Due to its situation, the East of Mauritius has greater exposure to wind and rain at certain seasons than the west coast. However, thanks to some attractions - such as Ile aux Cerfs and excellent golf courses - and an important hotel infrastructure - especially in Trou d'Eau Douce and Belle Mare -, the eastern coast of Mauritius is a popular tourist destination.

From the international airport at Plaisance, the first resort that you find on the east coast is located at Anahita Beau Champ. It consists of the Four Seasons at Anahita, its 6828m, 18-hole par 72 golf course and the suites and villas of Anahita The Resort. The estate faces Ile aux Cerfs. It is recent (the golf course was created in 2008). As the more developed Bel Ombre estate in the South of the island, it is the result of the Mauritian "Integrated Resort Scheme".
This project aims at offering integrated tourist services for foreigners and at encouraging them to settle themselves in Mauritius.

A few kilometers further to the North, you get to Trou d'Eau Douce, which is the classic base for visitors to Ile aux Cerfs.
The latter, like the nearby island, Mangenie island, belong to the 5 star Le Touessrok hotel which is set at Trou d'Eau Douce.

Just on the outskirts of the city, there are three medium-sized hotels: the Tropical Hotel, the Silver Beach Hotel and Le Bougainville.

From Trou d'Eau Douce to Poste de Flacq, the touristic area stretches over about 12 kilometers on the eastern coastline with the successive resorts of Palmar, Belle Mare and Pointe de Flacq.


Hotel Touessrok, Mauritius

The 5 star Le Touessrok hotel at Trou d'Eau Douce owns two offshore islets: Ile Mangénie and Ile aux Cerfs. Mangénie Island is a haven of peace with beautiful sandy beaches. It hosts a restaurant and some areas which are reserved to the hotel guests.
 
Ile aux Cerfs, located just south of Ile Mangénie, has attractive beaches and a nice lagoon. It is open to tourists. Besides Le Touessrok guests, they come from all parts of Mauritius, most of them with a day-cruise or excursion. The island is home to a magnificent golf course, some restaurants and a few tourist shops. Some watersports are also available on the island.


Local Market, Mauritius
The market in Centre de Flacq on the east coast of Mauritius. On the picture: Pattypan squashes, bottle gourds, zucchini and green beans.

This covered market is held on Sunday at Centre de Flacq, a city and road junction located about 10 km from Belle Mare on the east side of Mauritius. In the market, you find all kinds of products, including clothing, kitchen equipment as well as fruit and vegetables. The market attracts people from the whole region. The concentration of stalls and the amount of buyers leave little room for sightseeing. Various shops are set around the market.

Many other open-air or covered markets are held on the island, including in Mahebourg, Port Louis (the central bazaar and markets in some suburbs), Quatre-Bornes, Rose Hill and Goodlands.
