Water Wonders

Life in Mauritius spins around the inviting warm waters of the Indian Ocean. Visitors can take advantage of this water paradise by trying out a variety of water sports and activities around the island.

There are water sports galore to choose from: pedaloes, kayaks, water skis, sea karting, surfing, windsurfing, stand up paddleboarding, glass bottom boats, catamaran cruises, dolphin watching and big game-fishing… For the more adventurous among you, there are an underwater walk, submarine trips and parasailing.

Mauritius is a well-known diving destination, and snorkelling can be done in most lagoons, where you’ll be amazed at the sea life you can see not far from the shore. In Blue Bay, a nature reserve, you can take a glass bottom boat into the reserve and then snorkel in the lagoon – an experience that you will remember forever!

If kitesurfing is more your game, head for the windiest spots in the South and East all year round, and in the North at some periods of the year. Hang onto your hat!
