The name Flic en Flac is thought to come from the old Dutch name, ‘Fried Landt Flaak’, or ‘Free and Flat Land’. Flic en Flac, off the Port Louis-Tamarin road, lies at the bottom of a 3Km straight road running through cane fields. It is not as cute and carefree as its name suggests. Rather, it is an increasingly busy holiday village that lies and relies on a great stretch of beach and caters for the middle range in the market rather than the budget level, which prefers Tamarin.
This is the surfing center of Mauritius, although you can go for weeks without seeing a surfer. The character of the place is more laid-back than Flic en Flac and rougher around the edges.
