MUR: Mauritian rupee
Flic en Flac is a lively resort on the west coast of Mauritius, which overlooks a stunning, sheltered beach that stretches for more than 5 miles. It’s the second biggest resort on the island after Grand Baie, although it still has all the tranquil island charm for which Mauritius is famous. There are plenty of shops, restaurants and cafés, plus an adventure park with a zoo to keep kids happy. Flic en Flac is also a great base for a host of day trips, whether you want to visit the vibrant island capital of Port Louis, the stunning wilderness of the Black River Gorges National Park, or the moving monument to the slave trade in the Le Morne Brabant Mountain, now a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Flic en Flac also has a range of all inclusive hotels for those who just want to relax.

Your guide to Flic En Flac holidays
The spectacular, 5-mile long beach, azure waters and fabulous opportunities for snorkelling and other water sports are the main attractions of this former fishing village. Flic en Flac has grown into a sizeable resort, with plenty of places to eat, drink and shop plus an adventure park for the kids, but it still exudes plenty of laid-back island appeal. It’s got lots to keep holiday-makers happy, but if you want to make some day trips, there’s are lots of great sights within easy reach. The lively capital of Port Louis is about 45 minutes away by car, or you could head 30 minutes south to the gorgeous forests and hills of the Black River Gorges National Park and the Le Morne Brabant Mountain, now a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
The beach in Flic en Flac is truly stunning: an endless expanse of white sand shaded with casurina trees and overlooking an impossibly blue sea. The coral reefs protect the shore, creating a lagoon that is ideal for swimming and snorkelling. Bring swimming shoes and watch out for the sea urchins! Mauritius is a superb diving destination, and several local diving centres offer excursions to the best diving sites in the area. Other nearby beaches include Tamarin beach, another gorgeous curve of golden sand; unlike other beaches on the island, it isn’t protected by the coral reefs which ring much of Mauritius, and consequently sees bigger waves than elsewhere. This has made Tamarin, as well as the beach nearby at Le Morne, very popular with surfers.
