Seashells in Mauritius

"She sells sea shells on the sea shore..."

At l'Argonaute in Port Louis, you could almost hear the waves crashing softly on the shore and the salty smell of the sea breeze, given its very wide variety of sea shells!

Set on two floors in an old colonial building by the harbour front, you will be amazed by the collection of seashells, table lamps, notebooks and trendy accessories like exotic necklaces, dangling earrings and bracelets!

Tip: Do not miss the most famous shells in Mauritius like Turbo, Nautilus, Peigne de Vénus, Bénitiers and Cinq Doigts.

Tip no.2: Seashells are also sold by the friendly beach hawkers. You might end up paying much more with them rather than in selected shops.
