Cap Malheureux – Cape of Bad Luck

You have heard about Cape of Good Hope. What about Cape of Bad Luck? I hadn’t heard about it till I visited Mauritius.

Cap Malheureux or Cape of Bad Luck is the Northernmost point in the Indian Ocean island country of Mauritius.

It is a very picturesque waterfront and definitely worth a visit. There is also a quaint little red-tiled church of Notre Dame.

In a battle in 1815, the French lost the battle and the island to the British. Hence the name.
