Tamarin beach tour overview

Welcome to Tamarin Beach, a charming village nestled along the scenic western coast of Mauritius. With its salt pans, renowned surfing spots, and vibrant nightlife, Tamarin Beach offers an irresistible blend of coastal beauty and leisure activities.

Picture this: lush trees, majestic mountains, and a tranquil atmosphere enveloping a quaint fishing village. That’s Tamarin for you—a destination that effortlessly captivates visitors with its natural charm and harmonious ambiance. Whether you’re seeking seaside serenity or thrilling adventures, Tamarin has it all.

Let’s delve into the rich history of Tamarin. What began as a humble fishing village has blossomed into a thriving residential area and sought-after holiday destination. In recent years, Tamarin has undergone significant development, boasting a new leisure and commercial hub.

Once known as Santosha Bay, this area has long been a haven for surfers, and drawing enthusiasts from near and far. Interestingly, locals were initially hesitant to name the beach, preferring to keep its surfable secrets hidden. However, as the waves shifted and currents changed, surfers gravitated towards Le Morne, leaving Tamarin to evolve into a beloved coastal gem.

Located in the picturesque district of Black River, Tamarin Beach is conveniently situated just an hour’s drive from the international airport and a short distance from the bustling capital, Port Louis. The village enjoys excellent connectivity, with a reliable bus network linking it to key destinations across the island.

Now, let’s talk climate. If you’re a fan of perpetual sunshine and balmy temperatures, you’re in luck. Tamarin Beach basks in a tropical climate year-round, with July to September offering slightly cooler weather and January to February bringing warmer days. With temperatures ranging from a comfortable 19°C to a balmy 30°C, every season is beach weather in Tamarin.

Now, onto the fun stuff—activities! Tamarin Beach is a haven for water sports enthusiasts, particularly surfers and bodyboarders who flock to its legendary waves. But the excitement doesn’t stop there. From paddleboarding and kitesurfing to snorkeling and scuba diving, there’s no shortage of aquatic adventures to be had.

For those with a passion for angling, high-sea fishing promises a thrilling experience, while catamaran cruises offer a leisurely way to explore the coastal splendor. Keep your eyes peeled for Mauritius dolphins and whales, as Tamarin Bay is a popular spot for whale watching and even swimming with these magnificent creatures.

Another popular activity on the bay is kayaking.

Kayak 2-Hour Activity with Mauritius Dolphins

Get ready for an extraordinary morning expedition with our company! We invite you to embark on a unique journey to observe dolphins in their natural habitat at Tamarin Beach. This serene morning setting provides the perfect opportunity to catch sight of two magnificent marine mammals: the spinner dolphin and the bottlenose Mauritius dolphins. These incredible creatures often seek refuge in the bay during the night for mating and feeding.

Join your knowledgeable guide as you hop onto kayaks and set off on a responsible and respectful adventure to encounter Mauritius’ dolphins. This 2-hour excursion is suitable for everyone, even if you’ve never kayaked before. 

While we strive to provide you with the best dolphin-viewing experience, it’s important to keep in mind that we cannot guarantee their presence. Sometimes the Mauritius dolphins may be out of reach along the coast. In such cases, we’ll offer an alternative route along the Tamarind River, where you can still enjoy the local wildlife and scenic views.
