Mont Choisy Beach, just a few minutes walk from the western gates of the estate, is among the most beautiful in Mauritius. Stretching almost 3 kilometres from Trou aux Biches to Pointe aux Canonniers, this is the island’s longest beach: a gently curving strand of golden sand lined with a shady grove of filao trees on one side and by gentle, crystal-clear aquamarine water on the other. It’s the perfect beach for long walks, frequent swims and romantic sunsets.

The beach is wide, and the sand is powdery. There is a forest of Casuarina, most commonly known as the filaos trees, which adds to the exotic touch of the beach. There is a large surface area where you can relax under the shades of the trees, an ideal setting for the ocean.
There is a main road passing in front of the beach for a few hundred meters and there are three bus stops in front of several areas of the beach.
Since this beach is very accessible, it makes it a favorite destination for tourists and locals. There are many vendors hiding from the scorching sun under the trees, so if you fancy a snack during the day, you can choose between a variety of dishes.

What makes this beach so special is the white sandy beach that curves around the coast, creating a beautiful bay with turquoise water. Mont Choisy beach is another perfect place to watch the sunset.
