Real Mauritius for locals

Real Mauritius for locals. If you have time visit Mahebourg, spend some time in the city and dine in inexpensive restaurants for locals.

Lovely small beach with scenic views next door to Blue Bay. Not too busy even at weekends. Worth a visit.

this place is a very beach area within 5mins drive from Mahebourg centre; it offers a nice scenery and pleasant place; however the Blue Bay beach is much better for a nice swim.

Come from big bazar of Marebour to visit the pointe d'esny . The public beach is crowdy, popular but so authentic. It is an attraction itself. If you want more privacy, go to small ( wonderfull) beach on the way , between private houses. It is a mark each 200 m to enter . Great view on aigrettes island, luxuous... More

Pointe d'Esny as very pleasant, clean, quiet, white sand beaches with turquoise water: very nice. We rented a house on the beach, otherwise the access might be at some point a little bit difficult due to villas all along the beach.

One of the most beautiful beaches, white sand, very quiet, not many visitors - nearby Blue Bay. if you want peace and quite, this would be it, if you are not wanting a lot of tourists and people around you. It is definitely worth a visit.

Can spend whole day on beach? Then consider this option. Try choosing a week day morning. Afternoons can get bit crowdy
