What to expect

South West Mauritius tour overview

Dolphin watching in Tamarin Bay, the south west Mauritius excursion offers a captivating experience amidst breathtaking coastal scenery. Located on the west coast of the island, Tamarin Bay is renowned for its resident pods of Indo-Pacific bottlenose Mauritius dolphins. Visitors can embark on boat tours departing from the bay, led by knowledgeable guides who navigate the waters to locate these magnificent creatures. The dolphins are often spotted swimming gracefully in the crystal-clear waters, offering a mesmerizing sight as they leap and play in their natural habitat.

Aside from Mauritius dolphins sightings, this south west Mauritius provides opportunities for snorkeling in the vibrant coral reefs that fringe the bay, allowing visitors to explore the colorful marine life beneath the surface. The calm and tranquil waters of Tamarin Bay create an ideal environment for dolphin watching, ensuring a serene and memorable experience for all who venture there. Whether observing these majestic mammals from the boat or swimming alongside them, dolphin watching in Tamarin Bay promises an unforgettable encounter with nature’s beauty.

The next tourist spot is the seven colored earth in Mauritius. It’s this crazy natural wonder that’s a real head-turner for tourists. Picture this: a small patch of dunes boasting seven distinct colors – red, brown, violet, green, blue, purple, and yellow. How did it happen, you ask? Well, it’s all thanks to ancient volcanic activity and some geological magic over time.

Here’s the kicker: despite heavy rains and tough weather, these colors just don’t fade. And get this, if you mix them up, they’ll settle back into their separate layers, like magic! Plus, the way the sunlight hits them at sunrise? Breathtaking.

Since the 1960s, this colorful marvel has been a hot spot for tourists. You can’t climb on the dunes anymore, but there are observation spots to take in the view. And hey, don’t forget to check out the souvenir shops and say hello to the giant tortoises while you’re there.
