Shopping Mall
“La Croisette is the most faithful representation of the Western World available in Mauritius. It is a wide, modern and well-maintained mall with many luxury shops, fine dining restaurants, and sophisticated public areas. Although it sure pleases, it is quite expensive for locals and is rather empty even on weekends.”
