(Nouvelle Decouverte, Saint Pierre, Mauritius)
Back along the northern coast of island nation Mauritius is Mont Choisy Beach. It’s located on the northwest tip, just north of Trou aux Biches and is the longest beach in Mauritius. The resort area here is also named Mont Choisy.
Mont Choisy Beach – Mauritius What makes this special is the gentle way the strand of white sand bends around the coast creating a bay of beautiful, turquoise water, lined with casuarina trees. These trees provide shade and a perfect backdrop for the ocean. A word about the casuarina tree: it’s nice and shady, but has a thorny pine-cone-like seed pod that can be found under the branches. They don’t feel good when you step on them.
Since this beach is very accessible, it’s a favorite among both tourists and locals. And, little wonder. There’s the beach and also a nice soccer field close by. Relax, people watch, enjoy, repeat.
