Rivière des Galets & Ilôt Sancho

Not Rated


Half Day

Tour Type

Daily Tour






Riviere des Galets is a rather unique beach found in the south of Mauritius, owing to its peculiar setting. Sand is barely visible to completely absent on this beach, but instead the location is covered with tiny pebbles which have turned smooth with the constant action of the waves crashing on them. Although the waters are not suitable for swimming, the beach is a must visit for the sheer calming beauty of the strong waves crashing on the pebbly beach.

At just 2 m from the beach, lies Ilot Sanchot, which actually is an islet of its own but is so close to land that it is easily accessible by foot during low tide with the water barely reaching one’s knees. The islet offers a perfect point of view of the majestic ocean waves.
