Locals enjoy viewing the early sunrise with a cup of coffee and some fruits. The stunning sunrise views and the talcum-white sands plunged in rosy pink glow makes the complete scene quite picturesque.

This feature is exclusively limited to those staying at Four Seasons Resort Mauritius at Anahita. Although they can easily take a view at the sunrise while being plunged in their private pools, they do have another option to take part in a sunrise speedboat cruise. The cruise would take you to the nearby Ile Aux Cerf island, which is also eminent for its softly shelving sands and a wide array of aquatic life.
How to Reach - It is a 45-minute drive from the SIR SEEWOOSAGUR RAMGOOLAM INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT. The resort has its own helicopter services as well which lands you directly at the resort’s helipad.

Located just south of the old capital of Mauritius, Mahebourg has located the glorious Pointe D’Esny beach, which is regarded as the best on the island. The beach is covered with small resorts, guesthouses, luxury apartments, and villas. Hence the beach could be found mostly deserted at dawn. So, you can spend me-time on the beach watching the spectacular sunrise.
