Hawkers on Beaches


I have heard that hawkers are found roaming on the beaches on the island selling clothes, etc. Is this really true coz its a downer?

I have heard abt instances at Le Mauricia. Is this prevalent in other beaches as well?

Hi Yes there are hawkers on the beaches selling clothing , shells , jewelry - even at the Oberoi where we were in early october.

Not really a problem as they move on if not interested.

My wife actually bartered for a coral type bangle - from 1500r down to 200r - bit of fun !!

The hawkers we experienced during our trip were polite & not too persistent, after saying no they moved on and didn't come back. The main ones we encountered were selling day tours to various locations and jewellery.
