A tropical gem
Le Chaland Beach is located in the southeast of Mauritius, and is a tropical gem in the heart of the Indian Ocean.To reach Le Chaland Beach, it’s just a scenic 15 minute drive from the main airport of Mauritius, Sir Seewoosagur Ramgoolam International Airport, where you have the chance to observe sugar cane fields and papaya groves en route.
The tropical climes of Le Chaland Beach have perfect all year round temperatures, of around 22°C from June to September and 36°C from October to April, making it an idyllic sunbathing spot.
When you’re not relaxing on the beach, you can head out on a sunset cruise, roam the rolling tea plantations, enjoy a taste of the tropics at a rum distillery, or play a round of golf at a nearby golf course that boasts ocean views. You’re also only a ten minute drive from Mahebourg, a historical town where you can unearth this island nation’s naval history and rich cultural heritage.
Close to Le Chaland Beach are the protected nature reserves of Île aux Aigrettes, where guided tours under the shade of ebony tree canopies take you on an eco adventure teeming with rare wildlife. The endangered coral reefs at Blue Bay Marine Park are a unique place to don your snorkelling gear and appreciate underwater worlds.

Mauritius is a year-round destination, with summer and winter months offering something different. The summer months, from October through to April, are perfect for beach lovers - days are long and temperatures are in the high 20s. There is the odd chance of a cyclone in the south of the island, though. The winter months (during the UK summer) are a little cooler, in the early 20s, so are ideal for hiking and exploring. If you’re planning on diving, the summer months are your best bet – the waters are warmer and (usually) calmer, and there’s more sea life around.
Visas are not required for Mauritius. You will receive a stamp in your passport valid for 60 days.
Tipping in Mauritius is appreciated, but not expected. In restaurants you can leave the small change or round the bill up if you received excellent service. Ensure you give your tip directly to the person whom you wish to receive it.
