"Le Souffleur" in an old print (approx. 1880)

The reef, which nearly surrounds Mauritius, has a major break in it on the south-east coast. Instead of beach and calm lagoon, the sea rushes up against lava rocks and cliffs, carving out a variety of stacks and other coastline sculptures, the best known of which is Le Souffleur, where one can see thundering breakers and jets up to 80 m high
