Hi! Is it really forbidden to set up your own parasol on the beach in front of the hotels? Yesterday we were driven away by a guard at Trou-aux-Biches.
You can lie there but not use a parasol, he said🙄

The beach is public up to the highest tide. If you have put your umbrella where it is private, yes they can ask you to remove it

Dont do it. It makes hotel staff confuse when serving their client who paid full service which means every food and drinks free. Waiter will have to bear the cost if they give wrongly free drinks to non hotel members. This is why they dont allow outsiders to be part of hotels. Some waiter are shy and does not ask before giving free drinks

If u put up your parasol on the beach in front of hotel below high water mark u can if the hotel doesn’t like it then it’s there problem a few years ago hotels tried to encroach on to the beach but had u draw back behind highwater mark

Bottom line is all beaches in Mauritius belong to the People. If you put up your Umbrella below the highest point of water mark then they cannot ask you to move. Tell them to call the police and the coast guard.

There is not a problem with this 😡
As has been said many times on here upto the high tide mark (end of sand) all beaches are public! Any problems, just call the police 👮‍♀️ see what the hotel does then! They are acting illegally and often use threatening behaviour!
Keep all our beaches 🏝️public for everyone to enjoy 👍

You can set your parasol up till to the high tide water mark. Beyond that, it may not be permissible by law.
