Crystal clear water laps at the sculpted rock near Ile aux Benitiers with the Morne in the distance…

The setting sun slips into the sea behind the iconic Ilot Benitiers rock in the southwest of Mauritius…

A White-tailed Tropicbird soars overhead. Species of seabirds such as these brought some of the first plant seeds to Mauritius, sequestered in their plumage…

Rocky outcrops litter the summit ridge of Round Island where a lofty view of Serpent Island awaits us…

Curvaceous canyons and sculptures are carved from the compacted volcanic ash of Round Island over time…

An endangered Hawksbill Turtle comes in for a closer view in the pass between Ile Plate and Ilot Gabriel…

The setting sun peaks out behind the cliffs of Flat Island on its way into the Indian Ocean…

The sparkling green Echo Parakeet nests high up in the native trees of the Black River Gorges…

The epic Chamarel Falls cascades down over different layers of volcanic rock…

Light falls upon forested slopes of the southeast…

The lava flows drop directly into the ocean at the reefless coast by Albion and Pointe aux Caves. Battering waves, weathering, and the hands of time have carved magnificent arches and sea caves into the volcanic rock.

One Eye peers out from its high perch on Le Morne mountain…


Wind rakes over a tide pool on Ilot Gabriel as the sun rises to the right of Serpent and Round Island…
