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.

We spent a few hours wondering round the complex. Plenty of shops set out in lovely easily accessible buildings. There's also a craft market building as well. The only little niggle me and my daughter have is that as soon as you wonder in the shops (the craft market was worse) staff follow you closely and if you look at... More

We went to this place as part of a north tour we had booked. There are plenty of shops and markets to look around. make sure you keep you bags locked and money safe as there are some pick pockets going around. Our guide told to do this and to be on the look out for each other. I felt... More

This is a typical old harbour redevelopment project designed to give an upmarket feel to the location. It's a genteel sort of place with cafes, restaurants & over hyped & overrated shops . Owing to its pleasant location, harbour views & a vibe about the place, it has more strollers & cafe-restaurant visitors rather than shoppers.the much advertised tribal-ethnic kind... More

Not all places or centers have air on and it gets really hot. A good variet of up market shops, banks and very nice stop and go resturants and cafes, the Indian and Chinese cuisine is really nice, parts are starting to age, but does not impact on the visit
