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.
