Flic En Flac

— 4 nights
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.
Venture out of the city with trips to Chamarel (Chamarel’s Seven Coloured Earth Geopark & Ebony Forest Reserve), Tou Korek Surf Shop (in La Gaulette) and International Slave Route Monument (in Le Morne). The adventure continues: kick back and relax at Flic en Flac Beach, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Saraswati Maa, contemplate the long history of The Martello Tower Museum, and take in the dramatic scenery at Chamarel Waterfall.

Island of Rainbows and Shooting Stars
A small but surprisingly multicultural island in the Indian Ocean, Mauritius sits just east of Madagascar and offers a white-sand coastline lapped by sapphire waters. The contrasts of colors, tastes, and cultures here makes a vacation in Mauritius richly rewarding, with plenty to do along the coast and deeper inland. A tour of Mauritius usually includes long stops at the island's beaches, which serve as launching points for deep-sea fishing trips, dolphin-watching excursions, and scuba diving adventures. Farther away from the water, you can discover a paradise for hikers and nature lovers. Mauritius is made for explorations on foot, with several volcanic summits and a large national park sheltering abundant species of indigenous plants and birds.
