Blue Bay Marine Park

Blue BayIle des Deux Cocos

Found South East of Mauritius, the Blue Bay marine park is framed on one side by Le Shandrani Hotel, Blue Lagoon Hotel and the runway of our international airport Sir Seewoosagur Ramgoolam Airport.

And sitting comfortably on top of the marine park is 'Ile des Deux Cocos', an islet within the lagoon, of 4.22 hectares.

An important and very unique network of coral reefs protect this part of the island from the oceanic waves.

The oldest corals are found between 'Ile aux Deux Cocos' (where there is a hotel project at Naiade Resorts !!) and the coastline at a depth of 5.5 metres. And more than 50 different species of corals have been identified, out of which more than 80% are alive.

The Blue Bay marine park has been proclaimed in 1997 to slow down the constant degradation of the marine environment, a result of urbanisation and tourism development in the area.

Tip: the Coast Guard at the Marine Park is unfortunately too relaxed and the number of boats at the park will sooner or later damage the corals. Entrance is free, though you have to pay for the snorkeling boat ride.
