Not my favourite beach in Mauritius unfortunately. Pretty overcrowded and surprisingly annoying sellers (which is not usual on this island)

From the yellow sand beach you can swim in the aqua water and snorkel out to coral or take a glass bottom boat to view further out into Blue Bay Marine reserve. A lovely park with huge shady trees is above the sand.

A not so big public beach . It is somewhat nice and secluded. The sea floor has got lots of corals and thus footwear whilst swimming would be a good idea. Accross the road one can have snacks and other things.

A good clean beach, great for families, young group of locals sat under a tree playing guitar and singing which was nice... and not forgetting swimming in the warm blue Indian Ocean.
