We went onto the public beach at Le Morne beautiful white sand and good facilities (toilets) the small beach further up was brilliant for kitesurfing very very windy fun to watch the people flying and surfing, although not a good place if you want to just relax. The local hawkers can be troublesome but act a bit thick and say... More

Although there a a number of high end resorts along the beach, a few public beaches ensure effective access along the stretch. Public beaches have toilets and shade. When you... More

A fantastic beach with the best view of Le Morne mountain. The water is crystal clear. The only thing that didn't make it perfect was the vast amount of coral mixed with the sand, but that's nature for you!

Beautiful beach with good snack bar. There is a strong side current which you need to be careful of if you are not a good swimmer. No problem if you stay close to the shore

This is a very beautiful beach in the south west coast of Mauritius. The public beaches are nice to spend time with family and good for swimming.
