    Sea Urchin Warning - Wear sea shoes
    Flic en Flac beach is an excellent beach to kick back and gets lots of sun. Choose either the very beginning or the very end of the beach to gain more solitude. Some snorkelling, but coral is of very poor quality. Sea urchins are in the sand by the 1000s in this area, so do not walk into beach without wearing beach shoes with hard soles

    Nice beach, although not the best on the island
    It's the closest beach to where I normally stay, so I end up coming here often. It is very popular but there are places to find more secluded spots. The beach is clean, but there is rather a lot of dead coral and seaweed to navigate.

    Great long beach
    Very long quiet beach - lots of food vendors at where the car parks are at top of the beach. Quite a few rocks etc underfoot which is main drawback. Water is very clear in the lagoon area at the top.

    As we stayed at the Sands. This was our main beach, a long stretch of beach, it is over 6 miles. I would sometimes walk along the beach from the Sands up to the Hilton hotel and back again. At the other more public end you would find food shacks. It is also a great spot to enjoy sunsets.

    Nice beach at all.
    Very long, sandy beach, clear water, perfect for swimming, no waves, as the island is protected by coral reefs. Some food tracks providing relatively cheap take away meals. Restaurants at the other side of the road. Very nice and pleasant place.

    Clean and atmospheric beach
    Visited flic on flack beach shortly after arriving in Mauritius as it was near our accommodation. The beach is a lovely space with white sands, blue waters and shady spots under the trees higher up. The beach has a welcoming atmosphere with many families, celebrations and gatherings to be seen. There is also a good selection of street food vendors and restaurants nearby or just across the road

    One of the best beaches in Mauritius
    I deducted a star as I compare it against other beaches in the world like the ones in Maldives, Mediterranean, Caribbean and in Pacific islands. However it is one of the best beaches in Mauritius. Flic en Flac on a sunny day is just so stunningly beautiful. When I arrived at Hilton Mauritius I was so impressed by the long stretch of the beach with the beautiful light blue water colour. It also presents with stunning sunsets on sunny days. Snorkeling is ok. Snorkeling spots are far in the water marked by red buoy (at least the ones in front of Hilton). We snorkeled here, turtle bay, Mont Choisy and Ile aux Cerf. The snorkeling is not spectacular any where. In Flic en flac, I saw a moray eel, box fishes, butterfly fishes, flute fish, lion fishes, trigger fishes, small giant clams, brain coral a few smaller starborn corals and soft corals. Most corals there are brain corals. Be ware of urchins and lion fishes. There is also a warning for stone fish but that I did not find. For swimming and snorkeling, the water can be on the shallow side. Morning high tide is advisable because fishes are more active and it tends to be sunnier in the morning. High tide is important as otherwise it can be really shallow. The swimming zone (marked in yellow) was mostly free of urchins. However, it does not mean that no urchins can move in!! When I swim for snorkeling, I saw a few urchins even inside the swimming zone in front of the hotels. Besides, there are a lot of broken corals on the beach (this is the same to every beach we’ve been to in Mauritius including the famous Ile aux Cerf). So, it is safer to wear swimming shoes for playing in the sea. For hiking, the visible sandy patch was pretty soft and I walked on my bare feet with a bit of attention to avoid any broken corals or tree branches.

    The beach can be separated into two areas.
    The beach can be separated into two areas. The northern half a public beach with 25 metre deep woods between it and the coast road. Plenty of car parking and small snack stalls for food and soft drinks. A nice stretch of white sand and azure blue sea. No sunbeds just bring your own towels, rush mats or chairs as the locals do. As you walk the 2 km south you pass by all the All Inclusive 4 and 5* hotels. Here the beaches could be cleaned, get a bit wider sand in parts and are a lovely picturesque stretch. However you will pass continuous sunbeds, there is no break, just one after the other filling the beach which is not so picturesque.

The beach is great. But I am writing to warn you about unscrupulous sellers of excursions. I attached a photo of the boat. Ordered alternately 2 excursions from a woman (WA +230 5773 4365) the second tour began to be postponed, allegedly because of the weather. And as a result, we waited the whole vacation for a refund and never received it.

Lots of sea weed and dead corals on beach so can look unsightly. Snorkeling is great by the police station and food trucks.

Beach views were amazing, beach shoes are needed in the water as there is coral, sea urchins etc. Sand is soft on upper beach however surface is rougher in water in some areas. Sea was warm & some trade people but never really bothered us.
