Mauritius Off The Beaten Path: 52 reviews and 67 photos

  Picturesque Church
by canuckmike

At northernmost point of the island is Cap Malheureux. The main reason to come here is for the picturesque red roofed church. If you are into photography you will have to come here for that. According to local legend this is where Virginie (Paul et Virginie) washed ashore after the St. Geran sunk. It is also here that the British landed in 1810 to capture the island.
