Whether you intend to have stroll on a quiet beach or to enjoy a good book in the shade of a casuarina with your feet on the warm floury sand, you will enjoy the long stretch of beach from Anse Ally to St Francois.
If you have chosen to stay in a self-catering apartment and want to shop please note that supermarkets (mini-markets) located in main areas. However, the typical convenience shops are surprising. The shelves are not longer than one metre but hold so many things stacked on each other, from tomato sauce to fresh bananas. You might also want to stop at Port-Mathurin market or at Mont Lubin (in the centre - mid-way between Port Sud-Est/St Francois and Port-Mathurin) for fresh veggies, meat, fish and fruits. You can grab a pound of fresh peanuts or a bunch of freshly-harvested kale.
Further up in Citronelle, pop at Valerie’s for an espresso and bake of the day. Flavours depend on seasonal fruits. In July, the Mauritian pink napolitain is dressed in yellow with a delicious passion fruit icing.
Down on the way to Pointe Coton, a cooperative organisation named Etoile de L’Est, gathering skilled weavers have place mats, coasters, hats and handbags made from natural local fibres, for sale at affordable prices. It’s a great way to say no to plastic and support this initiative and on top of that, these are great gifts to bring home.
AllinMauritius has gathered a few pictures at different times of the day to capture the very essence of that place for you.
