The East in detail

Flights & getting there

The main public transport hub for eastern Mauritius is the inland town of Centre de Flacq. You'll have to change here if you're arriving by bus from Port Louis, the Central Plateau towns or Mahébourg in the south.

There are onward connections from Centre de Flacq to villages along the east coast, although some services are pretty infrequent. You can bank on bus transport from Centre de Flacq to Palmar and Poste Lafayette (with continuing service to Rivière du Rempart), but there are no buses to Belle Mare. Figure on at least Rs 600 to Rs 700 for a taxi between the coastal towns and Centre de Flacq.
