We walked here from the Ravenella Attitude to see the sunset. Was great and got some amazing pics. A little pebbly/rocky but didnt go deeper in to the water to comment.

Selection of eateries in evenings and plentiful of Mauritian style Lunch snacks near the beach Frequent local bus services at very affordable price. Various hotels opens to outsiders for drinks and dining particularly for those staying at b & b

We were at Ravenala and the beach is not turquoise because of the river flowing into it, however, if you walk 5 to 10 minutes around the the next resort, you find this incredible beach. Very few people - Chrystal clear water - Amazing snorkeling!

The beach is nice with lots of water sports. There were a lot of water activities that one can participate in. These include diving, snorkelling, fishing, horse riding, banana boat ride, clear glass fish viewing and many more

Nice public beach with good sand be careful in water since there are spiky creatures. Good place to visit with kids.

As there were all inclusive resorts here dotted around the beach, we did not see any restaurants apart from the ones linked to the hotels.
