Lovely beach for walking on. Coral reef just off shore to keep those annoying bitey things away from you. But beware of Sea Urchins and a shell with a barb that will go straight through your flip flop! You should wear special wooden sandals that...More

Beach is beautiful & clean. Not congested. Remember to take sneakers- lots of rocks in some areas in the water

This beach is nice but not really meant for swimming since it is quite rocky. But the environment is nice for a stroll or Jogging. Different local food vendors are there that sell typical Mauritian food.

It's a nice sunny beach, although has a tendency to become very crowded and finding some shade is tricky.

The area is quite nice with trees that give shade and a narrow strip of sand. What was bothering us was the garbage that was left behind by previous visitors... too bad.

Small and rather isolated beach. Powerful waves allow you to remain near the shore. Great for snorkelling and seeing the local tropical fish in their natural habitat.

The beach offers a variety of water sports activities like water skiing, snorkelling, sailing, etc, a lot of which are offered complimentary by the resorts.
