Pinpointing this little gem located on the South West coast of the island because it is truly worth a visit or two! Once there, let your mind drift away in the stunning views it offers – a real feast for the eyes! The Macondé Point is part of one of the most scenic route of Mauritius. In Mauritius’ history, the Macondé Rock served as a shelter for slaves who managed somehow to run away from their masters; nowadays it does not serve any other purpose than being one of the top photo spot for tourists to stop by while on their road trips to the south of the island.
It is so popular that you might need to expect a crowd on top of the rock; especially during the weekends but we can’t blame anyone as the unobstructed view wins everyone’s heart! You’ll be amazed by how the calming waters of the West coast meet and merge with the wilderness of the south coast.
