Tamarin Bay, Mauritius

4.0
#11 of 26 in Beaches in Mauritius
Take a trip to Tamarin Bay, an attractive stretch of coastline with plenty to do on land and in the water. Enjoy a boat ride out into the bay to spot dolphins, and dip into the water to swim with the friendly creatures: the guides know the area well and take you straight to the animals. Popular with surfers, the area enjoys some of the best waves around. Otherwise, you can simply lie on the sandy beach, watching all the activity while enjoying a snack from the beachfront food stalls. Take the guesswork out of planning a Tamarin vacation by using our trip itinerary maker.

  • Yes there are lots of tourists! (we are) and critics have yet reserved activity knowingly. For my part I found not the behavior of the unsuitable skipper (well yes there are many!). The dolphins remain in a natural context altogether (probably fed anyway...) and it is not to make them "hugs" but to observe and eventually to jump off the boat to see swim and move away quickly as all wild animal. Lunch on the island to the holy water n is not essential especially if we consider the precarious health of places... The snokleling spots are without interest.

  • 7:30, the pitiful spectacle of 20 boats that track the dolphins. At each change of direction, full throttle on them. None has been respected, it doesn't help to go see "passionate" so-and-so "respectful so-and-so", when in all ways boats for groups and skippered by the fadas will do when it suits them. The boycott is the only solution. You really like dolphins? Let rest them in the Bay after a night of hunting, as they have done for thousands of years but are no longer able to do since the early 2000s. More you take boats "that leave early to arrive before others", and more you extend the time range during which they are disturbed. One day they won't come, you will have lost everything, and too.

  • Departure at 6: 00 in La Gaulette. Kissen picked us up in the parking lot of the supermarket then led us to the boat. The sea was rough, but we were able to pass the barrier reef and see dolphins with their young. They were swimming and jumping beside the boat. We swam with them because of the swell. Great family time. We then returned in the lagoon, and we lived a great second moment. Kissen knows perfectly the seabed and we did of snorkeling. The coral is beautiful and we have seen a multitude of fish. We then went to the rock giant clams and then on the clams for an aperitif and a barbecue island. The meal prepared by Kissen was excellent. A plate of tuna in sauce with rice and salad and finally a very good soaring banana. I recommend Kissen for this release because it is very serious, he knows the sea and takes no unnecessary risks. He practice fair prices and it is very friendly. We loved this time of sharing. A big thank you to sin and his team. Nathalie, Xavier and Enzo
