Pointe d'Esny beach is one of the many beaches in Mauritius located in the Grand Port area. Escape the hustle and bustle of Blue Bay Beach and visit this hidden gem on the outskirts of southern Mahebourg. To get there, you have to be careful. Indeed, its entrance from the coastal road can easily be missed, caught between the residential properties on the coast. Without infringing on private property, the only way to access Pointe d'Esny beach by land is to cross a small 150 meter long path from the coastal road. The path is two meters wide and is located between two private properties in the center of Pointe d'Esny. You will not find any signs, public restrooms, snack bars, parking areas or any other type of facility here. What you will find, however, is a good kilometer of fine white sand, with a shallow sandy bottom and absolutely crystal clear waters. This quiet beach is in stark contrast to the tourist trade and bustle of nearby Blue Bay Beach. With at least 2 kilometers off the reef, this beach offers shallow and calm waters. Aside from the local residents, chances are you'll have the beach pretty much to yourself. For a quiet day away from it all, this beach is hard to beat. Property prices at Pointe d'Esny are among the highest in Grand Port, and once you step onto the beach, it's easy to see why. The spot, which is located at the southern tip of the largest lagoon of the island offers a huge playground for the initiated. The crystal clear water makes each session a unique and memorable experience - from gliding over beautiful coral formations to a fantastic ride over an ancient wreck. The spot, which is not very popular because it is not very well known, enjoys a south-southeast wind coming from the open sea, making it the ideal place to practice this sport. Here, in any case - whether the wind blows from the North-North-East or South-South-East, the spot offers great experiences. The best time to practice this sport is in winter - with its very moderate tropical temperature, from June to October. Why? It is during this period that the South-East trade wind is at its optimum, turning the spot of Pointe d'Esny into a meeting place rated 10/10 by aficionados because of a consistent wind during the day (under a bright blue sunny sky) as well as at night (under a beautiful starry sky).
