Of course there are many beautiful beaches in Mauritius, so it’s hard to go wrong. Here are some of the favorites.
Beaches in the West
Beach in Flic en Flac
The beach in Flic en Flac is beautiful for many reasons. It stretches over several kilometers, has great views of the laguna until Le Morne mountain and it’s easy accessible, as it’s right across the main coastal road in Flic en Flac. You have many good food trucks and can even rent parasols and beach chairs at one place. But maybe the best part is the beautiful sunset you’ll be able to see every day.
Beach in Le Morne
The Le Morne mountain is a special place itself, being one of the landmarks of Mauritius. The beach has soft sand and the water is crystal clear. There are many resort beaches here and it’s easy to understand why. But the public beach is equally beautiful. There are several local food trucks and also a nice cafe called Emba Filao.
Île aux Bénitiers
Even though the small island on the south-western coast is filled with tourists everyday, it is worth a visit. The water is simply stunning, shimmering in a deep turquoise. It’s also the best place to see to the Crystal Rock, a famous photo place. It’s amazing to swim around the rock and see all the fish in the clear water.
Beaches in the East
Along the east coast of Mauritius you find a number of beautiful beaches, especially in the south-east.
There is Pointe d’Esny beach and stunning Blue Bay beach very close to each other. Further up north you’ll find the remote beach of Belle Mare.
Ile aux Cerfs
The small island has some bigger beaches with perfect white sand. But what is maybe even more beautiful are the small groves and bays that you find al along the shoreline. There is a private place for everyone and the trees give the perfect shade. Especially once the day tourist are gone, the island feels very calm and serene.
You can get to Ile aux Cerfs either with your car and then with a small ferry or you book a day tour, for example with LMC Tours.
Beaches in the South
There are several beautiful beaches on Mauritius wilder, southern coast. But not just the beaches are nice, also the small towns here feel very bright and laid-back.
There is Jardin Telfair between Souillac and Surinam. Further west you’ll find St. Felix beach and Bel Ombre public beach.
Beaches in the North
The north of Mauritius around Grand Baie is popular with resort tourists. You find nice beaches at Trou aux Biches, Mont Choisy and close to the famous church Notre-Dame Auxiliatrice at Cap Malheureux. There is Bain Boeuf public beach and Anse La Raie.
