To the north-west, the famous beaches to be the most beautiful of the islands follow one another. If some prefer to bask on the beach of Mont Choisy, others like more the landscapes of Pointe aux Piments, with its small creeks studded with rocks along the coast. Climatewise, less exposed to the wind, this coast is little affected by the rain and the temperatures there are among the warmest throughout year.
The east, after the south, is the region that has retained its former aspect. The climate is pleasant all summer thanks to the light sea breeze which tempers the strong heat. During the winter, the coastline may be subject to cooler winds.
More protected from the tourist affluence than the North coast, the West Coast still has a good number of beaches. For the climate, this region being protected from the prevailing winds all the year, the temperatures there are noticeably warmer than on the other parts of the island, except, perhaps, the North coast.
Finally, the south regions of Mauritius are rich in history, the villages that follow one another along the coastal road did not develop like the other cities of the country. Between plantations, forests and vast lagoons little frequented, the South is far from the seaside pretensions of the North.
