About Balaclava in Mauritius (2020)

Balaclava is a village in the western part of Mauritius, known for its spectacular beach along with the sparkling blue of the Indian Ocean. The Balaclava Beach in Mauritius is known for its pristine beauty and a plethora of watersports activities. Also known as Victoria Beach or Oberoi Beach after the two most luxurious hotels located here, the public beach facing the Balaclava Bay, Mauritius is an extremely pretty sight here. The water here is crystal clear and a striking turquoise blue, with the seabed nearer to the shore. The beach itself is of powdery white sand, which is toasted by the sun all day, thus making Balaclava, Mauritius a perfect location for sunbathing and swimming.

Balaclava Beach, Mauritius also has a stunning collection of coral reefs within a couple of hundred meters from the shore, which can be seen and explored by scuba diving and snorkeling. But other than the few luxury hotels, you will not find many establishments here. One of the best locations to snorkel is the Turtle Bay Marine Park Balaclava Mauritius near Maritim Hotel. The marine environment here is extremely rich in flora and fauna and the diving experience you will have is fantastic.

Near the Maritim Resort and Spa is also a sight worth beholding – the Balaclava Fort, Mauritius. Called the Balaclava ruins, this site is a French fort constructed a few meters away from the Turtle Bay area in the 18th century. The location has been restored and used as an estate for a chain of hotels, but it is definitely worth a visit from the outside, simply because of its enriching past.

    Manoj's 5 days trip to Mauritius

    The overall experience was OK, not so great. Room preparation for the honeymoon was not as expected completely below par. Further, my travel bookings were complete as per the local vendor linked completely differently from the travel agent mentioned in the itinerary. He took us for his designated location for water sports, shopping, etc. and not any place if we want to. Timing for different locations was very bad, beaches did not have time for more than 1 hour however it was the main thing in our itinerary.

    Anurag's 6 days trip to Mauritius

    Overall experience of the trip was quite good, amidst the fear of corona everywhere, We were still able to enjoy our trip in Mauritius as it is the least affected country. This was our honeymoon trip and so we were very excited. With honeymoon-couples all over the trip, the stay at Hotel Intercontinental was phenomenal. With four different restaurants, serving various categories of food like Asian, Indian, Mediterranian etc. It was a good experience. The travel guides serving and guiding us while travelling within Mauritius (On SIT basis) were quite polite and helpful. We were welcomed at the hotel and was provided with an ocean facing room and a sparkling wine(Local made) to add glitters to the experience. Though, With the price, I paid for this trip, I would rate the overall experience of the booking, co-ordination and stay as 3.8/5. The reason of my rating is due to the below factors: Three major issues, I want to highlight are 1. Though, we were told by our travel partner(Travel-Triangle/aaojao.com) that we'll be given a welcome Polo-Tshirts but the same was NOT provided as there were no stock of the same in the hotel. 2. Room Decoration : Hotel room was not at all decorated as expected. Only few rose petals were put on the bed with two towels folded in the ♥ form. 3. Drinking Water: One of the most essentials, while travelling is the drinking water. At the hotel, it became a massive surprise for us, when we were told to buy expensive water bottles while at lunch/Dinner. Also, Complimentary water bottles were'nt provided on time in our rooms for first two days later they started providing two times a day and on-time. Please Note: At Intercontinental, as per the policy of the hotel, It should provide 2-3 water bottle - two times a day. I may recommend others for this trip provided, all get what is promised and No last-minute surprises for water atleast!! The Under water sea walk and the sea beach at hotel!!

    Radhika's 6 days trip to Mauritius

    Hotel was not as per expected standards. Property was okay, rooms were really small. Service and food quality was really poor and would not recommend anyone to opt for Anelia. Better options were found to be available at comparable prices later.

    It was a great trip to Mauritius, enjoyed the activities and site seeing. Thanks for providing great services. Hotel and Transport were very good and friendly. It was a great experience with AirnWings Team. One suggestion-more beaches can be added to travel itinerary than commercial complexes.......as Mauritius is famous for crystal clear beaches.

    Turtle Bay is an ideal place for diving and snorkeling. It has a marine park, which is enriched in marine creatures and coral reefs – perfect for a dive.

    There are no permanent small stalls at the beach. During high seasons, there are temporary ones for quick finger foods, beers, sodas, and ice cream.

    Balaclava Beach has two luxury hotels right next to it – Oberoi Mauritius and Le Victoria. They have their own private beaches, which is right adjacent to the public beach.
