Tamarin is amiably the dead-end. Regardless of having a great beach and being within a short drive of some fascinating sights, it’s hard to imagine anywhere less likely to see a development fury the likes of its nearby neighbour Flic en Flac. People still do come here for the surf from May to September, as seen by a couple of surfing shops on the main road, but candidly it otherwise feels like an onwardstownship. Tamarin’s most noteworthyedifice is the Shree Sathya Sai Semelan Centre, painted an implausible bright pink and orange. Around Tamarin the neighbouring backdrop is drier and harsher than elsewhere in Mauritius.
