The sea-shore (which is un-developed) is a 5 minute walk away. The nearest Tourist Beaches of Blue Bay or Trou d' Deuce are a 20 minute drive along the coastal road, where you will discover long white sandy beaches with restaurants, bars and children's play areas.

Bird Watching and Animal Watching
Mauritius has some of the rarest birds on Earth. The Mauritius Kestrel, once the world's rarest bird, the Pink Pigeon and the Echo Parakeet, to name only a few, could be found here in the forested slopes of Lion & Bamboo mountains and the nature reserve of Kestrel Valley (formally Domaine du Chasseur)
There is plenty of wildlife resident in the area. You may spot Java deer, forest monkeys, feral pigs, hares, mongoose and tang. Fruit bats are the only mammals endemic to the island you will see them flying past you at night. One of the oldest creatures to inhabit the island is the giant tortoise. Other reptiles you will spot are the day-gecko, and skinks, which may be smaller, but are colourful and interesting to look at.
Trekking and Mountain Biking
The surrounding country side, is quite mountainous with forested valleys, rivers, sparkling clear streams and unexpected waterfalls. The exotic foliage is lush and tropical. Explore on your own or use our guide - there are many trails, of an easy or strenuous nature.
Bikes are available for hire on site. Use them for an invigorating off road adventure on the trails through the sugar cane fields and mountain slopes. You can also hire them for a leisurely trip to the local shop, or ride along the coastal road, with glorious ocean views.

Hi Maryline and Paul We just wanted to email to say thank you very much for being our hosts last week - we are sorry we did not get to say goodbye (our flight was quite early and we were in quite a bit of a rush!). Please also could you say thank you to Patrick for his kindness - it was great to meet you all (and DJ!). We really enjoyed our stay at Bungalow Shane. Hope you have had a lovely weekend! All the best, Madeleine and James Ralph Essex, UK
