Welcome to Flic en Flac

Flic en Flac

Once a small fishing village, Flic en Flac has grown to become one of the hottest tourist spots in Mauritius. Located on the west coast of the island and linked by road to Port Louis, the town's long and beautiful white sand beach is protected by a lagoon that makes it perfect for watersports like snorkelling and scuba diving, and there are great dive sites including caves and wrecks nearby. Flic en Flac caters for mid-range budgets and has a good selection of self-catering accommodation.
