POV (William Rasoanaivo) is a well-known cartoonist in the region, here is a scene from life in Pamplemousses that he illustrated.

With its rich historical heritage, the Pamplemousses region, where Beau Plan is located, was a center of Mauritian life in the 18th century, when Mauritius was still a French colony.

It was here, in particular, that the residence of Mahé de Labourdonnais was located. Governor General of the Mascareignes from 1735 to 1746, he established Mauritius (formerly known as Isle de France) as a leading French colony in the Indian Ocean. His home, now known as the Château de Labourdonnais, has been restored and is one of Mauritius’s must-see tourist attractions.

His successor, Pierre Poivre, laid out a botanical garden in the area that made his name: the Jardin de Pamplemousses (renamed Sir Seewoosagur Ramgoolam Botanical Garden in 1988). Populated by citrus fruits and spices from the Orient, exotic flowers and rare plant species, it is particularly famous for its pond of giant water lilies, the Victoria amazonica.

The Beau Plan region is also home to centuries-old relics of industrial activity. In addition to the ruins of its former hospital and railroad tracks, the area is home to renowned former colonial mansions such as La Villebague and Le Mauricia, as well as the industrial heritage of the twice-century-old Terra group: its former garages and warehouses now converted into shops and offices, its old factory transformed into a museum, L’Aventure du Sucre, and its former dock now the Lac de Beau Plan, the vibrant heart of the smart city.

Whether it’s for a few hours’ excursion or a longer stay in this region of northern Mauritius, there’s plenty to do and discover.

In Beau Plan and the surrounding area, tourists will find plenty to learn about the country’s history. In fact, it offers a number of sightseeing tours that reveal the full beauty of the destination. The Musée de L’Aventure du Sucre recounts the evolution of Mauritius through that of the sugar industry, while the Jardin botanique de Pamplemousses, bordered by the centuries-old village of Pamplemousses, invites visitors to take a plunge into history. The colonial mansions that dot the region, the centuries-old trees that line its roads and the relics that dot its landscapes give this region an authentic and charming cachet.

After a day of sightseeing in the north of the island, Beau Plan is the perfect destination to relax and relive the best moments of these excursions. The restaurants of the Mahogany Shopping Promenade invite you to refresh yourself while enjoying the view of Beau Plan lake as the sun sets.
