3. Discovering Lighthouse Island

The island of Île aux Fouquets, also known as Lighthouse Island, is of coral origin and gets its name from the lighthouse that was built there. This is a relic from the time when the main harbor was located on the southeast side of Mauritius and navigated ships through the coral reef. Today, the lighthouse is a ruin and a great photo location.
