During our honeymoon we stayed in resort Canonnier Beachcomber Golf Resort & Spa https://www.beachcomber-hotels.com/ .


One of the best family resorts in Mauritius, stands proudly above the coastline on a historic peninsula. Canonnier Beachcomber enhances the authentic Mauritian atmosphere with commanding views over the northern islands and sparkling Indian Ocean, lush tropical gardens dotted with cascading pools and a string of secluded creeks.

Hotel’s infrastructure blends perfectly with the historical remnants – a beautiful combination of modernity and history. Located between Trou aux Biches and Grand Bay, the resort owns its historical cachet, protected by a myriad of creeks with awe-inspiring views on the northern islands.


The resort has successfully preserved the charm and authenticity of this historical site by conserving the ancient lighthouse, the remnants of the fortresses and tropical gardens.

There is also a hotel’s mini-golf, located on the northern island in the heart of a beautiful tropical garden with coconut palms, casuarinas and barbary.

We were happy with hotel service, friendly staff and delicious food in all their restaurants.


Open for lunch and dinner, Le Navigator Restaurant is offering a magnificent view of the ocean and northern islands. The restaurant brings to mind ancient colonial mansions. The spacious interior enclosed in glass houses a bar and opens onto two split-level terraces. Eighteenth-century canons are a reminder of the island’s historical past. One terrace is set on an open wooden deck overlooking the sea, while the other features tables set on the sand.

Moreover, at Le Navigator, gourmet cuisine delighted us with fresh fish and seafood.

The restaurant is also famous for its festive “lobster nights”.


Every sunset was unbelievably beautiful. Evening sunset sky was changing its colors from light pink into deep red and purple colors.

Magic atmosphere was everywhere specially walking along the resort’s territory enjoying lights on the trees and amazing sunsets. Truly Paradise!
