Pointe aux Sables Beach

Pointe aux Sables Beach - Mauritius
© helloworld18

Pointe aux Sables Beach is located on the north-western side of Mauritius. It sits beside the fishing village of the same name, and is dotted with local fishing boats in and out of the warm Indian Ocean waters as a result.

Pointe aux Sables Beach has yellow sand, rather than the white coral sand of much of the island’s coast, though this takes nothing away from the scene as a whole. The beach is backed by grassy dunes, while the shallows are met by a row of rocks that can make getting to deeper water to swim a little difficult but still worthwhile.
