The Black River District—the third largest district in the country—is home to one of the smallest populations in Mauritius. But its beautiful rural landscapes, dry climate and outdoor activities make it a favorite among travelers.
Those in search of outdoor adventure can head to the area's coast and embark on a big-game fishing excursion. Nearby warm waters attract some of the best catches, and local charters know where to go to find tuna, sharks and even dolphins. Those looking to stay dry can head to the district’s scenic Casela Nature Park, where a network of epic trails, steep mountain climbs and beautiful canyons make it the perfect destination for land-loving travelers. The shores of Tamarin, One Eye, Kei Sei and Flic-en-Flac offer the best of both worlds, with white sandy beaches and cool ocean waters perfect for surfing, stand-up paddle boarding and scuba diving, too.
The Black River District is easy to access from the capital city of Port Louis, as the city’s western edge is part of the district. Because the area receives little rain, you can visit any time of year.
