 Information

The East Coast is the region that has witnessed the fastest tourist development in the last 10 years. Apart from the private bungalows that were built there since the 1920’s or so, the East coast was left wild for many years.

The first two modern hotels were built there in the 70’s; they remained on their own for approx 10 years until the promoters, local and international understood the great potential of the longest and nicest beach of “Belle Mare.” Contrarily to other coasts of Mauritius, the important villages of the East are relatively far from the shore. When residing on the East coast it is essential to rent a car to discover the island.
