Not only does Mauritius have one of the most beautiful starlit skies, but also one of the most beautiful sunsets on earth. A tropical sunset is one of those rare sights that captivates the imagination. A mesmerizing phenomenon with shades of orange, purple, red and yellow that pierce us to the last glow of the sun descending below the horizon. Despite having developed from a small fishing village to a major tourist area, Flic en Flac beach is still one of the best spots to watch the sunset in Mauritius. With fishing boats in the lagoon, the contemplation of the sunset is even more mesmerizing. Flic en Flac is also a very good place for snorkeling.
