Flic En Flac ©
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.
Get out of town with these interesting Flic En Flac side-trips: Chamarel (Rhumerie de Chamarel, Curious Corner of Chamarel, & more) and La Vanille Nature Park (in Riviere des Anguilles). There's lots more to do: enjoy the sand and surf at Flic en Flac Beach, explore the striking landscape of Black River Gorges National Park, pick up a one of a kind souvenir at Le Dernier Comptoir, and admire the sheer force of Chamarel Waterfall.

For reviews, photos, traveler tips, and more tourist information, go to the Flic En Flac trip builder .

Riyadh, Saudi Arabia to Flic En Flac is an approximately 11.5-hour flight. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 1 hour traveling from Riyadh to Flic En Flac. Expect somewhat warmer weather when traveling from Riyadh in January: highs in Flic En Flac hover around 35°C, while lows dip to 28°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 18th (Sat) to allow enough time to drive to Grand Baie.
