  • After Pont Naturel, Le Souffleur is another piece of heaven on earth. Off-road path would require you to have a big wheel car like a 4X4, but it is worth visiting. Who would believe that the rock...

  • Reach the beautiful and wild south-east spot of Mauritius, Le Souffleur, by starting next to L'escalier's police station, take right after the roundabout, and pass through the Omnicane distillery factory and much more. Continue on the partly asphalted road, regularly crossed by trucks and lorries, rocky pathes through sugar cane fields, a gate with granted access through Savinia farm with cows on the right and a beautiful forest on the left. The roar of the waves crashing against the cliffs can already be heard at that point, encouraging and guiding visitors willing to discover more. Shall it be a first time or a regular comer, excitement will grow with the vibrations in the ground while approaching the spot. It will be a question of a few minutes before having the contentment of seeing the deep blue sea reaching the lava formed cliffs, salt sculpted rocks, arid to semi-arid sceneries. Get the chance to hear the wristling and view of the geyser of seawater sprouting though the naturally formed hole in the rocks when the tide is high or on rough sea episodes. On sunny, calm sea days and low tides: be the witness of sea turtles or parrotfishes reaching the surface of the blue waters and the famous Paille-en-Queue in the air. Inhale the salt and iodine charged air and experience magical and addictive moments with mother nature.
  • Look for the 'blowhole' and that's why it is named 'le souffleur'. It's a hidden treasure in the south coastline of Mauritius with gigantic waves crashing every few seconds against the lava rock offering a beautiful scenery of splashing water creating beautiful fountains which can reach up to 15m of height and its more spectacular during bad weather 😊. Here you can stay as long as you wish and enjoying the scene but some may be uncomfortable while the sea water spray blows in the air. It's an open space and you can visit anytime. Located in the south of Mauritius and more precisely in l'Escalier village via Omnicane Sugar Estate branch road. It is complicated by Google maps and faster if you goes by the unpaved and rocky roads which are surrounded by sugar cane fields. While driving you will come across many signs which will guide you to your destination. Lower cars are not advisable to take that route. No parking lot available as the path is rocky but you can park anywhere. You can have a short picnic break under the shades. On the same coastline about 1km you can visit Pont Naturel which is another mother nature beauty. Please for your own safety, respect the protection barrier and don't let kids alone.
