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

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.
