The top 10 beaches in Mauritius?

Why the question mark? Well, it’s always going to be a contentious subject when someone sets out to find the best beaches on an island with such an abundance of great choices. All we do know for sure is you’ve got a great chance of finding your own very small slice of paradise here given the variety to indulge in. And, in age when everyone wants to unplug more than ever, that’s no small thing.

We’ve had a go at beach lists ourselves previously: one here for beauty; another for swimming; and we’ve even drilled down to specific areas such as the South Coast’s beaches.

While some people are looking for laid back bliss and isolation, others want some fun with watersports or a beachside shack they can call their own to get that cocktail and view they’ve been dreaming about.

Whatever your inclination, this recent guide to the top 10 beaches by Stefano Ferro on his blog, MEL365 Travel Guides, is a good place to start exploring. His top 10 is listed below but he admits himself that “there are so many “best beaches in Mauritius” that is almost impossible to select one or the other.”

Ferro’s own choices are swayed but certain aspects such as the “best roti you can find in the island” on Flic en Flac beach. Meanwhile, on Le Morne Beach he found the accumulation of palm trees, calm water and white sands meant the beach had “the full lot”.

The only way to know for sure, of course, is to visit and try as many for yourself as possible. Sound like a nice idea, right?
