This industrial centre is the home of the Phoenix Brewery , located beside the M2 motorway, which brews Phoenix Beer and Blue Marlin. While Phoenix doesn’t hold much of interest for visitors (sadly the brewery is not open to the public), the Mauritius Glass Gallery (698 8007; adults/children Rs 50/25; 8am-4pm Mon-Fri, 8am-noon Sat), beside the brewery, produces unusual – and environmentally sound – souvenirs made from recycled glass. You can see them being made using traditional methods in the workshop, which also doubles as a small museum.
