Port Louis is a small town of fishermen and farmers. The town center is a long straight street, with a beautiful church in the middle. This street is lined with low houses slightly retro and represents a pleasant little stroll. It is decorated with very ornate street lamps which give it a old world charm.
The city is very proud, one of the bastions of the independence and anti colonialism movement. In 1943 its inhabitants raided the police station of the Vichy government... Respect!!!
Going along the seafront to the north, we find the beach of the Souffleur beautiful stretch of golden sand with translucent waters. This is a great place to cool off and snorkeling around. The beach has ample parking with fee during the weekend, as the place is very busy these days!
