All I can say is WOW! this beach is so perfect and stunning I can't believe a place like this actually exists. The beach isn't easy to access, but we had read reviews about there being public access through a side alley. This beach is so worth seeking out. The signs on the beach put you off, stating that it's... More

Staying at Paradise Beach Luxury Apartments was an absolute pleasure. We were 6 adults. The information booklet that is available is very helpful. The managing agents run a superb ship. We stayed in B2 on the ground floor and found the finishes to be fantastic.The apartment was well appointed with an amazing lady who looked after us. We could walk... More

Find your way through the vilas and you will discover an almost private paradise. It is quiet without large resorts around. Enjoy it!!!

We visited Pointe d'esny on a trip to the south east of the island just after a visit to Mahebourg. It is just a few minutes from Blue Bay. It is a nice blue lagoon with a mountainous backdrop. There is very little to do, it is a rugged area with major hotels such as the Preskil and Paradise Beach... More

As Pointe dÉsny is backed by private houses and small hotels, the beach is quieter than others on the island. We always stay along this beach. Blue Bay Holiday rentals can organise rental of private villas right on the beach.

We have always stayed at accommodations on this beach. The beach is very long and great for walks, never crowded. Towards the Blue Bay end there are lovely spots for snorkeling among the coral.

With reference to the previous review there is a path down to this beach but it is not signposted so needs to be pointed out. The result is that the beach is quiet and is very beautiful but not the place to go if you are looking for stuff going on. The one thing to note is that the beach... More

Put simply, there really is nothing to Pointe d'Esny. After reading the reviews we headed there, on our way to Blue Bay. First problem, there's no parking between Pointe Jerome until you get to Blue Bay. Walking along the road is no fun at all, the road is narrow, busy, and of course has no pavement. High walls block any... More

A slower paced and not as overdeveloped with tourist resorts compared to the north of the island. Good and quick access to the airport.
