Turtle Bay Marine Park in Balaclava (North West)

The first to be proclaimed a national marine park, Turtle Bay is situated on the North West coast of Mauritius, near Maritim Hotel.

Sheltered from the South East trade winds, this part of the island is ideal for snorkelling and diving, given its very rich marine environment.

Endless varieties of corals, fishes, predators and turtles live in harmony in this underwater paradise.

Tip: the schooner Isla Mauritia departing from Grand Baie has a daily excursion to the Turtle Bay. It is a full day trip with lunch and drinks on board. Loads of fun.
