Over the years, Mauritius has become more popular with tourists for its reputation as being one of the most luxurious tourists destinations in the world. One of the main strength of attraction to tourists is the clean, magnificent white sandy public beaches and idyllic lagoons. Therefore, no effort should be spared to maintain our beaches clean and safe in the interest of all beach users and the country at large.
Presently, there are some 134 public beaches in the Republic of Mauritius (122 in Mauritius and 12 in Rodrigues) that are managed and controlled by the Beach Authority. In the near future, nearly all the beaches will be proclaimed as public beaches and the onus rests on the Authority for the safety and security of all beach users as well as their maintenance and embellishment in a sustainable manner. Our main objective is to create five-star beaches with a view to contribute significantly in the mitigation of the impacts of climate change.
