The beaches Mauritius
By Amy Adejokun Amy Adejokun Section editor

Discover The beaches

There are many stunning beaches all around the island. In the south, near Souillac, they lose their place up to vertiginous volcanic cliffs against which the ocean waves come crashing. The north is the region where most tourists go. As the base for most water-based activities, this region has some of the most beautiful beaches of the island, which are all monopolized by luxurious hotels. Wild nature lovers will prefer the eastern sandy stretches. Less busy, further apart, these beaches lack none of the beauty of the northern ones. The region of Morne Brabant, in the south west, is an excellent place to escape mass tourism. The surrounding landscape brings the African bush to mind and the lagoon is ideal for the practice of water sports. On the east coast, you will also find a lagoon surrounded by mountains. In this region, as you go north, the water becomes cloudy. The currents are strong and the landscapes become more rugged. It is the most authentic and untouched region on the island. Some cannons there are a reminder of the battles between the French and the English.
