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.
You'll get in some beach time at Flic en Flac Beach and Gris Gris Beach. Give yourself a bit of retail therapy at Rhumerie de Chamarel and Trianon Shopping Park. Change things up with these side-trips from Flic En Flac: Chamarel (Seven Colored Earths & Ebony Forest Reserve). And it doesn't end there: step off the mainland to explore Ile aux Cerfs, explore the striking landscape of Black River Gorges National Park, buy something for everyone on your list at Phoenix Mall, and browse for treasures at Le Dernier Comptoir.

To see where to stay, ratings, traveler tips, and tourist information, use the Flic En Flac route planning website .
