Anse La Raie Holidays

Lounging under a thatched-hut umbrella surrounded by the tropical shores of Anse La Raie, you’ll feel your cares effortlessly float away. A holiday in Anse La Raie gifts you with pure peace and total tranquillity.

The beach that hugs Anse La Raie's coast is tucked in a secluded spot beneath a rocky peninsula. Panoramic views stretch across the ocean toward the five islands located north of Mauritius' coastline. The beach offers spectacular kitesurfing, scuba diving, and snorkelling. Walk east towards the pristine beaches of Calodyne sur Mer and watch the reddish trululu (land crabs) peering from their tiny holes at low tide. Enjoy the sun set on another perfect day in Anse La Raie, the soft balmy rays blending with the tropical ocean breezes. Here the sound is a melody as it whispers in the beach's lush casuarinas.
