Travellers' Choice 2018 Winner
Certificate of Excellence
On the West coast of Mauritius in Tamarin famous for its sunny climate, charming fishing village, magnificent sunsets and dolphins. The River House Bed and Breakfast is beside the river and yet next to the Indian Ocean with its waves splashing onto the sands of legendary Tamarin Bay beach. Enjoy surfing, swimming, fishing from a rowboat on the river or a round of golf on a professional 18-hole golf course just behind the house.
