Welcome to Blue Bay

Blue Bay

Often called one of the best beaches in the world, the white sand of Blue Bay contrasts with its brilliant turquoise water. Blue Bay (also called Bel Ombre) is the most popular beach in Mauritius, and can get crowded on weekends when the locals from Mahebourg come in droves though weekdays are pleasantly quiet. Blue Bay is renowned for its colourful coral reefs, and snorkelling and scuba diving are popular activities. Non-swimmers can enjoy the view from a glass-bottomed boat on the way to the Islets of Mauritius, also known as the Ile de Deux Cocos. Land-based activities include tennis and volleyball; and Blue Bay has some excellent restaurants, though not known for its nightlife.
