The Ile de la Passe, the house of the Robillard family now transformed into Museum of Naval History of of Mahebourg and the Falaise Rouge constitute the witness of the famous battle.

 

The original building on top of Falaise Rouge is now a ‘table d’hote’. It is now managed by Ciel & Nature.

The sea around Falaise Rouge is embellished by clumps or clusters or lonely majestic mangrove trees. It has an impressive biodiversity at sea in the air or inland.
