Flic En Flac — 3 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.
Trou aux Cerfs and The Martello Tower Museum will appeal to history buffs. Step out of the city life by going to Flic en Flac Beach and Le Morne Brabant. Get out of town with these interesting Flic En Flac side-trips: Dolphin Warrior (in La Gaulette) and Chamarel (Chamarel’s Seven Coloured Earth Geopark, Ebony Forest Reserve, &more). The adventure continues: get a dose of the wild on a nature and wildlife tour.

To find reviews, photos, where to stay, and other tourist information, go to the Flic En Flac trip itinerary site.

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.
