We loved swimming there felt as if we were the only people in the world. If you travel to Mauritius try and go to Rodrigues Island which is such a natural and authentic place. By air it's... More

Clean and clear crystal seaside. The sand is super white and a very good place to relax and breathe some clean air

Fantastic walk to get to this secluded beach where you can refresh in Turquoise water. You won't find a lot of beaches like this on the planet.

I thought there were nicer beaches on Rodrigues. The sand was full of rough corals that hurt the feet. It was nice, though, to see the surf and the reef up close.

It was a lot of walking before the sea can be seen. Well, it takes at least 45 minutes of walking to reach the sea. The beach is awesome. It is worth the trekking.

This is an unbelievable spot of primordial beauty. Needs a little walking, through a young tree grove. to get there. You will reach from above and be rewarded by a breathtaking view. The reward is huge and worth every single step. The thick white beach is embraced by the arms of two rocky promontories and is a treasure trove of... More

We did the hike from Graviers to Saint François, there are several coves to admire and some where bathing is possible... So much preserved and natural... very few tourists... both relaxing and amazing.

Mauritius is an absolutely gorgeous island, but what most don’t know and probably should BEFORE going is the following: • Every beach in Mauritius is different. There are some that have waves, others that don’t, some are gentle, others are for kite-surfing. Vist them all! • Do NOT stay simply at your resorts beach/pool. There is soooo much to see... More

Worth the 40-minute walk from St Francois. Not the best beach in the world but it there's some 'life' in the water (a.k.a. a fairly ripping undertow) that makes it fun. A better bet is the teeny wee cove two beaches further along after Anse Bouteille - another half hour or so.
