We are planning a trip to Mauritius - 4 adults and 4 kids(< 8 yrs) in early October 2013 Prefer a nice beach side resort that is somewhat mid-range (3 star or so). Another preference is to have a good snorkelling around - at least walkable from the beach. Found that there are a few near Troux Aux Biches and some near Grand Baie. I also saw a few near East coast. I am not sure if East coast is good for snorkelling.
Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated
