Mauritius is filled with great beaches and so it is difficult to pick a particular breach!! But when you look at the map of Mauritius and concentration of resorts in the country, the part of Mauritius north of Port Louis certainly pos up. Majority of the tourists flock to that area for the beautiful beaches. From our place of stay Flic En Flac, the North Mauritius was about an hour’s journey subject to traffic conditions at Port Louis. We visited these beaches on one of the days. Here is the list of few beaches.

Trou Aux Biches
Little difficult to pronounce, it translates to a pond where deer used to drink water!! It is a Long Beach lined with resorts. Public can enter from both ends of the beach. One of the best beaches for playing in water and indulging in water sports activity.

North of Trou Aux Biches, this was the beach we liked a lot. With the backdrop of casuarina trees, Mont Choisy beach looks lot scenic that other beaches. It gave an opportunity for my daughter to play “hide and seek” games!!

Grand Baie beach
Grand Baie is an area filled with resorts having their private beaches. The public beach is rather small but a good place if one likes to have street food!! Not a good place for swimming due to the presence of fishing boats.

Further north of Grand Baie is Pereybere beach. It looked like it was more popular with locals. Lot of parking place and eateries. The water is deeper but not rough. A nice place to spend some time.
We went on for beach hopping but if one likes to stay in beach resorts, these beaches provide lot of options. But if you are looking for peaceful location, then South Mauritius beaches (yet to write about them) are better. If you are interested in submarine ride, then their office is between Trou Aux Biches and Mont Choisy beach.
