Mauritius: Many tourists ripped off after paying ice cream on public beaches between 37 and 50 euros
Some merchants operating near public beaches and without legal authorization to work, particularly in the North of Mauritius, selling ice creams between 1,500 rupees (37 euros) and 2,000 rupees (50 euros) to tourists or expatriates totally gullible.

Beach Authority, which manages the Mauritian coastline is thus powerless to stem the phenomenon since no law govern according to it the price of ice in Mauritius.

The dishonest practice would even begin to spread to other areas of the island.

Beach Authority still alerted the Ministry of Commerce on this major problem for the image of Mauritius on the outside, as indicated by the Director of

Beach Authority, Subash Seeruttun in the newspaper L'Express of Mauritius.

On the side of coastguard who patrol the beaches and that track retailers ice cream offense, it is argued that no formal complaint has yet been filed by tourists aware or not of the scam.
