Port Louis - Pointe des Sables beach

In the municipality of Port-Louis, this beach is only accessible by boat. We left in a boat with a fisherman. Thirty minutes later, we come to the Pointe des Sables beach .....

Morning departure from Port-Louis ...

The place is quiet, few people...

Soon we realize that the place is not as idyllic as it seems. If at first this beach seems perfec, it's still quickly disappointed. The water is not very clear, the seabed is not very clear, at times you sink into a kind of algal mats, we have already known better!

A few meters from the edge we can observe beautiful starfish ...

After this disappointing swimming, and after giving the starfish to the sea, we find the other defects that range, but not least ... the mosquitoes! The beach is invaded. Proliferation "Yen-yen," mosquitoes invisible , very tiny, but very virulants! If these mosquitoes are supposed to act in the dark, there they were active all day. It quickly becomes unpleasant if not unbearable ... The fisherman who accompanies us will do his best during the day to make us the place nice by burning coconut blades which theoretically should have run away our invaders. Not very effective anyway. So look forward to leaving this place. The good remain of this day is very good meal prepared by our guide: ti-punch, fritters, fish broth, colombo chicken, rice, coconut ice to the churn, really excellent.

Back to Port-Louis

We will continue to think about this beach for a few days yet, because of the itching caused by bites from yen-yen, souvenirs, memories .... :))
