Quatre Cocos Beach
Quatre Cocos Beach is located near the town of Trou d’eau Douce, in the east part of Mauritius. This is one of the many beaches of Mauritius situated in the Flacq district.
Quatre Cocos Beach is also known as Pointe Quatre Cocos.
Quatre Cocos is a vast network of dirt roads along the central east coast, stretching from Trou d’eau Douce in the south to Palmar in the north.
The area is a beach trekkers dream, with kilometres of pine tree forests, black rock landscapes, pristine beaches and the rugged landscape that make up a lot of the east coast of Mauritius.
Quatre Cocos is part of the 15 km beach land that covers a large part of the Flacq district coastline.
The avid beach trekker can spend several days covering the full stretch, from Trou d’eau Douce in the south and all the way up to One & Only St Géran and several of the most exquisite beach resorts in Mauritius.
The majority of the Quatre Cocos beaches are located fairly close to the coral reef, and as such they are home to rather lively waters. Further to the south, towards Trou d’eau Douce, the beaches are more quiet in that sense.
The stretch near Pointe Quatre Cocos, at the far end of Quatre Cocos in the south, offers plenty of shallow waters – good for both fishing and snorkelling. As you move further towards Trou d’eau Douce, the distance to the reef will increase. Within the Trou d’eau Douce bay area there is typically more than 1000 metres to the coral reef, and the waters here are shallow, calm and clear for the most part of the year.
The Quatre Cocos beach land is not developed, and as such you will find very little in terms of facilities and services, although the odd snack wagon will can be found in the south end.
The area is an excellent spot to experience one of the last major beaches of the east coast of Mauritius – one that is still largely undeveloped.
