Named after the extraordinary blues of its waters, Blue Bay boasts the largest coral reef on Mauritius, which is home to 50 different types of coral alone. The reef is protected by Blue Bay Marine Park, probably best explored with a mask and snorkel in hand, although regular glass-bottomed boats also tour it.

Located on the island’s southeast coast, Blue Bay’s white coral sands can be found beyond its filao trees. The prevailing conditions make it a good option for windsurfers and kite surfers, while visitors will also find the chance to take out a kayak or pedal boat too. When it comes to refreshment, there are few facilities beyond the street hawker stalls around the car park.
