The Flat nature of the land in flacq led the Dutch to choose that name for the eastern part of Mauritius. In fact, Flacq comes from the Dutch ‘Vlakt’ which means ‘flat’. The fertile soil encouraged the Dutch to experiment with various kinds of crops and to create important settlements in Flacq, particularly at Trou d’E au Douce and Grand Rivier South East.

The Touessrok, the Saint Geran and Belle Mare Plage Hotels, the famous Puits des Hollandais, the monuments in memory of  SMF soldiers who died at sea and of the victims of the aircrash of a ‘South African Airways plane’, the ‘Heidelberg’, the sugar estate of Fuel are all in Flacq district.

Flacq is one of the most important villages in Mauritius. This meeting point for inhabitants of the East boasts the country’s largest open air market. The extremely colourful market attracts a large number of people.
