Belle Mare – is perfectly suited for sports activities like jogging and walking. It is also a great place for endless long walks along the coast. Belle Mare is famous for the combination of colours. The turquoise deep blue gentle lagoon ends up in a white clean beach which is the border to the lush green grassland covered by many trees and plants.

Flic-en-Flac – is the longest beach on the west coast of Mauritius. It consists ashore corals, sea urchin and shells which make the beach special and unique. It has a turquoise blue lagoon which offers best swimming possibilities.

Tamarin – is one of the rare places which hasn’t got an offshore riff so the sea is tougher. In the shallow water of Tamarin Bay, it is not dangerous to swim, surf or enjoy the waves. The ground of the sea consists only sand and some stones which make this a unique Mauritius beach.

Le Morne – is a symbol of the slaves’ fight for freedom. The white coral sand beach is very beautiful with very clear water which provides a beautiful visibility. Perfect wind conditions prevail all year round providing best time for windsurfing and kite surfers.

St Felix – is wonderful, the exceptionally white sand, which flows into the turquoise green of the Indian Ocean gives a wonderful contrast to the verdant trees over there. It is very lonely and offers an excellent opportunity to chill out and relax. The ground of the lagoon is covered with corals in which one or the other fish from the family of the highly toxic stone fishes can be found.
