Blue Bay is probably the most popular places to see in Mauritius for tourists. With its magnificent beaches and crystal-clear waters, it is certainly the place where you will want to spend a lot of time.
The Blue Bay Marine Park is located on the southeast part of the Mauritius island, and is near the airport and several hotels, which are within walking distance making it very convenient.
It is an amazing place where you can scuba dive, snorkel, surf, sail or enjoy any water sport you desire, or spend the day sunbathing with a tropical drink in your hand. No better way to relax and enjoy your vacation!
There are over 50 different species of corals, some of them very rare, in a unique network of reefs that break the oceans waves to protect the bay.
There are also many fish species in the shallower water that will make any snorkelling or diving a fantastic experience.
If you’re not an experienced diver, but still want to give it a go, you can do an introductory dive at Grand Bay.
Atop the marine park is ‘Ile des Deux Cocos’, an islet within the lagoon should also be on your list of what to do in Mauritius while in this area.
