Tucked away in the relatively undeveloped southeastern corner of Mauritius, a Blue Bay vacation provides guests with a quiet spot to relax that's still within close distance to the country's airport.
On the 2nd (Tue), enjoy the sand and surf at La Cambuse Beach, race across the water with a speed boat tour, and then step off the mainland to explore Ile aux Aigrettes Nature Reserve. On the 3rd (Wed), you'll have a packed day of sightseeing: relax and rejuvenate at some of the best spas and then enjoy the sand and surf at Ile aux Cerfs.
