Flic en Flac – Sunset evening

Good evening lovelies! Have you ever heard about Flic en Flac beach ?
Located in the district of Black River on the west coast of Mauritius, it is among the best and most popular beaches of the island. Known for its scenic views over the Indian Ocean horizon and of Le Morne Brabant Peninsula, it attracts over 500,000 visitors yearly.

Sipping a hot Cappuccino at Mafiozzo Bar and watching the sunset every Friday evening has turned out to be my favorite hobby.

Why should you visit Flic en Flac + things to do

  • Turquoise coast

Lay out your beach towel and enjoy the quiet beach scene with a lagoon protected by coral reefs. There’s plenty of room for feet-up relaxation on the sands, and picnics beneath the shade of  Casuarina trees. It’s lovely & peaceful! 

  • Diving Paradise

Get a close-up of the tropical marine life with Ticabo Diving Centre; Professional and friendly staff who provide help for both beginners and divers. They emphasize on safety and quality equipments which leaves you with a secured and fearless feeling while taking on the dive, and it will be about 12 meters under water. The Cathedral is another hotspot. It’s an underwater cave with the light peeking through a crack in the ceiling giving it a stained-glass appearance. Both sites are great.

  • Highlights on Land

Tamarina Golf Estate (10 minutes’ drive away) offers a practice range over 43 hectares of rugged Savannah land framed and 18 holes which have been specially designed to give spectacular views of the towering mountain range. Or why not taking 8 km stroll , chit-chatting and having a great afternoon!
