Fine white sand, gentle descent to the water, palm trees and good infrastructure. Crowded over the weekend. In some places it is good to have special water shoes due to corals. A lot of boats and people trying to sell us something. Nevertheless, for me...More

Suck in the raw beauty this place has to offer. Highly recommended and a great place for South African's due to the relative ease of travel to Mauritius! TIP! Pack sun block and DON'T Forget AFTERSUN to help heal the sunburn.

Our family spend a lovely afternoon here.... white sand, clean blue water... the only negative was some sharp rocks and coral that cut our feet but otherwise a beautiful spot.
