Tamarin Bay, Mauritius

#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 Mauritius vacation by using our trip itinerary maker.

  • We were two couples and had a magical time. Yes, wake up early, but it's worth it. We had exchanges with Caro only by message but very reactive and always very accurate. The excursion was done with Kelvin, his companion, who is really top. Friendly and very pedagogical he will answer all your questions about dolphins and even more. Animal welfare is a priority for him which has strengthened our choice. Having arrived first we left once all the others arrived (it's early summer and too many people for my liking). Really do not hesitate to book at Caro you will not be disappointed and will not be with 50 million tourists who can scream or other :) Really ❤ Thanks Caro - Kelvin

  • That was awesome! Get up very early for a departure from The Morne at 5:15 a.m. with a taxi booked by Caro des Islands for the occasion. Arrived at the big black river at 5:50, and hop in the boat from 6am towards the bay in search of the Dolphins. Sunrise and dolphin bench... magic. Kelvin accompanied us well, reassured and guided us in launching and discovering this incredible feeling of swimming with dolphins. Extra! I highly recommend it! We were only 4 on the boat, so genial to allow the launch with the dolphins. The start super early, allows to see the dolphins before the groups arrive. About an hour with the dolphins! Then we went on a snorkeling spot! Giant Aquarium! 8.30am we were back at the port. Thank you Caro of the islands for this unforgettable experience!
