Mahebourg is a larger town in Mauritius and Blue Bay Beach is close. Because of this, Blue Bay Beach can get kind of crowded on weekends. But during the week, you may have this long beauty all to yourself – well, almost.
To get the best shots, make sure your camera is set to “beach” or “sun” or “outdoors”. Best times are mid morning and late afternoon. You can sneak in a great shot at other times, as well. Just make sure you don’t position yourself where you’ll get too much glare.
Next, compose your shot with plenty of contrast. For beach shots here, it’s easy. Get about half sand and half sky. And make sure you get some great sky – with few clouds. The blues are amazing here (and at other beaches as well).
Blue Bay Beach is located on the southeast side of the main island and is very easily accessible. When in Mahebourg, just ask the directions to Blue Bay… and take the camera.
- Sand – medium powder, all coral based.
- Facilities – full.
- Shade – trees line the coast here. Nice.
- Sports – snorkeling, diving, and a few others – ask at hotels – their venue changes with seasons.
- Notes – will get crowded on weekends.
