On the west coast of Mauritius, nestled between the iconic Tamarin Bay and La Tourelle mountain, the Smart & Happy Village of Cap Tamarin beckons. Developed under the Smart City Scheme and sprawled over 44 hectares, the seaside village is deeply rooted in eco-responsibility—the very first of its kind in the Indian Ocean.
Living in Cap Tamarin means choosing a serene and harmonious life. Grounded in the principles of diversity and sustainable development, the smart village was conceived in a way that honours—and extends—Tamarin’s cosmopolitan wealth. Following a rhythm and lifestyle that set it apart, Cap Tamarin keeps you close to the essentials… and closer yet to adventure!
Cap Tamarin is already a reality. Using a mixed approach, the smart city is centred around the shopping centre La Place Cap Tamarin where events are frequently held, luxury residences Les Terrasses du Barachois, Riverland Sports & Fitness Club and Paul et Virginie, a primary school accredited by the AEFE (the association of French schools abroad). During the course of 2020, additional developments will further enhance this offer: a three-hectare park fringing a river, C-Care private clinic, and a 5,000m2 Super U hypermarket. Following this, Cap Tamarin will reveal two retirement homes, an international kindergarten and primary school, a secondary school and high school offering both international and French curriculums, a suite of offices, a cultural centre and a brand new Riverland fitness club. A comprehensive offer, to say the least!
Eco-responsibility is at the heart of Cap Tamarin’s commitment. Once completed, the village will have the capacity to generate 2.5 MW of renewable energy using photovoltaic solar panels. Its green philosophy is also reflected in its approach to preserving natural resources, achieved by treating and reusing wastewater. The village espouses a reasoned architecture, featuring buildings designed to minimise their environmental impact: designation of an optimal location to ensure they benefit from prevailing winds and reduce the use of air conditioning, use of green energy and insulating paint, set-up of an efficient system for sorting and recycling waste…
Driven by its commitment to soft mobility, Cap Tamarin has devised the construction of three kilometres of pedestrian and bicycle lanes that will meander across the village. What better way to bask in the joys of everyday life!

The West Coast, where Tamarin is located, is one of the most coveted regions of the island.
