Trou d’Eau Douce Beach
Trou d’Eau Douce Beach is located in 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.
Situated a couple of kilometres away from the coral reef, this small beach in Trou d’Eau Douce bay is a shallow patch of sand with quiet waters – and little else.
Less than half a kilometre long, the beach itself is nothing to write home about, and it is mostly functioning as a pickup and dropoff point for visitors to the nearby islands of Ile aux Cerfs.
Beach hawkers selling tickets to Ile aux Cerfs can be found year round in Trou d’Eau Douce, both on the beach and around the town entrances, but the quality of the boats and the ticket price vary.
There are a couple of good eateries in Trou d’Eau Douce, and the town sports a supermarket and even the odd bar, but as for beach scenery, there is considerably more potential in the neighbouring Quatre Cocos district, just north of Trou d’Eau Douce.
There are a few renowned hotels in the area, most notably the exclusive resort of Le Touessrok, situated across the bay, just south of Trou d’Eau Douce, as well as the popular Le Tropical to the north.
Trou d’Eau Douce itself is a great base for exploring the many beaches of Ile aux Cerfs, and it is also a good starting point for trekking the Quatre Cocos district to the north.
There are a couple of budget hotels in Trou d’Eau Douce, but despite its size, the town feels rather sleepy for the most part of the year.
