    Flic-en-Flacq is a small village. So, it is easy to walk around. You can also go to the beach to walk there (or swim in the ocean/have a tan).

    The hotel I stayed in offers a glass bottom boat tour (which is for free). You will go with several others in a boat and watch the coral in the ocean. You will also have a great view on the coast line.

    When you are in Mauritius, you should do a walk on the beach. But be aware that the sand is not only sand. There is coral on it as well. So, use water boots to do the walk.

    Every evening at the hotel we had a different theme meal. Like Italian, Continental, Mauritius, Creol, etc. It is buffet style, so you pick your own dishes. All the meals where great.

Flic-en-Flacq Shopping

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Spar supermarket in the centre of Flic-En-Flac is situated below ground in the Pasendena Complex. Once inside you will find a variety of goods on sale . The highlight for me was the good supply of freshly baked often still hot bread found at the rear of the shop. The variety of foods seems to cater for all nations with very many common names such as Kellogs, Heinz as well as local brands. It does have an extensive chilled/freezer cabinet area for items such as frozen chicken , fish as well as the local Phoenix beer. Also in the shop area there is a small boutique and an internet cafe. The prices are very fair but obviously a little more expensive than say a real local fish or vegeteble market, but the range is ideal for families who have rented a villa and want to self cater. The only downside is that the entrance is not very inviting and often you may find one or two local inhabitants around there begging for money. But in many areas of Mauritius like other countries in the world the begging for money is something that seems to haunt the tourist areas.

    What to buy: The variety of loacal Mauritius bread is excellent from the Spar shop

    What to pay: RS 10 - 20 for bread ( french style baguette or like a big SUB in USA terms)

Flic-en-Flacq Warnings and Dangers

  • APaulo's Profile Photo

    by APaulo Written Aug 1, 2005

    The climate on the west coast is relatively dry and hot. In summer, the heat often gets so uncomfortable that having to walk 100 meters under the sun is a decision to take. The west coast is therefore best outside the peak summer months of December to March. A T-Shirt (or less) is all you need in summer (November to March.) A sweatshirt or something warmer is necessary for winter evenings (June to August).
