You will embark on a small boat at Pointe Jérome, which will take you across the turquoise waters to Ile aux Aigrettes, a small coralline limestone island situated in the South East of Mauritius. Since 1965, Ile aux Aigrettes has been declared a nature reserve, and it arguably the best place to see flora and fauna endemic to Mauritius.

Upon arrival, you will meet one of the trained guides who will accompany you on an easy hike around the island (1.5h to 2h in length). You will have the opportunity to view unique species such as the Mauritian Fody, Pink Pigeon, giant Aldabra Tortoise, and the Ornate Day Gecko in a safe and protected environment. You will also discover the original trees and vegetation that, before the arrival of man, covered Mauritius and its surrounding islands.

After exploring Ile aux Aigrettes, you will visit Blue Bay for a few hours of relaxation. Blue Bay is known to be one of the most beautiful beaches in Mauritius, and has some of the most blue water of any beach on the island. 

Just a few minutes from Blue Bay lies the village of Mahébourg. Now a quiet, laid-back coastal village, Mahébourg is full of history and charm. During your drive through the village, you will discover the old buildings and streets, reminiscent of the colonial era. In Mahébourg, you have the chance to visit the National History Naval Museum and discover the fascinating history of Mauritius through a collection of curated artifacts, historical documents. Please note that the museum may be closed on Sundays and Public Holidays.
