La côte est Mauritius
By Amy Adejokun Amy Adejokun Section editor

Discover La côte est

The east coast has many sides. Protected by the reliefs of the south, it is completely flat in the north. On the Mahébourg side, Lion Mountain rises 480m, while Bambous Mountain rises 626m. The sea is another story. The coral reef is a lot closer to the north than the south. Here you will find a number of islets, including Aigrettes Island and Marianne Island. The best known one, though, is île aux Cerfs (Deer Island). You can easily reach it by boat but keep in mind that it is very crowded. That being said, it is easy to find tour operators on the beach who organise these types of trips, but so do most of the hotels. The majority of these hotels are located between Trou d'Eau Douce and Poste de Flacq, where you will find the most beautiful beaches. Thanks to the trade winds, the heat is more tolerable in this part of the island. On the other hand, the winds during the southern winter are much cooler here than elsewhere. The country's largest lagoon is found on the east coast of Mauritius. It stretches out over 13 mi from the south of Pointe d'Esny up to Trou d'Eau Douce.
