With more and more people visiting the island every year, Flic en Flac is no longer a fishermen’s village, but one of the hottest places in the Indian Ocean.With a white silk-like sandy beach over a kilometer long, Flic en Flac offers its visitors numerous attractions and activities in the water as well as outside of it and is a true representation of the paradise island image one would imagine when thinking of Mauritius.

While on the beach you can easily get on board of glass bottom boats for a couple of rupees or higher scuba or diving gear and try it yourself. Other activities available are windsurfing, parasailing, water ski.. Most of the hotels located around the beach offer these activities as part of their services and are free to use.
