28 Jun Welcome to The East
Known by its pretty romantic label La Côte Sauvage (The Wild Coast), the eastern coast is away from the ‘all’, nightclubs and souvenir huts of Flic en Flac in the west and Grand Bay in the north. Resorts are beautifully designed to enhance the eastern face of Mauritius; blissfully unscathed by mass tourism. Interestingly, some of the best beaches are on this quiet coastline.
The closest the east comes to a resort town is Trou d’Eau Douce, reflects a feeling of a quiet fishing community with grand hotels next door. Its strength is the wild spot Île aux Cerfs.
