Trou aux Biches
Trou aux Biches
Trou aux Biches is probably best known for its all inclusive 5 star hotels but if you can find some good private accommodations you will get to experience al the delights of this quaint town for a fraction of the price.
Offering beautiful stretches of sandy beach and being only 10 minutes away from the tourist orientated Grand Baie, Trou aux Biches is an ideal resort for those that want the best of both worlds.
This is also a great resort for scuba divers offering several excellent dive sites on location.
A beautiful sandy beach, myriad of restaurants, great shopping and the best resort for night life Grand Baie still somehow remains rustic enough to offer the relaxing holiday Mauritius holidaymakers seek.
Located in the North of the island it is situated close enough to many of Mauritius’ foremost attractions such as Pampelmousses, Casela Wild Life Park and Port Louis. With the island being so small anywhere is within an hour or so’s drive.
Indeed, for the visitor looking for some nightlife this is probably the must-go destination.
Mahebourg / Blue Bay
Is the primary (but nethertheless small) city of the Grand Port region situated on the South East Coast of Mauritius with a population of around 17,000. It is centred around a very popular food market and it’s other most notable feature is the well serviced bus station – from which you can reach virtually any major destination on the Island.
The city is probably best described asslightly dilapidated with shoddy buildings interspersed with the odd modern build.
Nether-the-less Mahebourg’s charm somehow invokes a sort of wonderment. Whether you be sampling the street food, moseying through the market,shopping for curiosities, peering seawards from the boulevard or simply watching the wonderful characters pass along something about Mahebourg will surely stay with you forever.
When snorkeling try sprinkling a little coconut in the water, then relax and watch the vast array of colourful fish surround you

With plenty of choice of restaurants, offering a wide choice of cuisine, Flic en flac has everything you need to unwind.
