Protruding out towards the ocean and nestled among the mangrove tress, a holiday to La Gaulette strikes a balance traditional fishing village and a tourist-friendly surfing spot.
We've included these beaches for you: La Cambuse Beach and La Preneuse Beach. Venture out of the city with trips to Marche de Goodlands (in Goodlands), Mahebourg (Pointe d'Esny & Mahebourg Waterfront) and Speed Boats Tours (in Blue Bay). The adventure continues: play a few rounds at Tamarina Golf Club, get a new perspective on nature at Musee du Coquillage, get a new perspective on things with Boat Tours & Water Sports, and get great views at Piton Canot.
