Top Places to Stay as a Digital Nomad in Mauritius

As a digital nomad my top places to stay in Mauritius are either the north or west coast regions.


North Coast


This covers areas like Grand Baie, Trou aux Biches, Mont Choisy and Pereybere with some of the best beaches in the world, boasting crystal clear waters and white sandy beaches.


The north offers a mix of locals, long stay expats and digital nomads with access to activities to suit families and solo travelers there seems to be something for everyone.


Rental properties tend to be more expensive in this region because of the ease of access to some of the most exclusive hotels, beaches and activities however, despite this it still remains the most popular region to stay on a short or long term basis.


Activities: The north offers flat waters so stand up paddleboarding, kayaking, snorkelling, kitesurfing and diving are the most popular watersports, and it is pretty safe with the reef as protection. Horse-riding has become more popular on the island with more riding schools available in the North from the more serious competitors who prefer showjumping or dressage or a more relaxed atmosphere.


Shopping: Plenty of shopping malls and supermarkets in this region namely La Croisette – Grand Baie, Mahogany Shopping Mall, Super U, Intermart and Winners offering a variety.


Co-Working Spaces: Bloom Café, Quartier des Serres and Mahogany Shopping Mall, Super U (inside on the first floor) and La Croisette – Grand Baie.


Nightlife: There are more bars and nightclubs in the north namely, N’Joy which plays live music almost every night, Jazz Bar Grand Baie, Banana Grill, OMG and many more.


Weather: Hot, humid and the driest region with temperatures usually reaching around 30 degrees Celsius or more from October – April.



West Coast


This covers Flic en Flac, Tamarin, La Gaulette and Le Morne and is less crowded than the North. Being on the west coast means you are not too far from the north or south regions and if you have your own rental car getting around and visiting places is easy. It is also quite a mountainous region which means you can spend your weekends hiking and getting a spectacular view of the island.


Rental properties tend to be less expensive in this region so if you are not too concerned about having everything on your doorstep and looking for a more peaceful and less crowded setting then the west coast could be for you with access to waves all year round.


The West coast is also not too far from the famous Black River National Park, where many people spend their weekends hiking to the waterfalls and seeing the natural wildlife.


Activities: The beaches here are a mix of flat water and waves so for anyone that is keen on surfing the west coast is probably the best region with the local surf school in Tamarin and you can also do diving, hiking, snorkelling and stand up paddleboarding.


Shopping: Bagatelle Shopping Mall, Super U (Tamarin), Cascavelle Shopping Mall, Ruisseau Creole.


Co-Working Spaces: Bagatelle Shopping Mall, Cascavelle Shopping Mall and Ruisseau Creole.


Nightlife: Veranda Tamarin and Kenzi Bar Flic en Flac.
