Pereybere Beach is located in the village of Pereybere, in the northwest part of Mauritius. This is one of the many beaches of Mauritius situated in the Rivière du Rempart district.
Situated between Grand Baie and Cap Malheureux in the north, the lively Pereybere Beach is never far from anything. There is plenty of self catering accommodations in and around Pereybere, and this has made it a popular alternative to the more upmarket resorts around Grand Baie and Pointe aux Canonniers in the northwest.
For the beach enthusiast looking for peace and quiet, Pereybere beach will be a disappointing experience. Despite the fine sand and crystal clear waters, the beach itself is simply too small, considering the number of visitors that come here every year. At a mere 150 metres long, you can expect to literally rub shoulders with your fellow travellers, even if you visit the beach in low season.
If you don’t mind the crowds, or perhaps even enjoy it, Pereybere has a lot to offer. There’s a good variety of restaurants in the area, and beach hawkers from the local tour operators make sure that you can book that dolphin cruise or big game fishing trip without even having to leave your sunbed.
Right behind the beach, on the other side of the coastal road, you will find a few practical services, such as ATM/cash points, internet cafés and the odd souvenir boutique.
There is a well stocked supermarket, Store 2000, on the way to Grand Baie, and if this is not enough, the Super U Hypermarket in Grand Baie, one of the largest supermarkets in Mauritius – is only a couple of kilometres away.
The proximity to Grand Baie makes Pereybere a good location if you’re looking to sample the nightlife in Mauritius, but still don’t want to live in the middle of it all. If you don’t want to walk the 2 kilometres to Grand Baie, taxis are plentiful around Pereybere beach, just make sure you negotiate the price before getting in!
