The beach and village of Flic-en-Flac

On the central west coast of this stunning Indian-Ocean island off the coast of Africa, less than a half hour's drive from capital Port Louis, the quaint fishing village of Flic-en-Flac (the name thought to derive from the old Dutch fried landt flaak, meaning "free flat land," from when Mauritius was held by the Netherlands from the end of the 16th to the beginnng of the 18th century) is home to a thriving tourist industry centered around its 13 kilometres of coastline including a long, gorgeous, white-sand beach along a shallow, coral-reef-protected lagoon. This includes a variety of hotels, resorts, and guest houses for all budgets, along with plenty of restaurants, shops, bars, nightclubs, spas, and even a casino.
