Amazing experience....

Most of the beaches in Mauritius are stunning to enjoy and spend time. This is another great place where you would love beach activities.

We visited Flat island and Gabriel Island with catamaran. The gabriel beach is really beautiful, but we were really dissapointed and sad after seeing that the coral reef is totally dead there. You can see some nice fish from time to time, but the corals are all dead, what a pity. They say it is ideal for snorcheling but I... More

You can get here only through catamaran. With white sands and pristine waters, it was a relaxing trip. Take care of the water though because of its strong current.

The only way to get there is by catamaran from a cruise company or by a private boat. If you go with a cruise company, you will have the chance to visit a few of the nearby islands on the same day so it is definitely worth the deal in my opinion. The beach is great, the sand is snow... More

We went by private boat to the very spot where this photo was taken. It was a choppy boat ride past the Coin de Mire but once we got there, it was so lovely that we anchored right on the beach, and sat in the gently lapping waves for a few hours, sipping refreshing drinks and enjoying the setting.

We booked a tour on a catamaran with sunkiss I think they are called. The bbq was nice but this is about the beach! Fantastic! Fine golden sand and the sea is 3 shades of blue and very calm with a gentle current. The snorkeling is also good but like most places a lot of the coral is dead due... More
