About Flic En Flac

Yes, the name may be unusual, but Flic en Flac itself is delightful!

It's home to the best beach in Mauritius. Miles and miles of glorious white coral sand stretch as far as the eye can see.

Add in a calm blue lagoon, protected by a large coral reef, and you’ll understand why this little bit of paradise has attracted visitors for years.

About Flic en Flac

Found in the Black River District on Mauritius’s “Turquoise Coast”, and not too far from Sir Seewoosagur Ramgoolam International Airport, Flic en Flac is a popular beach destination for both tourists and locals.

It was once a small fishing village surrounded by sugar cane plantations and got its funny sounding name from an Old Dutch phrase, "Fried Landt Flaak", meaning free, flat land.

Now it is a tourist haven, so is the perfect destination for people looking for a little bit of winter sun.

Fringed with Casuarina Trees, the lagoon at Flic en Flac is ideal not only for swimming and water sports, but also perfect for donning a mask and snorkel to see the colourful tropical fish that call the coral reef home. Why not try it while you're there?
