Most stunning aerial drone photos in Mauritius

1. The Kovil Montagne Sri Siva Subramanya temple (center)

The Kovil Montagne Sri Siva Subramanya temple, located on the flanks of the Corps de Garde Mountain in Quatre Bornes, is now an art piece and a major pilgrimage site in Mauritius, playing host to numerous festivals and monthly celebrations throughout the year.  And it’s also a beautiful place for a mystic aerial shot like no other.  

2. The Underwater Waterfall (South) 

Just off the coast of Le Morne peninsula, you can spot the fascinating “underwater waterfall”. This optical illusion created by Mother Nature is caused by currents pulling sand out into the deep sea, making it look like there is a waterfall under the water. This illusion can only be observed from the sky.

With the mountains in the background, the sea, the beach, the river and the trees, and also the rainbow in the sky, this shot from the sky has it all and looks unreal.

Mauritius has 137 named mountains. Hiking one and taking a drone picture of yourself at the top is definitely a MUST.

This shot captures 4 of the 7 pyramids.
