Pont Naturel in southern Mauritius is a rock bridge, created over time by waves crashing against the side of the cliff.
The 2m-long bridge crosses the cove below, which seawater flows into, and leads into caverns underneath what is left of the rest of the cliff. Visitors can hear the whistling of the water below through tiny holes in the ground as they explore the area.
The ‘Natural Bridge’ is supported by cliffs on either side and is stable and large enough to cross, but is rugged and uneven.
As the road leading to the bridge sometimes becomes waterlogged, the last kilometre or so may have to be completed on foot, weaving through the sugarcane fields to reach the forest that meets the edge of the rock formation.
