Not far from the Botanical Garden of Pamplemousse, a bougainvillea and coconut trees alley, a pond lined with lush nature ... in this stunning tropical setting stands the massive renovated sugar mill which is one of the most spectacular attraction of the island! The tour begins with sound of the jungle and of the waves of the ocean in the huge factory, with its gigantic and machinery decked with a thousand lights : giant screens, movies, a barge floating and the sudden whistle of a railway engine. Experience an interactive and entertaining journey into the heart of Mauritius : its history closely linked to sugarcane, the secrets of sugar processing and the famous co-products of sugarcane (rum, electricity , natural fertilizers ...). Guided tour at no extra charge at 10:30am and 2:30pm from Monday to Thursday and 14:30 on Friday. Gourmet gifts at the boutique and tasty cuisine at the Restaurant le Fangourin or at its train station that offers homemade delicious takeaways .

Interesting piece of Mauritius history - the museum, where the whole process of sugar cane growing, processing (from plantation to the factory) and sugar production is presented in a very entertaining way. Also the shop where you can buy some sugar canebased products. Worth visiting.More

Anastabella was our guide. She was thorough, knowledgeable, and attentive to our need for questions. She threw in occasional humor which caught us by surprise to start, but then locked our attention to her informative presentation. Keep up the good work.

The bus doesn't go directly to the entrance. You'd need to take a bus to the Pamplemousses roundabout and walk to it from there. That would take no more than 10 minutes.
