Flic-en-Flac beach is generally considered to be the most peaceful coastline on the island of Mauritius and offers some of the best snorkeling and diving sites around. It is situated on the west coast of the Island of Mauritius in the village of Flic-en-Flac and within five minutes walk from the public beach. Temperatures in Flic-en-Flac vary between 25 and 35 degrees Celsius all year round. Surrounding the island of Mauritius are emerald-blue sea waters and beautiful sandy beaches. All within easy access of the major cities, and free for all to enjoy. That is 20 Minutes drive from Port Louis, the capital city of Mauritius and 1 hour drive from the airport.
