Balaclava Terre Rouge

Balaclava Terre Rouge is an exclusive luxury resort area on a picturesque bay on the northwest coast of Mauritius, around 15 minutes from Grand Baie and 38 miles from the airport. Nearby Turtle Bay was the first Marine National Park on Mauritius. You’ll find a gorgeous tropical garden location on the historic Balaclava estate right beside the park and the idyllic Balaclava Beach on Turtle Bay has typically perfect soft white sand and amazing turquoise water.

Balaclava Terre Rouge offers outstanding hotel restaurants, including Michelin-starred gourmet dining along with typically mixed Mauritian nightlife that includes cultural shows, theme nights, live music and low-key discos.

Balaclava Terre Rouge provides wonderful conditions for snorkelling and scuba diving with colourful coral reefs and a PADI approved dive school. Your holiday here could also include exciting big game fishing, excellent horse riding and mountain walks and watersports of every description. Or you could lazily explore the lush tranquil surroundings by bicycle. Worthwhile excursions include botanical gardens, nature parks, crocodile and bird parks, desert islands, tea and sugar plantations, fine colonial houses, glass bottom boat trips and a wide variety of relaxing cruises.
