Luxury Le Chaland Beach Holidays

A tropical gem

Le Chaland Beach

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.

Things to do

Île aux Aigrettes

Witness the Mauritius the first explorers saw 500 years ago. Île aux Aigrettes is a protected 26-hectare nature reserve on an islet off the southeast coast of Mauritius. Île aux Aigrettes is arguably one of the best ecotourism experiences in Mauritius. The Mauritian Wildlife Foundation is responsible for the reserve and offers guided tours with experienced naturalists. With their expertise, you have the chance to observe rare endemic and endangered species, including Aldabra giant tortoises, the endangered pink pigeon, ebony trees, and wild orchids.

Serene experience

Embrace serenity during your luxury holiday in Mauritius as you take part in private and group yoga, Tai Chi, and meditation classes on the beautiful white sands of Le Chaland Beach.

Blue Bay Marine Park

Blue Bay Marine Park is a conservation area located in Pointe d'Esny & Blue Bay where you’ll find endangered fuchsia-coloured coral reefs, schools of vibrant fish, and sea turtles. Aboard a glass-bottomed boat to witness these underwater forests for yourself, or go snorkelling.


Play a round of golf with incredibly breathtaking views of the ocean and majestic mountains surrounding the crater lake of Grand Bassin. The staff at Anantara Iko Mauritius Resort & Villas will arrange a transfer to the scenic golf course at Avalon Golf Estate, which is a 40 minutes drive from Le Chaland Beach.

When to go

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.

Visa Information

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.
