Reviewed 27 October 2016

There is an information center at the car park - with quite a lot of info on Mauritian wild life and you also get a map though not really needed. There are 2 trails: a loop of 7km and a shorter one where you walk return. I walked with my 2 children (7 and 5) and we did the grand tour (though not all the way to the beach) - my 7 year old was fine but my 5 year old was a bit fed up at the end. Wildlife like there isn't much to see - but as a family we enjoy the nature so it didn't really matter. The kids found lots of things to look at. There are a few water points and picnic areas a long the way. It gets hot so bring lots of water (there are bins along the way), it's a nice place to picnic if you fancy that, but bring mosquitos repellent as it gets humid in there. (I wouldn't recommend going when it has just rained). The signage is pretty clear but the terrain is very uneven - there are some easy paths and some more challenging ones (I mean for smaller kids). It took us 3 hours at a slow pace to walk around, had a few stops on the way too. All in all it's not amazing because of the lack of wildlife, but it is a decent morning walk if the kids have some energy to burn off!

Whilst retaining biosphere of habitat is important, the hike through Bra d'Eau is neither scenic nor particularly engaging. The beach it ends at is nothing special, nor are the couple of ponds that you pass on the way. Had it not been for the troop of monkeys that we encountered early in the walk, we would have left very disappointed.

Thank Silex
