Believe no one come Mauritius to mainly SHOP, so apart from viewing the design of the buildings, seeing how the local youngsters spent their day,looking at the traffics, probably the wharf is the only plus point. Luckily car park was free as we didn't stay long. Blue Penny Museum and the Stamp Museum closed very early too so we were... More

100% tourist attraction place. Most of the shops and boutiques are unnecessarily costlier. May be due to most of the western tourists. The Casino is a must visit place, and yes gambling is LEGAL in Mauritius! Apart from the boutiques and shops, one can find ample eateries and restaurants. Few of them give a nice view of the sea and... More

There's some okay things here but so overpriced, expect to pay up 3 times as much as you would elsewhere.

It is the best part you can visit in Port Louis. On the left hand side there is a restaurant/bar on the water with amazing views of the waterfront.

Modern water front shopping mall and some restaurants and cafes. A few expensive designer stores and an indoor craft market. Wanted to buy some gifts to take home and left empty handed. Street vendor selling fruit and amazed to find a large pomegranate for around £6! Pleasant walk from the car park and nice views.

Great views at Cauden. Don't go for the shopping, it will dissapoint. We sat at a nice outdoor restaurant and enjoyed the views.

The whole cauden waterfront complex is not that big, some nice shops though. However the surroundings is worth visiting. Nice food / drink around. When you're in Port Louis make sure to stop by, however it's not worth a trip just for this.

Well. Not what I expected. Yes it has that "waterfront " feel yet lacking in so many ways. Won't be back there in a hurry. I guess Port Louis is the capital and it should be having a waterfront.

Lots of high end boutiques if that what you are looking for. The waterfront is beautiful, very quiet and peaceful. Did not purchase anything from there. This place can definitely be missed.
