Friendly Flacq has two of almost everything, KFC, Winners, Galaxy, telecom, Ipanema, B&S, Island Haze...The list is almost endless. But what it has most is double friendly locals. A must visit when school lets out or anytime. Named after the Dutch word for flat, vlakt.

Hi Bryan and Riki. I am originally from Flacq. I used to teach Modern College in 1970. Just want to add the octagonal extension to the court house used to be the old Post Office, the church is St. Ursule Roman Catholic and the KFC opposite Modern College is one of the first to open in Mauritius. Great to see your videos on YouTube. Unfortunately due to the corona pandemic, I have not been able to travel to Mauritius. I was last there in Nov. 2019. Keep enjoying your stay in Mauritius and stay safe.
