Waterfront was very neat with walkways with monuments. Good market, I bought dhall puri street food. Bus Terminal in the vicinity. Used the bus to get to Blue Bay, cheaply.

It is next to the bus station, and during the day it can be okay. But at night, there is less lighting and it does not feel safe. I saw a man exercising, and groups walking around. But the safety of ladiea may be compromised.

The best waterfront in Mauritius! A splendid view of a historically defining bay where the French naval forces won a pyrrhic victory over the British in 1810... Plus the calm ambience, far away from crowds and all.
