Mauritius, located to the east of Madagascar in the Indian Ocean is renowned for its white sandy beaches and also the coconut trees that appear to come straight from a dream. Below you will find 5 of the most interesting beaches that you should not miss when visiting this tropical island. Mauritius Holidays can soothe even the most world weary soul and offer something for everyone.
Flic en Flac
Located on the western part of the island, this is probably the most popular beach of Mauritius. Actually this is among the longest beach of the island and should provide ample space for you to relax properly. However you should avoid going there during the week-end as this place can be quite congested. Indeed this is the favorite place for Mauritians living in the center of the island that will be looking to unwind after a hectic week at work.
This is another popular beach that is located in the Northern part of the island. Just as with the Flic en Flac beach you should avoid going there during the week-end if you do not want to get overcrowded. There are also a lot of food outlets out there if you want to have a lunch or some take-away food while at the sea.
Located between Grand Bay and Port Louis, this is probably the most recommended place when it comes to swimming spot. The water is crystal clear and the beach is just perfect. Just as with the other beaches it is recommended that you visit the place during the week if you want to swim in all quietness.
This is a really beautiful place if you want a calm and clean place to relax. Located in the South-Eastern part of the island, the beach is pretty much close to the airport. However you will not be disturbed by the noise of airplanes. This is a great place for those that are staying in the southern part of the island or if you are touring the central part of the island.
Trou aux Biches
This is another great place that is located in the North of the island. White sand and crystal-clear water made this a great place for relaxation and also swimming. There are also a lot of restaurants and food outlets that are located round about this area and will be really helpful if you are looking for a place to eat.
There are some more beaches that are available on the island but the ones listed above are probably the best ones for people that are looking for a calm and clean place to relax.
