Cap Malheureux Beach

Located on the northern tip of Mauritius, Cap Malheureux Beach can be found beside a small village of the same name. Although its warm Indian Ocean waters are ideal for swimming in, Cap Malheureux is better known as a departure point for boat and catamaran trips to Flat Island and its lighthouse, as well as the wildlife refuge of Round Island.

The mature trees that line Cap Malheureux Beach provide some natural shade on the white coral sands, which slip down into waters that provide excellent wreck diving opportunities – hence the beach’s name which translates to the ‘unhappy cape’.
