Blue Bay Travel Guide
Shopping Apart from the usual hotel shops and local stores, visitors to Blue Bay can go shopping in the nearby town of Mahebourg which has a wonderful traditional market. Local merchants sell fresh fish, fruit and vegetables, spices, clothes and arts and crafts.
Restaurants Blue Bay is a melting pot of cultures and cuisines and the restaurant scene has benefitted massively from this diversity. French, Indian, Chinese, and African restaurants can be found near the beach and the various hotels provide numerous fabulous dining opportunities.
Nightlife Many of the big hotels provide their own clubs and bars for evening entertainment, but Blue Bay's main nightlife venue is the C Beach Club which regularly features international DJs on Friday and Saturday nights between October and June. This nightclub, right on the beach, is a favourite with locals and tourists and often stays open until 4am in season.
Activities Watersports include wind surfing, kayaking, sailing, fishing, scuba diving, snorkelling, and glass-bottomed boat safaris. The Blue Bay Marine Park protects more than 50 different species of coral and the reef is in a good condition. Excursions to the Ile de Deux Cocos are popular. There are many land-based activities as well, including tennis, volleyball, hiking, and cycling. There are a number of quaint villages in the south with some cultural tourist attractions.
