We found the perfect beach for snorkelling in Mauritius! 🌴

3년 전

Snorkelling in the warm Indian Ocean was probably the most pleasing part of this tropical hot day so far.

We visited Trou aux Biches, Cap Malhereux, Mont Choisy and Grand Bay. They are all seaside villages right next to each other along the North coast of Mauritius island.

We weren't so sure which beach to do our snorkelling, so we thought, we might as well check them all out, and here's what we discovered!

I am just going to cut to the chase and start with our favourite one: The beach of Trou aux Biches was just beautiful. The town retains its village style, and it is so much less commercialized than Grand Bay.

We rented a big boat all to ourselves and went snorkeling, just the two of us. The water was perfect temperature and exactly what we needed. You don't have to worry about shark attacks either.

Definitely, allow yourself some ocean-sport-fun when out here. Snorkelling, scuba diving, kitesurfing or just swimming... You won’t regret it!

Mont Choisy Beach was very private and quiet. The only part of Mont Choisy I really liked though was the fruit vendor, who made fresh papaya and mango juice exceptionally well. YUM!

CAP MALHEREUX.png

Cap Malheureux is famous for its red church that you will see on a lot of postcards from Mauritius. It comes from the French and means "Cape of Bad Luck".

Mauritius used to be a Dutch colony, then a French colony and finally in 1810 it became a British colony, because of how the British took the French by surprise by attacking them from the North of the island (where the French were weakest in position). Since 1968 Mauritius is independent - ok, that's enough history for today :)

Regarding Cap Malheureux's beach. It's very small, but the sand is like having baby soft kittens all over your body!

The tourism hub is definitely around Grand Bay, which has the greatest concentration of hotels, beaches and entertainment. Beware to not go to a restaurant along the coast, they will overcharge you!

But on the other side, accommodation seems to be really affordable here. We found a good flat for £200 a month and it was located 1-minute walking distance from the prime beach! Compared to London pricing, this is an absolute dream. When can we move in?

Follow for more paradise vibes. I'm going to upload a video next 😍

Hi buddy ... your post is very interesting, hopefully I can visit. in the country I, Indonesia, also available Snorkeling location with a very beautiful view on seabed.

Wow, that looks like paradise. I always wanted to try snorkeling... 200 a month for a flat is really cheap... On the canaries you pay that for a week...

Wait, what? You mean the Canary Islands? Not bad, not bad at all :)

I really like how you edited your post and photos with the seashells around the photos!! How did you edit it so well? Its really unique :)

Thanks! I used photoshop, a bit of a back and forth, but it's not that hard.

Great pictures! Although, that golf cart looks a little shady.

Haha! That 'golf cart' is actually one of the popular rental cars tourists get there.
