Port Louis

Getting there & away

Land

Bus

Port Louis’ two bus stations are both located in the city centre. Buses for northern and eastern destinations, such as Trou aux Biches, Grand Baie and Pamplemousses, leave from Immigration Square, northeast of the Central Market.

Buses for southern and western destinations, such as Mahébourg, Curepipe and Quatre Bornes, use the Victoria Square terminus just south of the centre.

The first departure on most routes is at about 6am; the last leaves at around 6pm.

Car

Car rental is expensive in Port Louis. You’ll find better rates in major tourist centres such as Grand Baie, Flic en Flac or Mahébourg. Given the size of the island, all car-rental agencies will deliver a car to your hotel anywhere on the island – therefore it makes sense to contact agencies outside the capital such as Beau Bassin’s Exodus Car Hire (454 4396; www.exoduscarhire.com) who will charge a small fee to bring the car to you.
