[edit]Overview
Among touristic places like Grand Gaube and Cap Malheureux, it also comprises villages like Riviere du Rempart (the major village), Belle vue Maurel and Antoinette (where the first indentured labourers from India settled). Rivière du Rempart are linked by roads and is located northeast of Port Louis and north of and also Goodlands. Goodlands is a very popular shopping town. It is small but bustling with traders. It is also fast becoming a popular shopping venue for tourists as the prices of goods there are much lower than those in Port Louis. Goodlands has a market which trades a few times a week. Nearby there is the coastal village of Grand Gaube. Initially a fishing village,but now it boasts the presence of a small golf course, 3 hotels and a very friendly welcome awaits people visiting the village. Grand Gaube makes a very interesting drive when you use the scenic coastal route to Grand Bay (seaside resort) and Cap Malheureux. There are also beautiful villages in the coastal area like Poudre D'Or Village and Poudre D'Or Hamlet. There is a sugar factory at Goodlands.
