The East of Mauritius

mauritius travel and tourism guide
Mauritius ile aux cerfsThe main attraction in this region of Mauritius is Ile aux Cerfs. A small island, 10 minutes by boat from the small fishing village of Trou d'eau Douce and is managed by the Touessrok Hotel. It has a bar and restaurant and shops selling beachwear, jewellery and craft products. Water sports like skiing and parasailing can be practiced there. But the main attraction of the island is its virgin white beaches and emerald waters where people can do what everyone does there all year round: enjoy the sun. Recently a water park was also opened at Belle Mare situated some 10 minutes away from Trou D'eau Douce.
Centre de Flacq is the biggest village on the Eastern coast. It has everything that can be expected from a small modern town; a police station, district court, fire brigade, hospital, shopping arcades, supermarkets, and schools. It is also the place where just about everything can be found, from jewellery to handicraft at the cheapest prices. It is also only 15 minutes from Belle Mare public beach and some of the best hotels of the island. The Saint Géran, Coco Beach, Belle Mare Plage Hotel, Ambre Hotel, The Residence, Price Maurice and the Touessrok are found only a few minutes away from the village centre.
Moreover, at a quarter of an hour from Centre de Flacq towards the centre of the island, one can visit Fuel Sugar Estate upon request. This is the biggest sugar factory of the island and it also produces energy from bagasse, a by-product of sugarcane. Anyone interested in knowing more on how sugar cane is made can contact the tour operators of that region, which regularly organise guided tours.
