Long Beach is a modern resort on the longest and widest stretch of white sand coastline of any Mauritian resort. Beyond the beach, the tropical lagoon with its crystal clear blue waters and rare coral formations is a snorkeling paradise.
The focus of the resort's layout and its life is the urban-style piazza with restaurants, shops and bars. Mixing contemporary architecture with local materials, buildings integrate with the resort's extensive lush tropical gardens. A unique architectural feature is the adjustable “wind breaks” that modulate the offshore breezes.
There are 255 rooms arranged in three crescents, all with a view of the ocean and their own beach space, and where indoor and outdoor living come together. There is a good range of accommodation, and many rooms and suites interconnect for families with children.
Long Beach offers a great variety of eating experiences, from Asian to relaxed beach chic and Italian deli and children's menus are available. The waiter service on the beach makes for a very relaxed vacation.
Suffice to say, that the resort's location means that watersports feature very heavily. From kayaking to laser sailing, from snorkeling to windsurfing, guests have a fantastic choice and all of which is inclusive. The Equa Spa is tailor made for the resort, and offers a range of treatments.
There are 255 rooms arranged in three 'crescents'. Every room has a king-sized bed, a view of the Indian Ocean and a minimum 109m² of its own beach space. Their contemporary design and refined furnishings are in perfect harmony with the apple green, coral red, white and ash grey hues of the décor. 42'' LCD flat-screen TVs receive satellite sports and entertainment and international news. All rooms have fully stocked mini-bars, tea and coffee making facilities and a separate shower, toilet and bath.

It has its own pool and children can play tennis, go windsurfing, have a swimming clinic as well as go on excursions. This is free for children aged four to 11. There is a baby and toddler room for younger children who must be accompanied by a parent or babysitter (available at an additional charge).
For teenagers there is the Waves Teens Club, also located in the Sports Center, and offers free membership to 12 to 18 year olds with a special program of sports and recreation as well as adventure outings and excursions. Regular evening get togethers are organized, including beach barbecues around a campfire and pizza nights.

There are three swimming pools, one large heated pool surrounded by loungers, a fresh water infinity pool which is for adults only, and at the fitness center, there is also a lap pool.

The outdoor spa pavilion is the perfect setting for massages overlooking the lagoon. The resort also has a state of the art gym with a good selection of cardiovascular and other fitness equipment. Guests can arrange a personal trainer during their stay.

Location & Directions
East Coast, Mauritius
Long Beach is on the east coast of Mauritius, on one of the widest stretches of beaches and close to the beautiful Belle Mare. This coast of Mauritius is dotted with stunning coves and lagoons and tiny cove-beaches ensuring shelter from the cool southeast trade winds. The island of Mauritius is located in the Indian Ocean, off the southeast coast of the African continent, and 900km east of Madagascar.
When to go
Mauritius enjoys a typically tropical climate with year-round heat, although the southeast trade winds help it never to feel too muggy. The summer months are from December to April, when it can nevertheless be extremely humid, and the winter, such as it is, runs from May to November, and is cooler and drier.
The best months to visit Mauritius are May to early December. January and February, the peak cyclone months, are best avoided by water-sports enthusiasts and divers. Cyclones rarely hit Mauritius (although Rodrigues has suffered far more regularly than the mainland) but cyclones way out at sea can bring days of squally rain.
Coastal temperatures range between 25°C and 33°C in summer and between 18°C and 24°C in winter. On the plateau it will be some 5°C cooler. The highlands are also the wettest part of the island – it can rain here at any time of year, and even when it’s not raining the area can be cloaked in low-lying cloud. When the winds are at their strongest in July and August it can be blustery on the east coast, though the breeze brings welcome relief in summer.
Apart from the Christmas-New Year peak, Mauritius doesn’t really have high and low seasons. The situation is more dependent on outside factors (such as the French school vacations, which cause a big increase in demand and prices in August).
