Beautiful scenic area

Lovely white sandy beach, very clean, pristine turquoise waters. Catamaran trips leave from this jetty area.... No crowds, so peaceful location....

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.

Visiting the lighthouse island on the reef and swimming in the middle of the bay. Up a mangrove inlet to see the waterfall,monkeys and bats. A delicious lunch on the beach with drinks. Take swimming gear and... More

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

The place has a very nice - bit secluded - luxury beach which is open to the public, you can reach it via a narrow path from the road between Blue Bay and Mahebourg. There are no trees for a bit of shade. You can watch the rich going on and off their yachts and their villas.

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
