This is the harbour at Port Louis, THE WATERFRONT.

Port Louis (pronounced locally as paw-louee) is the capital of Mauritius. It is a port on the Indian Ocean, and the nation's largest city and main port. It is located in the Port Louis District.
Port Louis is surrounded by a mountain range, called the Port Louis Moka Range.
Citizens often climb up the Signaux mountain, which is a 3 km track, that leads to over 300 metres high. From there, one can appreciate the landscape of the city.

Lovely fresh fruit juice!!!!!!

The capital has also three museums which are: the Mauritius Natural History Museum, the Blue Penny Museum and the Mauritius Stamp Museum. The biggest and oldest post office in Mauritius is found near the Caudan Waterfront. Situated in the heart of the city
Port Louis is the busiest city of the country. It faces heavy traffic congestion as there is only one motorway which leads in and out of the city.
