Tamarin is pleasantly dead-end. Despite having a great beach and being within a short drive of some interesting sights, it’s hard to imagine anywhere less likely to see a development frenzy the likes of its nearby neighbour Flic en Flac. If anything, Tamarin’s time in the sun (metaphorically at least) has been and gone: it was here that people flocked when surfing suddenly took off in Mauritius in the 1970s. People still do come here for the surf from May to September, as witnessed by a couple of surfing shops on the main road, but frankly it otherwise feels like a forgotten town. Tamarin's most notable building is the Shree Sathya Saj Semelan Centre,painted an incredible bright pink and orange.

Around Tamarin the surrounding landscape is drier and harsher than elsewhere in Mauritius. Salt production is a major industry in the area and the town is encircled by salt evaporation ponds, which give a rather barren feel to the outskirts."

Riviere Noire district has many attractions. The southwest coast is the centre for big game fishing and to a lesser extent diving and surfing. It boasts good long beaches and the islands best nature reserve, the Macchabee forest and Riviere Noire Gorges. In the north, most of coastal plain is comprised of cane fields but in the south, where the Port Louis road hits the coast at Tamarin, the plateau drops steeply towards the sea.”

Shellorama Museum
