The wildest and most beautiful landscapes of the island are in the South of Mauritius- sandy beaches bordered by cliffs carved by waves, rocky shores, sugar cane fields as far as the eye can see, and mountainous terrains offering magnificent panoramas.
The region's most well known and popular beaches is Blue Bay, one of the finest bathing spots on the island surrounded by a semicircle of Filao trees. Situated on the southeast coast, not far from Mahébourg, Blue Bay offers a fine stretch of white sandy beach, and a deep, clear, light-blue bathing pool.
There is also scope for yachting and windsurfing.
