the Southeast

Until recently, the Southeast part of Mauritius has managed to go unnoticed by developers, but now the region has a few of the most renowned hotels on the island. The main attraction here is the historical village of Mahébourg, named for Bertrand François Mahé de La Bourdonnais, one of the most successful governors during French rule. Mahébourg still bears the mark of both the French and Dutch settlers, and today it's a bustling waterfront neighborhood, attracting visitors who seek a more remote getaway than villages in the north and west.
