Bain Boeuf Beach
Bain Boeuf Beach is located in the village of Bain Boeuf, in the north part of Mauritius. This is one of the many beaches of Mauritius situated in the Rivière du Rempart district.
Bain Boeuf Beach is also known as Bain Beouf Beach (wrong spelling).
Bain Boeuf beach is to most visitors a beach that you pass on your way to another beach – be it Pereybere, Grand Baie or Cap Malheureux. There is of course a reason for this, and although it is designated a public beach, very few people would consider Bain Boeuf a beach as such.
The seafloor is rocky, the sand is coarse at its best, and for the elderly or disabled, Bain Boeuf is very difficult to access. On a positive note though, the beach is a great spot for a moment of solitude – you will be virtually on your own, even in high season.
The area above the beach is home to several wooden benches overlooking the bay, and is a popular lunch spot for locals, taxi drivers and other visitors passing by Bain Boeuf. One can perhaps complain about the sand and seafloor, but the view of the lagoon is still stunning, and the colour of the water is as turquoise as ever.
The beach is somewhat sandier to the east, near the many small fishing boats, and from here it is possible to walk or swim out to the Bain Boeuf lagoon, where the seafloor is mostly sandy and the water is shallow, which give way to several great snorkelling spots – but beware of the combination of strong currents and rocky coastline.
During high season you might find the odd snack stand around the parking area, but for most of the year, Bain Boeuf beach is typically deserted, except for the odd visitor from one of the hotels nearby.
For the avid beach trekker, it is possible to cross the rocky parts at west Bain Boeuf and continue west. You will end up in a residential area where you will find a few hundred metres of powder sand, crystal clear waters and a beautiful lagoon with a few private boats. By all means visit this area, but do respect the fact that this is not a public beach as such.
