"Centre de Flacq is a world away from picture-postcard Belle Mare and the coast. Here there’s the chaotic bustle you’d expect to find in the east coast’s main settlement, and while there’s nothing much to see or do, it’s well worth an excursion if you’re bored of the beach. Five kilometres west of Centre de Flacq along the road to Quartier Militaire, the Flacq Union of Estates Limited sugar mill is the largest and most modern on the island. Tours of the plant take place during the cane harvest (July to early November); phone ahead to find out when they run.

Getting there and away 
Centre de Flacq is a regional gateway and gets direct buses from Port Louis’ Immigration Square bus station and Rose Hill, Curepipe, Mahébourg (via the coast road), Trou d’Eau Douce, Palmar and Poste Lafayette. 

Taxis leave from near the market in Centre de Flacq and charge around Rs 300 to go to Belle Mare or Trou d’Eau Douce." Source: Lonely Planet Guide

“The District of Flacq is sub-divided into 22 VCAs (Village Council Areas) which comprise of: Bel Air Riviere Seche, Bon Accueil, Brisee Verdiere, Camp de Masque, Camp de Masque Pave, Camp Ithier, Centre de Flacq, Clemencia, Ecroignard, Grande Riviere Sud Est, Lalmatie, L'Aventure, Mare la Chaux, Medine Camp de Masque, Olivia, Poste de Flacq, Quatre Cocos, Queen Victoria, Saint Julien, Saint Julien d'Hotman, Sebastopol and Trou d'Eau Douce.

Brief History
Flacq (which is a name of Dutch origin) was an area known to the Dutch during their occupation of the island during the 17th and 18th centuries. The area of Moka was developed with the arrival of the French in the 18th century. The District of Flacq derives its name from the region's topography (the name Flacq is derived from the Dutch word 'vlakt' meaning 'flat') and this inspired the Dutch in naming this large Eastern District.

The quality of the soil made Flacq an ideal choice for the Dutch to establish a garden and numerous important settlements (notably in Trou d'Eau Douce which they named Cronenburg and in Grande Riviere Sud-Est). During the French period of occupation, Flacq was divided into 8 townships: Flacq, La Mare aux Lubines, Les Quatre Cocos, Trou d'Eau Douce, La Riviere Seche, La Mare aux Fougeres, Le Camp de Masque and Les Trois Ilots.
