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.
What a better way to end the day than sipping a hot Cappuccino at Mafiozzo Bar & watching the sky takes on shades of orange, feeling a warm breeze embracing your body… isn’t it mesmerizing?
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. There are designated swimming areas which you should remain in due to very strong currents; make sure to check the signs before going for a swim.
- 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.
- Highlights on land
