Mauritius Beaches

mauritius travel and tourism guide
Mauritius is surrounded by beautiful beaches along its 100 miles of coastline. The white sandy beaches are shaded by coconut palms and casuarina trees or as they are commonly called filaos trees have made its reputation as one of the best sea resort in the world. Most of the best beaches are found in the North, West and East. The South has fewer good beaches as it is unprotected by fringing coral reefs. Elsewhere however, the fringing reefs form a protective barrier that makes the lagoons sheltered, and calm. These lagoons are safe and remain calm all year round. Some of the best beaches in the North are; Grand Bay, Pereybère, Mon Choisy, Trou aux Biches. Flic en Flac, Tamarin and Le Morne are the favourites in the West. Belle Mare, one of the longest beaches in Mauritius is found in the East. And Blue Bay is the most favoured spot in the South East.

Most of the hotels in Mauritius are found close to these beaches. There are also a number of fully equipped bungalows, studios that are available for rent in these areas. Prices vary depending on the location and the services offered. These self-catering lodgings also sometimes offer full room service upon request.

Going to the beach is the favourite pastime of Mauritians. So don't be surprised to see crowded public beaches especially during week-ends.
