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.
Explore Flic En Flac's surroundings by going to La Vanille Nature Park (in Riviere des Anguilles), Chamarel (Ebony Forest Reserve & Seven Colored Earths) and The Crown Lodge (in Port Louis). There's still lots to do: kick back and relax at Flic en Flac Beach, admire the sheer force of Chamarel Waterfall, look for gifts at Tou Korek Surf Shop, and explore the striking landscape of Black River Gorges National Park.
