Gris Gris Beach, Mauritius Overview

Set at the southernmost tip of Mauritius, Gris Gris Beach is known for its wild and pristine landscape. It is located close to the village of Souillac and boasts of a black rocky coastline. The region is surrounded by rough cliffs that abruptly slope down to the ocean. These cliffs are made from basaltic rocks and offer the best backdrop imaginable. Gris Gris Beach does not have a coral barrier. Hence the waves are wild and huge.

The beach is highly contrasting to the other southern beaches of Mauritius that are known for their calm waters. Due to the presence of strong currents, swimming is strictly prohibited at Gris Gris Beach. It is better to stay away from the water and hike the trail that rests behind the parking area to reach the Crying Rock. The unparalleled view of the large waves crashing against the jagged terrain is worth admiring from here. No wonder, Gris Gris Beach is a magical escape and gives a complete makeover of mind.
