Maritim Beach

Is it true that the beach at Maritim is rocky and disappointing for swimming

Like most Mauritian beaches there will be rocky outcrops due to it being a volcanic island. Usually during the development phase the rocks are gathered into specific areas to allow clear areas of beach. All hotels will have a cordoned off section for swimming to keep bathers safe from boats etc. Some people feel these areas are too small but most people just like to cool off in the sea - not swim for miles.

From the pictures of the hotel there is a clear section of beach which looks ideal for swimming. Hopefully someone with first hand knowledge will post a specific reply.

You're welcome. We stayed at the nearby Le Victoria hotel and had a fantastic holiday. Maritim is on my bucket list! If you are into snorkeling there is a marine reserve very close to the Maritim. Hotel boat will take you out 2 or 3 times per day.

Hi,

Near the hotel there is a small reef just off the beach, which is great for watching fish - however moved a bit further down and it is clear, so great for swimming from
