Around Bon Azur and White Oaks: Trou aux Biches
The west coast, in the northern part of the island, is best known for its miles of white sandy beaches and crystal clear water. However, this area offers a lot more than just a place of relaxation; in this region you can also discover Mauritius' culture and history.
A two-minute drive from Grand Baie will take you to Pointe aux Cannoniers. Despite its size it offers visitors a wide range of attractions. On one side of the road, you will find many eye catching boutiques and also a variety of different restaurants. For those who miss the European cuisine, 'La Cigale' is the perfect spot. Enjoy the food; if you need to work off those few extra calories, you pop into a near-by fitness centre for a quick workout. Before leaving Pointe aux Cannoniers, tourists should visit the hotel 'Le Cannonier'. Walking around the grounds of the hotel you will find an interesting old lighthouse which was in use from 1855 until 1932.
As you continue your tour of the area you will pass by Mont Choisy public beach with its shady casuarina trees and small vehicles selling snacks. Within a few minutes of the beach is the Mont Choisy village. This village shares a common beach with Trou aux Biches and both villages are interconnected. Here you may find the diving school 'Blue Water Diving Centre' and access to the beach. Don’t forget to visit the pier where you can rent a boat for big game fishing or just enjoy a relaxing water tour.
The real Trou aux Biches starts after the beautiful decorated street – lined with colourful flowers on each side. From there you should discover the public beach where you have the chance to get a small snack and sit under the shady trees. Here, the long palm-tree-lined beach stretches out and invites visitors to take pleasant stroll. If you are looking for more excitement, then you should try parasailing, waterskiing or other water sports. In Trou aux Biches there is also a unique marine safari with an undersea boat. If you want a more personalized, intimate experience, you can explore the undersea world with a 'Scuba Doo' a type of underwater scooter.
In the village centre you will find fruit and vegetable stalls selling a variety of seasonal produce. There is also a small supermarket 'Chez PoPo' to provide you with basic needs. The central area also has ATM's and currency exchanges.
'Bon Azur' is located at the end of the Trou aux Biches. The resort offers you a peaceful and quiet holiday in a noble atmosphere. The area, with its beautiful beach and volcanic rocks invites you to sit back and relax in comfort.
Located just behind Trou aux Biches is Pointe aux Piments; because of its proximity you will hardly notice that you are entering another village. This area should be a must see for any tourists. You cannot afford to miss the village’s aquarium and the opportunity to explore the underwater world without getting wet. In this quiet village – similar to Trou aux Biches – is 'White Oaks,' another holiday apartment complex which also offers the perfect relaxing getaway.
On your way out of Trou aux Biches, heading towards Triolet, you will find the 'Maheswarnath' Hindu temple, the second most impressive Hindu temple after 'Grand Bassin' in the south. After taking time to visit the temple, you should take the time to go the extra few miles to Triolet. This town looks like a colourful big bazaar. The main road stretches through the entire town and you will see many kinds of shops which sell everything from household items to a variety of cloths. Triolet has a largely Hindu population so you will notice many small colourful Hindu temples lining the road. Fruit and vegetable stalls, small huts with traditional food and a large 'Winners' supermarket can also to be found.
Around Cape Point: Cap Malheureux
Cap Malheureux – literally means the Sad Cape; there are two popular theories as to how the area got its name.The first is reference to the English who landing at this spot and the oppression of the colony that followed. The occupation finally ended with the island’s independence in 1968. The alternative meaning relates to the local romantic and tragic love story of Paul and Virginie. As the legend goes, Virginie drowned just off the coast of Cap Malheureux as she attempted to get back to her one and only love. Local say that if you listen carefully you might hear her cry out to Paul on the wind.
This small village in the north of the island is quiet and peaceful – despite its name – and nearly untouched by tourists visiting Mauritius. This makes it the perfect 'out-of-the-way' get-away. It boasts wonderful sandy white beaches with views across the azure blue sea to the island of 'Coine de Mire' which juts unmistakably out of the ocean. Not to be missed is the little Catholic Church with its red roof, which is featured on many postcards.
The beach has many different facets from the really narrow rocky paths to the idyllic open spaces. Located only five-minutes from Cape Point, it is the perfect area for a truly relaxing holiday. The beach beckons visitors to go for long walks or to take a break under a flamboyant tree to soak in the breath-taking scenery. For those who enjoy water activities there is an exciting solar undersea walk, or you can spend the afternoon snorkelling and exploring the underwater beauty of the abundant marine life. If you enjoy diving, the 'Sindbad' school is just a two-minute walk away.
About a 10-minute drive by car, you will find 'Péreybère' with its beautiful beach and bay. The area is framed by its lava flows, palm trees and the turquoise water stretching out forever. Directly on the beach you can book a catamaran tour to Îlôt Gabriel or organize a day-trip to visit, by speed boat, Île aux Bénitiers. For those who prefer to go out to the local reef, snorkelling is also offered.
A variety of different restaurants from Chinese to Creole and Indian cuisine makes this area an ideal spot to work up an appetite especially as they are all within easy walking distance. On specific nights you can watch or join in the fun of a Sega dance at the 'Red Cat;” this is an activity that is highly recommended.

You will also find a wide range of shops, banks and ATMs and a large supermarket 'Super U' for all your basic necessities.
