Making its way on the list of the most breathtaking beaches of Mauritius is the Bras D’eau Public Beach. Bras D’eau is more or less like a small bay that is inside the lagoon of Poste Lafayette, and since the beach overlooks the south, you can enjoy both the sunrise and the sunset as well; one of its kind in the east. It undoubtedly qualifies as one of the best places in Mauritius during the night as you can see the Milky Way!
What attracts the tourists and locals to this beach is the stunning stretch of glittering sand nestled amidst the tropical greenery. Such characteristics make it the perfect location for an ultimate family picnic. You can ease away all your stress and anxiety by going for a day out in this haven of calm waters and magnificent shores.
The presence of dark rocks in the seafloor amplifies its appeal with the unbelievably clear water. Such a combination is rare to see in beaches, and Bras D'eau is home to one of the most beautiful displays of nature. The footfall on this beach is very beautiful, and that is one fact that it is untouched and unspoilt regardless its beauty.
The rocky waters may not be ideal for swimming, but as the wind is up quite often, kite surfing in the well-protected and shallow bay is something you must not miss. Generally, the locals come to the beach on public holidays and during weekends, creating a fun and chilled-out ambience.
If you happen to be in Mauritius on the New Year's Eve and you want it to witness something magical, it is highly recommended that you visit Bras D'eau right before midnight. The opposite side of the lagoon has some of the prestigious hotels of Mauritius. As a treat to their guests, a magnificent display of New Years Eve firework goes on for an hour. You can feast your eyes and senses to this spectacle with no expenses paid!
