Know More about this tour

Ile aux Aigrettes Nature Reserve
Start your adventureat Pointe Jrome, where you will embark on a small boat that will take you across the turquoise waters to Ile aux Aigrettes: a small coralisland situated off of the southeast coastof Mauritius. The island has been a nature reserve since 1965, andis home to unique flora and fauna, that was once considered on the verge of extinction. After arrival on the island, you will meet one of the trained and knowledgeable rangers who will accompany you on a guided 1.5 to 2 hour hike around the island. As a result of the successful conservation efforts by scientists on the island, you will have the opportunity to view unique species such as the Mauritian Fody, Pink Pigeon, giant Aldabra Tortoise, and the Ornate Day Gecko in a safe and protected environment. You will also discover the original trees and vegetation that, before the arrival of man, covered Mauritius and its surrounding islands. While the hike is not strenuous, remember to bring some good walking shoes!

Blue Bay Beach
Next on the list is Blue Bay Beach:one of the most beautiful beaches inMauritius. Aptly named Blue Bay, this beach stuns visitors and locals alike with its various shades of blue. You will be able to spend some time strolling along the white sandy beach, taking a dip in the lagoon, and trying out some of the delicious street food from the various beach vendors.

Historical Village of Mahbourg
Once abusy port used by the French, the village of Mahbourg is now a quiet, laid-back coastal village, full of history and charm. During your drive through the village, you will discover the old buildings and streets, reminiscent of the colonial era.

  • Ile aux Aigrettes Nature Reserve is a wonderful place to visit. I totally recommend it.

    But the Tour... don't pay for it! The taxi driver was a nice person, but he seemed confused. When we got at Pointe Jerome to get the boat, nothing was reserved and we had to wait more to go to the island. We decided to end the tour when we return from Ile aux Aigrettes and return to the hotel. It was not worth it at all!!!

  • Don't bother.Just book the entry to Ile aux aigrettes on line and go to Blue Bay independently with your own driver which is just up the road from the boat to the island. The museum is around the corner as well.
    Cheaper and easier than this disorganised tour.
