Notes on the Geography of Mauritius: Mauritius 3: Tourism: Photo 11

world pictures Mauritius: Mauritius 3: Tourism

We're less than three miles south of Mahébourg, and we're also directly under the flight path of aircraft using the island's one runway, which is about half a mile inland. It's dramatic, with Emirates A380s coming and going. For the moment, things are quiet here at Blue Bay, which is where one of the island's first hotels catering to tourists opened in 1964. Then it was called the Beachcomber; now, expanded, it's the Shandrani. It's over there, at the far end of the beach.
