Anse La Raie Beach
Anse La Raie Beach is located near the village of Calodyne, in the north part of Mauritius. This is one of the many beaches of Mauritius situated in the Rivière du Rempart district.
Several things can be said about Anse La Raie beach, but few visitors would probably consider this area as a beach as such.
Situated northwest of Calodyne, this area enjoys the same stunning views of the north Indian Ocean as the neighbouring beaches, but in stark contrast to nearby Pereybere Beach and others, here you will find little but peace and quiet.
It is true that Anse La Raie may not be your picture perfect, paradise dream beach, but hey! – The water is clean and clear, and the Calodyne bay offers great opportunities for both snorkelling and perhaps a bit of Mauritius kite surfing al dente!
The beach area itself offers the standard facilities of a public beach in Mauritius, such as a couple of beach huts, a forested picnic area and clean restroom facilities.
For more of a “beach proper”, head east of Anse La Raie. Simply park at Anse La Raie beach, cross the rocks (on foot!) to your northeast and walk along the coast. The beach looks a bit dirty at first but gets better some 100-150m to the east, where you will find shallow waters and a small sandy beach.
The avid beach trekker would continue through the beach forest east of Anse La Raie, and would soon end up at the resorts of Calodyne Sur Mer and others. Beware though if venturing through here, as you would have to trespass private property to reach the beaches of Calodyne – not something that we endorse or in any way recommend. Happy trekking!
