Itinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Blue Bay Marine Park, Blue Bay Link Road, Mahebourg, Mauritius

Once you arrive at Blue Bay Beach, you will begin to understand where the name “Blue Bay” came from: the water is a multitude of shades of blue. From the beach, you’ll embark on a glass bottom boat trip to the famous Blue Bay Marine Park. The marine park is arguably the best location for snorkelling in Mauritius. With snorkelling gear provided, you’ll be able to discover the abundance of colourful tropical fish, including the trumpet fish, diverse coral formations and other marine creatures that call this park home.

Duration: 2 hours

Stop At: Gris Gris Beach, South Coast, Souillac, Mauritius

While most of Mauritius is surrounded by coral reefs, giving us the calm lagoon the island is famous for, the southern part of the island is where there is a break in the reef. At Gris Gris, you will be able to admire the rugged scenery of big, powerful waves crashing on the stunning cliffs. A few metres away, you will see La Roche qui Pleure, a natural rock formation that resembles a person crying when the waves hit it.

Duration: 1 hour

Stop At: La Vanille Nature Park, Riviere des Anguilles, Mauritius

Stroll through La Vanille Réserve des Mascareignes and its 3.5 hectares of lush greenery. Discover its beautiful palm and banana trees, giant bamboos, its impressive animals, including 2,000 Nile Crocodiles and 1,000 giant tortoises. You will also visit their insectarium which boasts one of the best private collections in the world with 23,000 species.

Duration: 3 hours

Stop At: La Plantation de Saint Aubin, St Aubin, Riviere des Anguilles, Mauritius
