"SIGNAL MOUNTAIN"

Signal Mountain is in Port Louis. It is possible to drive up by taking Labourdonnais Street south from the junction with Georges Street. At the end of Labourdonnais Street the road rises up the flanks of the mountain and narrows in parts but the drive is worth the effort. From the small parking area there are different views of the capital, spreading inland in neat blocks to the foot of the Moka Mountains with flatlands of the north in the distance. To the west there are views of Grand River North West and the filao-fringed headland of Pointe aux Sables. A very steep path to the summit of Signal Mountain leads to the radio transmitter station.
