Tamarin Beach

Located on the southwest coast of Mauritius, Tamarin Beach sits on the opposite side of a river to Montage du Rempart mountain. Originally brought to wider international attention by surfers, a gap in Tamarin Beach’s coral reef allows large waves to reach its white sands.

Surrounded by salt flats, Tamarin Beach extends close to 1.5 kilometres in length, although much of its size is lost to the incoming waves at high tide. Although there are few facilities at Tamarin Beach, it does get quite crowded at times, and is the start point for both dolphin-spotting trips and angling adventures.
