Summary of the Beach Inspectors

In the lagoon of Blue Bay everything revolves around the colour blue and it almost seems as if the meaning of the colour blue was reinvented here. The bay has the largest coral reef of the island and is therefore a popular destination for tourists. It is home to over 50 different kinds of coral and many tropical fish. With a bit of luck you might even spot lobsters and tortoises in their natural habitat. Snorkelling is the best way to discover the impressive Marine Park.

Blue Bay - Snorkelling in the bluest lagoon of the island

Blue Bay got its name from the incredible blue of the water in the lagoon. This idyllic beach in the south-east of the island is surrounded by filao trees. Especially during the week the beach is not very busy, as apart from a few street vendors there are no offerings for tourists. At the weekend local families come here to have a cosy picnic in the shade under the trees and to enjoy the idyllic view. The airport is only a few minutes away and from the beach you can watch the large passenger planes flying overhead.

Blue Bay is always the first place mentioned in the travel guides when it comes to snorkelling on the island. Blue Bay Marine Park is the largest intact coral reef of Mauritius. There are over 50 kinds of coral here and you can explore these by glass-bottom boat, snorkelling or diving. At the beach there are more than a dozen outlets offering glass-bottom boat tours. The locals have mixed feelings about these tours, as the fuel from the boats pollutes the water and the anchoring and the feeding of the fish permanently damages the coral reef. The best and most environmentally friendly way to explore the beautiful Marine Park is by snorkelling.

Kiters and windsurfers will also enjoy Blue Bay as the wind conditions are good here. Bring your own equipment and let the wind propel you along Blue Bay.
