Flic En Flac

An unusual commodity in the lesser-touristed western part of Mauritius, the developed seaside village Flic En Flac boasts a vast white sandy beach that generates a large amount of tourism.
Your itinerary includes some good beach time at Le Morne Beach and Gris Gris Beach. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Le Morne Brabant and Swim with Dolphins. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Flic En Flac: Heritage Nature Reserve (in Bel Ombre) and Ebony Forest Reserve (in Chamarel). Next up on the itinerary: explore the wealth of natural beauty at Black River Gorges National Park, steep yourself in history at The Martello Tower Museum, see some colorful creatures with a scuba or snorkeling tour, and take in the exciting artwork at Nature Photo Gallery Moka Mauritius.

Ask Inspirock to suggest an itinerary and make planning a trip to Flic En Flac fast, fun, and easy.

Traveling by car from Grand Baie to Flic En Flac takes 1.5 hours. In August, plan for daily highs up to 29°C, and evening lows to 22°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 17th (Sat) to allow enough time to travel back home.
