Stopped here for about 15 mins on a tour. Beautiful views and lucky enough to spot some monkeys. Some people fed them but they do say not to or get too close. Lots of souvenir stalls on route to the viewpoint.

We stopped off briefly at the viewpoint overlooking the Black River Gorge. It is breathtaking - watching White Tailed Tropic Birds soar above the trees and playful monkeys close to the view point (do not feed)! If returning to the island, it will be nice...More

If you go for nothing more than the view, you cannot fail to have your breath taken from you. The photo's cannot do this justice I'm afraid, but have included a couple anyway (I took so many!) Stayed for sometime here, just gazing out over...More

Definitely a must see in Mauritius if you like to experience nature. For an easy walk with spectacular views go to Petrin and walk to Macchabee view point. A little up and down on comfortable paths. For the more adventurous try the Macchabee forest trail...More
