The southernmost beach of Mauritius, Gris Gris, is far from the habitual white sandy ones with a calm blue lagoon but is still magnificent albeit in a different manner. Instead of white sand, you are greeted by a rocky cliff which descends steeply into the rough sea where huge waves are king. The absence of coral reef in this part of the island means the ocean waves reach the coast undisturbed, with all their might.
Take a stroll along the cliffs as you watch the waves crash and send showers of water. On the furthest right end of the cliff, you are offered a panoramic view of the cliffs and waves dancing violently off them.
Incidentally Gris Gris was also named of the puppy of Abbot de la Caille, a French cartographer who came to survey the island in 1753.
While visiting Gris Gris Beach in September 1886, the poet Paul Jean Toulet found the place ‘’full of terror and fatalism although not devoid of mildness’’
‘’Sweet beaches where my soul was born
And thou blooming Savanne
Soaked by the tears of the Ocean
And of the blazing sun”
Paul Jean Toulet (1867 – 1920)
