Flic en Flac, previously written as ‘Flic en Flacq’, is since some years a faved public beach in Mauritius and for residents of the mid lands and the west, there is no better lagoon for swimming, and relaxing. That said, the village of Flic en Flac comprises of other inner regions and one of them is Klondike, near the Estate of Anna. The picture above shows the ‘Corsaire’s Bay’ (Baie du Corsaire) at the end of Klondike, a very secluded part where cliffs and rocks meet the sea directly and the beach unfortunately is further up the cliffs.
Nature lovers will love this spot for its tranquility and fishermen will love it for the fruitful catches. However this part of the island was in the past carrying certain rumors that Corsaires and Pirates from the 17th Century burried their treasures in the surroundings and this rumor grew so strong during some years that treasure-hunters round the island couldn’t resist to verify this rumor. Many diggers gathered in search for this hidden treasure during the years 1900 – 1910… but the end result proved the ‘rumors’. Nothing was found.
It was believed that the loot was worth Rs 25 million… and for early 20th century… that meant an enormous value, and if ever that was true and was found, that would mean ‘jackpot’!
Below a little gallery of the current beauties of the surroundings. Enjoy!
