The East Coast Travel Guide

The East Coast

Mostly known for its beautiful lagoons, virgin beaches, and green scenery, Mauritius's eastern coast harbors interesting sites such as the Eureka House and the Ylang Ylang Distillery. Driving along the coast is highly recommended to discover lush, green valleys covered with acres of sugarcane fields, rocky mountains, and impressive cliffs. Explore the lovely village of Trou d’Eau Douce, where time seems to have stopped. The villagers here are quite friendly. The East Coast also has one of the island's largest villages, Centre de Flacq. It's a bustling town with thousands of people coming and going, and although it lacks the idyllic beauty of much of the island, it's a fascinating glimpse into the lives of resident Mauritians.
