Pont Naturel, also known as ‘the Natural Bridge’, shows that Mauritius can be very divers. Not all coastlines on the island consist of white sand beaches. There are also places where the sea is rough. Pont Naturel is one of those places. And still, it’s just as beautiful as one of those white sand beaches! Located in the south-east coast of Mauritius it consists of a kilometer of long rocky coastline with big waves crushing hard against the rocks. This has been going on for ages and therefore created an impressive coastline.
Pont Naturel is not a nice tropical beach or a green forest – things that pop up when you think of Mauritius – but cliffs and rough sea. We are convinced that Pont Naturel is a must see, for the beauty of the cliffs and the waves in combination with the quietness. The big waves crashing everywhere around you on the rocks make it possible that you can sit here and take your time for a while and watch the ocean.
A natural bridge is one element of this coastline you can also combine Pont Naturel with Le Souffleur, a similar place that lies about one kilometre to the west. Le Souffleur does not have a natural bridge but some natural showers coming through the rocks. Le Souffleur is a big cliff where the rough sea crashes against the lava rocks creating beautiful fountains of water, almost looking like a ballet of water. Between the rocks some water finds its way to the top as well, looking like a geyser. The water at this coastline is always rough. The pureness and the power of nature can be witnessed here best.
