An unusual commodity in the lesser-touristed western part of Mauritius, the developed seaside village Flic En Flac boasts a vast white sandy beach that generates a large amount of tourism.
Curious Corner of Chamarel and Jewish Detainees Museum and Saint Martin Jewish Cemetery will appeal to museum buffs. You'll visit kid-friendly attractions like Flic en Flac Beach and Scuba & Snorkeling. Venture out of the city with trips to La Vallee des Couleurs (in Chamouny), Chamarel (Ebony Forest Reserve, Chamarel’s Seven Coloured Earth Geopark, &more) and Les 7 Cascades (in Riviere Noire). The adventure continues: contemplate the geological forces at Trou aux Cerfs, explore the activities along Underwater Waterfall, steep yourself in history at The Martello Tower Museum, and stroll through Black River Gorges National Park.
