This beach of shallow water, lined in places by salt flats, is one of the least ‘maintained’ of Mauritius’s best beaches, but though the sand is a bit course by Mauritian standards and there atmosphere is a bit salty it’s still a lovely vista of coconut palms and clear water.

Some of the parties most interested in this beach are surfers, the waves roll in with infrequency but in impressive sizes and shapes. Where the waves start on the reef they’re too quick to catch but there’s a bend in the bay which lines up with a break in the coral reef which slows them down enough to jump on before they run a long straight, clean line to the sand. Surfers would call the waves left barrels.

Unfortunately there isn’t any equipment available for hire.
