Now back to our beautiful beach.
Pointe d’Esny’s coastline is mainly residential with many secondary houses. And, the region typically comes to life during holidays and weekends. It is the ideal place to recharge your batteries, away from the hustle and bustle of tourist areas and major towns.
Pointe d’Esny is a true tropical paradise, with a beautiful white sand beach, a transparent lagoon and a light sea breeze that helps lift spirits in the summer heat. There’s nothing quite like a dip in the warm water, before peacefully devouring a book on a beach towel.
Although discreet, the area is a well-known kitesurfing and windsurfing spot. Every year, high-level international competitions take place in Pointe d’Esny. These include the Indian Ocean Windsurfing Championship and the Hydrofoil Pro Tour.
Pointe d’Esny is also the starting point for those who wish to visit île aux Aigrettes. The islet is a nature reserve, home to a protected forest and to rare species such as the pink pigeon, the kestrel, the giant tortoise of Aldabra or the ornate day gecko. Guided two-hour eco tours are on offer there for those wishing to discover the islet and some of Mauritius’ endemic fauna and flora.
