Mahebourg - Mauritius

Cap Malheureux


Mahebourg is a small peaceful colonial town. It is in this bay that during three days, from the 22 to August 25, 1810, the French squadrons commanded by Duperré, and English commanded by Willoughby, fought a duel to death. It was the only great naval victory of Napoleon.
