Ile Phare
Also known as Ile aux Fouquets, Ile Phare was amongst the first ones to be discovered in 1598 by the Dutch settlers.

L'Ile Phare bears its name by virtue of a lighthouse built in 1864, which was still operational until beginning of the 20th century.

Historically, Ile au Phare, situated within the bay of Mahébourg has fulfilled a strategic purpose during the naval battles at Grand Port.
