Mauritius is famous for its beautiful beaches. Here is our list of the top 5 most beautiful beaches in Mauritius:
1. Le Morne beach
Located in the South-Western region of Mauritius, Le Morne beach is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful beaches in Mauritius. It offers an exceptional view of the imposing Morne Brabant, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. White sandy beaches, shaded areas and a gorgeous turquoise lagoon await vacationers on the 500-metre stretch of public beach of Le Morne. Sun bathers generally prefer the northern section of the beach, while water sports enthusiasts take to the south of the beach and the lagoon. Le Morne beach is particularly pleasant to enjoy exceptional sunsets.
2. Île aux cerfs
On the East coast of Mauritius, Ile aux Cerfs is a must-do excursion when in Mauritius. One must board a boat to access these heavenly white sandy beaches! With warm, crystal clear waters, the Ile aux Cerfs beaches are ideal for swimming and snorkelling. If you’re looking for a more serene experience, feel free to arrive early in the morning and take a long walk along the shore. You will be quickly rewarded with barely populated beaches, where you can spend time relaxing in complete tranquillity. Do not hesitate to contact the concierge to help you organise this excursion!
3. Flic en Flac beach
On the West coast, and a few kilometres from Marguery Exclusive Villas, is Flic en Flac beach. With its 1.5 km of fine sandy beaches, Flic en Flac will delight all vacationers seeking authenticity by leaving the usual tourist hot-spots. Sheltered from the wind, the beach of Flic en Flac is not very touristic and rather deserted during the week. It is, however, overwhelmed by Mauritians on weekends, who come to picnic with their families and enjoy the clear waters of the lagoon. A great opportunity to immerse oneself in Mauritian culture. Early risers can try spot dolphin activity at sea as they walk along the beach as the sun rises!
4. Mont Choisy beach at Trou aux biches
To the North-West of Mauritius, and a few kilometres from Grand Baie, lies the beach of Mont Choisy. With its 3 km of fine sand, it is one of the longest beaches on the island. The water is always calm thanks to the coral reef protecting it. It is therefore an ideally suited beach to spend some time family or friends, in the shade of one of the many coconut trees surrounding it. Along the side of the road, you will find plenty of food trucks for small or big appetites.
5. Blue Bay Beach at Pointe d’Esny
Located at the tip of the South-East coast, near Mahébourg, the Pointe d’ Esny beach is a real little paradise! Its ultra-fine sand is only sublimated by the enchanting blue-green lagoon, which stretches out over 10 km from the coast. On land, don’t miss the opportunity to admire Ile des Deux Cocos. On the sea side, snorkelling enthusiasts will be able to enjoy and appreciate the numerous marine species present in the marine park!
