Written on : 18 June 2021
By : Leo-Paul Weiss

An unspoiled and generous flora, a paradisiacal climate throughout the year, and turquoise waters sheltering a unique tropical marine fauna. This is what makes you dream, and yet it is not paradise, but a small atoll in the middle of the Indian Ocean a few thousand kilometers from Africa: Mauritius. With a coastline of about 330 km all around the island, Mauritius is a postcard with its sumptuous white sand beaches that seem to stretch as far as the eye can see. 
 
Today, let's head for the North of Mauritius to discover the most beautiful beaches of this region!

Mont Choisy Beach: The ultimate family beach

Mont Choisy Beach: The ultimate family beach

Mont Choisy beach is the longest beach in Mauritius. It stretches from Pointe aux canonniers to Pointe aux Piments via Trou-aux-Biches. 
More protected from the wind than the other beaches, it is a unique and ideal place to swim and sunbathe under the Mauritian sun. Very popular with families, swimming is safe for children and the absence of hotel complexes contributes to the calm and serenity of this beach. Lining the beach trees will protect you from the sun during the hottest hours or give you a little shade during a family picnic. There are also many snack bars on the beach to eat. Favour Le Kiosque Magique. It is a snack bar where you can enjoy Mauritian specialties such as the upside-down bowl, octopus mines, or samosas at a very reasonable price.

Grand Bay Beach: The Popular Beach
