Tamarin Bay is situated in Tamarin, next to Black River, on the west coast of Mauritius. Early in the mornings, you can meet joggers and dog walkers and in the afternoons people like to come for a relaxed walk along the sea. On weekends, the beach is fairly empty until about noon, when it starts to fill up. Families love to come enjoy the afternoon there. It is a fun beach too, as waves comes straight to the beach. So don’t forget to bring boards along. It has two nice surfing spots. ‘Dal’ on its left and ‘Black stone’ on the right. Dolphins are often found close to Tamarin Bay and various boat companies offer trips to watch and swim with them in the mornings.
As it is at the mouth of La Rivière du Rempart, during the rainy season, Tamarin Bay is separated in two parts by the river. La Passe created by this river is not difficult to cross if you are not scared to get a bit wet. At low tide it can go from ankle high to hip high, and at high tide it goes from knee high to deeper where you would have to swim through it to reach the other side. In winter, it is often all dried out.
On its left side, towered by “La Tourelle” mountain, there is some protection from the sun from the Casuarina trees. The waves are not as strong near the beach and the water not too deep. On its right side, the beach is wider, the sea deeper, and waves are more fun, however there isn’t much protection from the sun.
As it is on the west coast, Tamarin Bay offers the most glorious sunsets. Ideal for sun-downers on a warm day!
