Mauritius with white beaches, turquoise waters, blue sky and red skin!
Le Morne – very nice beach off the main roads. A paradise for kitesurfer, windsurfer and snorkeling. In some parts close the beach the water gets already deep for little children and be also aware that there can be a reasonable current that can push you up north. On the north side of the hotel LUX you find a restaurant. Also further down, after LUX and ST. Regis where the street makes a left bend and where the kitesurfers are, you can buy different snacks and drinks. Tamarin – a nice big beach no lagoon. One of the preferred spaces for surfing. A nice place to learn surfing yourself.
Flic en Flac (long walks on the beach are possible, good infrastructure, restaurants, shops, bars)
Mon Choisy (north-west, very big beach, you can see some nice sunsets here and it’s, at least during the week, not so crowded)
Trou aux Biches – long beach with nice blue/green water and wonderful sunsets. Snacks and drinks can be bought near the beach. Length about 3.5 km separated by some black stones. In the southern part of the beach is only in front of the Pointe-aux-Biches hotel a good possibility to take a swim, the rest of the water is pretty stony.
Grand Baie (small and centrally but in the main bay located) Pereybere (one of the nicest beaches, no stones in the water but very short (crowded at the weekend, good infrastructure with bars and restaurants) Calodyne – a bit hidden but worth to be mentioned. Wide beach in a nice bay. Please prepare something to eat and drink.
Belle Mare (very long beach with sometimes very deep sand – nice extra difficulty when jogging there) Blue Bay – south of Mahebourg and behind the airport (but far enough away from the airport)
Ile aux Cerfs (quite commercial, you reach it through the road that leads to Touessrok hotel, turn right and follow the golf signs – the golf course is also on the island)
Here are not so much preferred public beaches for swimming, (mostly at the hotels you might have some beach). Bel Ombre for example can be quite muddy. But on the wide grassy beach site you can have some nice walks and enjoy the sun.
