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.
Kick off your visit on the 28th (Sun): tour the pleasant surroundings at Heritage Nature Reserve, then enjoy the sand and surf at Gris Gris Beach, and then tour the pleasant surroundings at Ile aux Aigrettes Nature Reserve. Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the next day: examine the collection at Bois Cheri Tea Factory and Tea Museum and then head off the coast to Ile aux Cerfs.

An unusual commodity in the lesser-touristed western part of Mauritius, the developed seaside village Flic En Flac boasts a vast white sandy beach that generates a large amount of tourism.
Visit Flic en Flac Beach and Tamarin Bay for some beach relaxation. Step out of the city life by going to Swim with Dolphins and Black River Gorges National Park. Explore Flic En Flac's surroundings by going to La Vallee des Couleurs (in Chamouny), Le Morne (Dolphin & Whale Watching & Le Morne Brabant) and Chamarel (Seven Colored Earths, Ebony Forest Reserve, & more). There's much more to do: identify plant and animal life at Wildlife Areas, take in the dramatic scenery at Chamarel Waterfall, get in on the family fun at Casela World of Adventures, and contemplate the geological forces at Trou aux Cerfs.
