The West in detail

Flights & getting there

The main bus routes in western Mauritius are those from Port Louis down to the southern end of Black River (Rivière Noire). There is also a regular service between Quatre Bornes, on the Central Plateau, and Chamarel.

Your hotel or guesthouse should be able to arrange bike and car hire.

Note that there are only two petrol stations in the west: one at Flic en Flac and one in Rivière Noire.
