The beach of the InterContinental Resort in the lagoon of Balaclava Bay is unusual. The offshore reef is closer to the beach than anywhere else on Mauritius, which means that this is a great spot for snorkelling. The artificially created island only a few metres from the beach is perfect for watching the beautiful sunsets and for providing a very romantic setting for taking your marriage vows. The resort also has several pools and five restaurants which guarantees that you certainly won't regret your stay here.
InterContinental Resort Mauritius Beach - The sound of the ocean
The InterContinental Resort Mauritius is in the north-east of the island in the lagoon of the Balaclava Bay. This beach stands out from the others on the island because the offshore reef is closer to the beach than anywhere else on Mauritius,. Here you can watch from close-up as the powerful waves of the Indian Ocean crash towards the shore. The reef shelters the bay and you can safely spend time in the water and enjoy snorkelling to explore the underwater world of the reef and if you prefer things more relaxed then you can enjoy the view from the pool.
If you are relaxing on one of the numerous sun-loungers here you can see the artificial island which the hotel has created especially to hold wedding ceremonies. The resort also has two further venues where you can get married in this romantic setting.
When you are on the beach you can see the island’s capital of Port Louis as well as the mountains in the distance. This beautiful, romantic place is also fantastic to enjoy the impressive sunset.
The resort also has five restaurants which are all very near to the beach. While you are here it is worth taking advantage of the 5-course meals on offer and trying these in the different restaurants here.
