About Region - West, Mauritius

<Previous Page
West Region Image Gallery
The west side of the island is one of the best spots with long sandy beaches. Unlike the North, it has remained less developed but offers the same facilities. Many hotels (like La Pirogue, Sugar Beach, Le Morne, Hilton, Sofitel) are found along the coastline and there are also beach resorts like Flic en Flac that have long sandy beaches fringed with casuarina trees.
Game fishing - Further down on the west coastline, there is Rivière Noire Centre de Pêche, which offers all the facilities for Big Game fishing. Over the last few years, big game fishing championship has been regularly staged there with contenders coming from all over the world.
Salt Pans - Owing to the exceptional high level of sunshine the district receives, Tamarin is naturally the heart of salt production in Mauritius. Tamarin beach is another place, along the western shoreline, which offers a new thrill. Because of its waves it is the ideal spot to practice surfing and body board especially in winter.
Casela - Situated in the Rivière Noire district is the Casela Bird Park sanctuary. The bird park stretches over 25 hectares and contains more than 140 bird species from all five continents of Mauritius. Other attractions include fish ponds, tigers, tortoises, monkeys, deer and orchids. And if you are lucky, you can get a glimpse of the rare pink pigeon of Mauritius.

Martello Towers - The Martello Towers represent the scene of the ancient rivalry between old colonial powers and the ingenuity of mankind. They are a milestone in the island's history; they symbolise the end of slavery and the beginning of Indian immigration.
Chamarel - A winding road leads from Case Noyale village to the coloured earths of Chamarel: an undulating landscape of different and contrasting shades of colours. The different shades of blue, green, red and yellow are apparently the result of the erosion of the volcanic ash. The neighbouring waterfalls of Chamarel rise from the moors and the native plant life. The site possesses a rare beauty. At Chamarel Village you can enjoy the taste of typical Mauritian cuisine.
Yemen - Yemen Reserve may not be the largest game reserve on the island, but there is still lots to see. You will be able to get close to the herds of deer, as well as admire some splendid species of Mauritian fauna. A few rustic kiosks available in the reserve provide an unobstructed view of the sea. There you can sip a local punch while watching the sun going down.
