Summary of the Beach Inspectors

Albion Beach is a beach where the Mauritians go to look for peace and quiet or to do some fishing. The long, sandy beach is perfect for lengthy walks and the clear water is great for swimming. The size of the beach means that it is very easy to find a space to yourself even on the hottest of days. There is an impressive liana forest at the edge of the beach and if you are lucky you might even spot long-tailed macaque monkeys there.

Albion Beach - Beach with a vine forest

Albion Beach in the east of Mauritius is divided into a private and a public area which is called Albion Beach 1. To get to the beach you have to go through liana and pine-tree forests. With a little patience you might even spot monkeys at the top of the trees.

On arrival you will find an extremely quiet sandy beach, almost 700 metres in length. Privacy can be found at the sides of the beach and in the shade of the forest where you can settle down on a bench or in a pavilion.
It is mainly only locals who use Albion Beach. In the water there are many wooden boats to be seen, which the traditional fishermen take out to sea. Local families relax under the trees, sit in the pavilion or read a book on a bench. There is no stress at Albion Beach.

Albion Beach is not really suitable for surfing, kiting or diving, but snorkelling is certainly an option. The water is turquoise-blue, clear and very shallow, which is ideal for families with small children. However, because of the sharp shells on the beach and in the water and also because of the poisonous stonefish, it is recommended that you wear appropriate footwear. You should also bring your own food and drink, as you cannot buy anything here at the beach.
