Taxi

We have a cruise visit, 1 day, in port Louis in April, and want to visit Flic en Flac to experience the beach. We don't want the round trip to be more than 3 hrs. Can anyone recommend a taxi company and should we ask it to wait whilst we are on the beach? Any tips appreciated.

The beach at Trou Aux Biches is stunning & its closer than flic & Flac. Is there a reason why you have chosen flic & flac beach?

Taxis wherever they are based do like to wait for you to do the return trip, they usually include a couple of hours waiting time in the fare.

A lot of people taking excursions from their cruise ship have used taxismauritius. I've used them for airport transfers and other regular posters here and they are reliable and competitive.

I also think you'd be better going north west to Trou aux Biches or Month Choisy - closer than Flic en Flac.

It's probably a good idea to email one of the taxi firms (see link above) to get a current price. With the continued increase in the price of petrol, prices will be going up all the time.

Yes. I haven't been to Mauritius for 11 months so the price will have changed by now due to all the fuel hikes. I'd hate to give you incorrect information. Hopefully someone who has been recently will see your post and reply.
