Activity description

Spend a dream day discovering Ile aux Aigrettes, Blue Bay, La Vanille Nature Park and the Gris Gris beach in Mauritius!

The south-east of Mauritius is famous for its large lagoon sheltering the Ile aux Aigrettes, an island declared a nature reserve in 1965 because of its unique fauna and flora that it is necessary to protect. Located between Mahébourg and Blue Bay, your visit to Ile aux Aigrettes will allow you to discover local plants and animals such as the pink pigeon, the giant Aldabra tortoise, or the ornate Mauritian day gecko, and thus make you aware of environmental protection.

After your morning on the Ile aux Aigrettes, you will have the pleasure to enjoy at your own pace the rest of your excursion in the south-east of Mauritius: free time to have lunch and relax on the beach of Blue Bay, visit of La Vanille Nature Park to admire a great number of reptiles and insects, and finally passage to the Gris Gris beach to see the Weeping Rock.

This tour will be for you the moment to not only discover the most important places on Mauritius, but also to enjoy a personalized tour according to your desires to spend an incredible day!
