I have to go from Mauritius MRU airport to Mahebourg, and I'd like to try walking.

Only 3 kilometers apart (even though Google Maps' crazy walking route makes it 88 kilometers)

Is it possible to:

  • Exit the airport by foot
  • Turn left and walk towards the seaside
  • Walk between the coast and the southern part of the airport to Blue Bay Link Road
  • Walk beside Blue Bay Link Road to Mahebourg

... while avoiding death by GPS?
I would prefer to go around the airport via the South, because of big roads via the North.
I don't mind small agricultural trails, as long as they can be used lawfully.

Below is one of the trickiest parts:

Clearly there is access (and seemingly no barriers) so presumably just a matter of right of way. Commendable responsibility but given "Even on the motorway you’ll find people wandering across the road and a generally relaxed attitude." it does seem likely that no one else would care! Might you consider a taxi to get you just past the M2 (ie onto the A10)? –  pnuts Jul 16 at 14:43
