Albion: A Quaint Village with Cliffs, Hidden Caves & a Lighthouse

Albion, inspired by Britain's cliffs of Dover, is known for its iconic lighthouse.

Nestled in the west part of Mauritius, Albion is known as the quietest little village of the island and it is home to the famous lighthouse of Pointe aux Caves, as well known to be a fishing hotspot and a remote beach destination.

It features wild cliffs where waves crash dramatically, offering stunning views. Hidden caves below the cliffs, home to birds and bats, add to its unique appeal.
