Overall Guide : Windswept with minimal foliage, Port Louis is covered in ‘Diddle Dee’, a small shrub with red berries. Enriched with antique buildings that capture the imagination and wonder of tourists, this charming little settlement boasts of a rich history. When in... more Port Louis, Volunteer Beach is a must-visit. Further east of the settlement, this beach provides shelter to more than 150 breeding pairs of king penguins; it is a sanctuary to the islands’ penguin pairs who breed and is the largest on the island. A long walk from Volunteer Beach, takes you to Volunteer Point where you can observe the offshore breeding colony of southern fur seals; this equally enchanting sight is memorable and exciting. Another must-see location is Volunteer Lagoon which provides glimpses of elephant seals. Walk around the settlement and experience the historical wonders of this sheep-friendly hamlet or capture the sights of the wildlife that is typical to this region.
