Notes on the Geography of Mauritius: Mauritius 1: Port Louis: Photo 8
The opening of the bulk sugar terminal in 1980 freed up the waterfront for tourism development, and in 1996 the Caudan Waterfront opened on Barkly Wharf, previously used to store coal. Not very glamorous, so for a name the managers reached farther back to Jean Dominique Michel de Caudan who in 1726 had begun producing salt by evaporation. The process is still used not so far away, near Flic en Flac.
