East Coast Highlights

The East Coast of Mauritius begins in the North with Roches Noires and ends in the South of a small fishing village called Trou d’Eau Douce. The East Coast is the perfect destination for guests seeking the authentic local charm, wonderful white sand beaches, serenity and the unspoiled coastline.

This is the perfect destination on the island for families or older couples looking for a toned down beach holiday without the excitement of crowds and city life. There is a large number of hotels and luxury accommodation in this region, but the night life is not intrusive. Some of the best hotels on the island have been built on the eastern coastline.

Many of the luxury resorts and spas in the East are only an hour away from the airport meaning beach luxury is but a short drive away. This coastline has some of the richest scenery on the island, including the longest lagoon and some epic mountain views.

Tours and Packages

Sun Safaris Says

The East Coast of Mauritius is south of a small fishing village called Trou d’Eau Douce. This region remained untouched for many years until the last decade when it was established as a fine holiday destination.

The East Coast is the perfect destination for guests seeking a relaxed ambience and local charm. Visitors can look forward to souvenir shopping, local fruit shopping and spending the day on the beautiful white sand beaches.

Water activities are popular within the East Coast and include scuba diving and snorkelling.

The lagoons of the East are unique, but they are not the sole attraction of this region. In the south-eastern part, especially around the Vieux Grand Port, the mountains come down steeply into the sea.

Sea water temperature during summer is at about 25-27 degrees Celsius making it a perfect beach island destination.

Sun Safaris will book guests on Air Mauritius or South African Airways flights from Johannesburg’s OR Tambo International. There are flights from Cape Town to Mauritius, but they are irregular and most will not suit guests’ itineraries.

Upon arrival at Sir Seewoosagur Ramgoolam International, guests will connect with a road transfer to their booked hotel on the island. The country is only 2040 sq km in size and all destinations can be reached by road.
