Only 5 mins away from Mahebourg, it is a nice and calm area. In the morning, you could see the light of the sun, red, orange and then super bright. Wonderful place to spend some quality time your family members. However, avoid people living nearby in the area called "Cite EDC". I prefer not to write about the people living... More

The waters and wind were fantastic for the regatta which were held at Pointe d'Esny. We finished 17 races. The main item to contend with are the tides. Ensure that you know when the high and low tides are.

A beautiful Beach, great for snorkeling, not at all crowded, with beautiful views Some big hotels have their frontage leading down to the beach, but the law seems to be that anything where the sea goes up to the waterline is public. So no picnics, which is signed by the hotels that look out onto the beach

The beach is secluded but has nice white sand. Parking needs to be done at a stretch and do watch out for jetty's and boats.

Went with family and liked it. You need to park some way away from the beach but the swim and views are worth it. You also catch the departing planes and some smaller arrivals.

Amazing secluded snorkelling between Pointe d'Esny and Ile aux Aigrettes, just watch out for boats and kite boarders. Hardly any one else comes here and there is amazing reef if you just head a 100m out. Flippers are a must in the strong current. Area is nicely local and not too touristy. Fairly quiet. Ile aux Aigrettes is interesting but... More

We walked here from Preskil Beach Resort, left out of the entrance. After a few hundred yards, pass the jetty where boats leave for trips to Les Aigrettes island and take the path between properties marked with big white signs - can't miss it. I would suggest going at low tide, because it can be difficult at high tide due... More

Crystal clear waters - check Fine white sand - check And that's it... for the rest you won't see any facilities, restaurants, sun umvbtrellas or any idylic palm trees unless you are staying at one of the many bungalows/ villas there. Access can only be done through a very narrow path indicated near the road. So its a very nice... More

One of my favorite place to spend a quiet time on a Sunday afternoon. This place simply makes one think how mother nature has blessed Mauritius with beautiful scenery.
