Escape to the East from Veranda Palmar Beach

Welcome on the eastern coast of Mauritius – the one that best illustrates the island’s contrasting beauty. The East actually has two faces: one with fishermen’s hamlets and their sheet metal huts, and the other with exceptional sites and endless white-sand beaches, which have preserved their peaceful atmosphere. The place is indeed ideal for a relaxing day!

The beautiful town of Flacq and its Indian temple
Every trip to the east coast starts in Centre de Flacq! This first stop is a must if you want to immerse into the local lifestyle and visit superb temples. You can also walk through the town’s market, where local farmers sell the most attractive products at low price.

Small and colourful hand-woven baskets are sold along the walkway. The fascinating temple of Poste de Flacq is only a few minutes away. Set on a tiny island, which is connected to the mainland by a small bridge, this all-in-white temple is totally worth a visit!

From Bras d’Eau National Park to the beach
Spreading over 497 hectares, Bras d’Eau National Park offers a wonderful excursion in nature, where you can discover local species, such as a variety of endemic plants as well as antthrushes, Mauritius kestrels, woodpeckers and Mauritius parakeets. In the distance, you can also see the colourful sails of regattas. Drive along the coastal road up to Poste Lafayette and stop at the public beach to watch kite-surfers in action.
The most beautiful beaches of the island are found on the eastern coast, including a 10-km long beach stretching from the northern tip of Trou d’Eau Douce to Pointe de Flacq. The white sand and crystal lagoon views are simply breath-taking!

A cultural stopover at the Café des Arts
A distinctive place where art, gastronomy and history meet, Victoria 1840 – Le Café des Arts is a destination in itself. As they roam around the history-laden walls, gaze at Maniglier’s paintings and taste the fine cuisine, visitors relish in a unique experience, which ignites the senses and delights the tastebuds. Jocelyn Gonzalez, the householder, shows them the place with typical enthusiasm. Guest can expect an unforgettable time!

The iconic Île aux Cerfs
What would the eastern coast be without the Île aux Cerfs? The most popular and best-known destination in Mauritius by far, Île aux Cerfs is a must for guests staying on the eastern coast. Many visitors fell in love with its picture-perfect scenery, its white powdered sand and turquoise lagoon. The island also features an ideal diving spot for those who want to swim among corals and tropical fishes.

Beaches, temples and a national park: the East coast of Mauritius has a beautiful soul! On the outskirts of Veranda Palmar Beach, guests can revel in exceptional landscapes that will make their stay even more sensational.
