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.
Appreciate the collections at Flic en Flac Beach and Curious Corner of Chamarel. Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Trou aux Cerfs and Le Morne Brabant. Explore Flic En Flac's surroundings by going to La Cambuse Beach (in Le Bouchon), Takamaka Boutique Winery (in Vacoas) and Mahebourg Naval Museum (in Mahebourg). There's much more to do: get engrossed in the history at Jewish Detainees Museum and Saint Martin Jewish Cemetery, see majestic marine mammals with a dolphin and whale watching tour, visit a coastal fixture at Phare d'Albion, and pause for some photo ops at International Slave Route Monument.
