Of all Mauritius west coast beaches, Flic En Flac is the top beach destination favoured by many due to its long stretch of soft and a calm blue lagoon.

Lovers simply enjoy the sun or take a dip in the ocean, especially on weekdays when the beach is less crowded.

4. Gris Gris Beach

On the southern most tip of the country lies an unusual beach that fascinates tourists everytime. This beach does not have a coral barrier therefore causing the waves to crash at the cliff bases splashing it over the water.

Enjoy the view sitting on the benches laid along the beach as water activities are prohibited.

Named after emerald blue waters of the beach, Blue Bay provides the most wonderful snorkeling opportunities.

The almost transparent water lets you swim with colourful fishes among corals and offers great visibility. On weekdays the beach is mostly deserted, hence perfect for relaxation.

This impressive waterfall is formed at the mouth of the Grand River South East where the river currents meet the ocean tides. The water here is greenish due to the prolific and vibrant green forests that surround the area.

The Rochester Falls is the widest one in Mauritius. Ideal for a calm and relaxing day, the seclusion here is almost welcoming.
