Top Beaches of Mauritius

Belle Mare Beach

Lying on Mauritius’ east coast, Belle Mare Beach is popular with locals and visitors alike. Thanks to the presence of a deep lagoon running along the shoreline and the coral reef which encircles the island, the waters of Belle Mare are calm and safe from strong currents. Like something from a picture postcard, the Casuarina fringed perimeter protects the fine ground coral beach from the bustle of the surrounding town and although very busy on the weekends, at times during the week it is possible to have the beach almost to yourself. If lazing on almost six kilometres of fine, white sand sounds like too slow a pace for you, then the water park just minutes away offers every type of water sport known to man. Belle Mare is also home to not just one, but two 18 hole golf courses; ideal for those who want to add a little sporting flavour to their Mauritius holidays. Spilling right down to the water’s edge, it is definitely one of the most picturesque places in the world to putt a golf ball.

Grand Baie Beach

One of Mauritius’ most popular and lively resorts, not all that long ago Grand Baie was a sleepy fisherman’s village. Recent development though, has transformed this gorgeous beach town into a resort with excellent facilities and a wide variety of activities from water sports to nature walks. The beach itself is breathtaking; wide, sandy shores are shaded by a frame of gently leaning Casuarina trees. The beach slopes gently down to a shallow shelf so the warm waters are ideal for young children to paddle in safety. Many fishermen still work the crystal waters around Gran Baie and the shoreline is dotted with gaily coloured, bobbing boats. To catch a glimpse of how fresh the seafood is on your Mauritius holidays, stroll down to the fish market at the very end of the beach and watch the restaurateurs haggling for tonight’s dinner!

Tamarin Bay Beach

Where the mountains meet the sea, Tamarin Bay Beach may not have the glamour of some of Mauritius’ other favourite beaches, but its location on the fringes of the volcanic landscape adds to its unusual and rugged beauty. Situated at the base of the magnificent Montagne du Rempart on the west coast, its geography makes it one of the best surf beaches in Mauritius and the surrounding landscape has some wonderful hiking paths to explore. For more low key and relaxed Mauritius holidays, a visit to Tamarin Bay Beach will offer you a truly authentic taste of this island paradise.
