The West region of Mauritius is one of the driest in the territory, along with the South West. At the sight of its landscape, you could easily imagine yourself in the middle of the African bush. But the West of Mauritius also pleases for its calm waters and sheltered from the prevailing winds. Suitable for all kinds of activities, the beaches of the west coast of Mauritius welcome water sports lovers every year, such as pedal boating, snorkelling, water skiing, scuba diving or kayaking. The west coast of the island is also full of idyllic spots for surfing. Without forgetting the activities dedicated to the more rustic: shopping, natural parks, karting … Among the best places to visit in the West of Mauritius, we find:
L’Ile aux Bénitiers
Located off the south-west coast, Île aux Bénitiers is a preferred choice by visitors for its turquoise lagoon breathing perfect calm. Aboard a fishing canoe, a schooner or a catamaran, you can reach the island from Rivière Noire, Morne or Flic en Flac. This entirely flat island is exactly 2 km long and 5 m wide. Take a boat trip there, stop by the crystal rock, and snorkel in the perfectly clear waters.
Le Morne is home to the most beautiful hotels and golf courses in Mauritius. Particularly popular with holidaymakers stands out for its kilometres of white sandy beaches, favourable for practising various kinds of watersports. Kitesurfers, surfers and windsurfers will find their happiness in the southern part of Le Morne, where the weather conditions are ideal, as it’s almost always windy thanks to the high mountains of the Black River Gorges.
Piton de la Petite Rivière Noire et Chamarel
Piton de la Petite Rivière Noire is the highest peak of Mauritius. It is part of the mountain range that encloses the Black River Gorges national park. The village of Chamarel, meanwhile, is located in the highlands. It is particularly known for its seven coloured earth, its rum store and its family restaurants which offer a warm welcome to visitors. These two places are also exceptional viewpoints for observing the blue of the ocean. In winter, you can even see the gray silhouettes of the high mountains of Reunion Island.
