The village of Trou aux Biches

One passes from Pointe aux Piments to Trou aux Biches without really realizing it. The village, which has no real center, has a few stores and mini-markets, several restaurants, and the usual procession of large hotels and bungalows along the coastline. It is the beaches that change. The rocks disappear in favor of long sandy strips where it is good to walk, run, stroll, doze in the shade or share a picnic with a group of Mauritians... The beach of Trou aux Biches is one of the most beautiful of the island, shaded by filaos, covered with fine white sand, perfectly exposed to the north-west and hemmed in by a magnificent lagoon. The beach of Mont Choisy which closes the bay to the north is also superb and this amazing place is just 26 minute of drive for the 19kms which separate it from the capital city of Port-Louis.
