Curepipe in detail

Flights & getting there

Curepipe lies just off the main route between Port Louis and the airport, with plenty of buses travelling in either direction. Taxis are another option.


Curepipe is an important transport hub, with frequent bus services to Port Louis (Victoria Sq), Mahébourg, Centre de Flacq, Moka and just about anywhere else on the island. There are two terminals: the northbound and the southbound. Most services go from the northbound (Port Louis, Rose Hill, Quatre Bornes); Mahébourg is served from the southbound. The terminals lie on either side of Châsteauneuf St, at the junction with Jerningham St.


From Curepipe, expect to pay Rs 1100 for a taxi ride to the airport, Rs 1850 to Grand Baie, Rs 1750 to Belle Mare, Rs 1100 to Port Louis, Rs 1100 to Flic en Flac and Rs 700 to Black River (Rivière Noire).
