East or west coast Mauritius? How to choose 

Choosing between the East and West coast of Mauritius largely depends on your travel preferences and what you’re looking to experience.

On the other hand, the East coast of Mauritius offers a more tranquil and laid-back atmosphere, with pristine beaches, lush tropical landscapes, and a slower pace of life. It’s perfect for those seeking relaxation, nature exploration, and a peaceful retreat away from the crowds.  

Whether you’re drawn to the lively energy of the West or the serene beauty of the East, both coasts of Mauritius have their own unique charm and allure to offer.
