Under the atmosphere of a postcard, Mauritius enchants visitors with its fine sandy beaches, coconut palms and azure waters. This jewel of the Indian Ocean, a few kilometres from the African coast, is a luxury destination where you can spend your holidays. To make the experience even more memorable, we suggest you rent an upscale villa, feet in the water. At any time of the day, you can tread the fine sands of the most beautiful beaches of Mauritius or dive into the clear blue waters of the ocean. To relax or organise activities with the family, Mauritius is undoubtedly the solution for a paradisiacal holiday.
Though the fine sands of Mauritius are exceptional, it is underwater that all the beauty of the island is revealed. With its turquoise lagoons and coral reefs, Mauritius is a real gem for all watersports enthusiasts. With family or friends, come explore the fantastic aquatic life of Mauritius in the middle of a seabed that radiates beauty.
No matter what season you decide to visit Mauritius, scuba diving remains the flagship activity of this African pearl. The climate is mild throughout the year, although the austral summer, between October and March, remains the ideal period for snorkelling. Indeed, it is during this season that the winds are the weakest, which means optimum conditions for viewing the aquatic life of Mauritius. In all corners of Mauritius, you will find dive sites as well as clubs offering courses for both beginners and advanced divers. In the East, you will dive in the wild and preserved Mauritius. The West, much less windy, enjoys a rich and varied marine fauna. Finally, in the North, the small neighbouring islands of Mauritius such as Coin de Mire, Flat Island or the islet of Gabriel, are privileged spots to practice scuba diving.
Of course, as Mauritius is rather exposed to the wind, the country is a surfer's paradise. The southwest of the island, and especially the Tamarin region, are the favourite areas for winter sports fans. Among them, find the famous spot "One Eye" that continues to seduce visitors who come to surf Mauritius. The more experienced can visit Le Morne, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Many schools are present for the island to teach you the basics of surfing. Thus, you will be able to face the impressive waves of Mauritius while the sea breeze gently caresses your face.
In addition, holidays in Mauritius would not be complete without having practiced kitesurfing. Over the years, kitesurfing has become the national sport of Mauritius. Many competitions are also regularly organised. Accessible to all, kitesurfing consists of moving on the water on a board while being towed by a kite. With its trade winds, its turquoise lagoon and its sunny climate all year long, Mauritius will delight all kitesurf enthusiasts. There are several areas for kitesurfing in Mauritius. Among them, we recommend the southwest of the island, including the areas of Manawa and One Eye, reserved however for the most experienced. Cap Malheureux and Trou aux Biches will also thrill the most knowledgeable kitesurfers. Beginners will be able to learn kitesurfing in Belle Mare, Palmar or Poste Lafayette.
Stand-up paddle (SUP)
You will understand, in Mauritius you can discover the sea life whilst staying in shape during your holidays. For some adrenaline rushes, try stand-up paddle boarding, also called SUP. This sport of rowing on a large paddle board is booming on the island - and for good reason! Accessible to all, including children, the stand-up paddle offers sublime and unobstructed views of the natural areas of Mauritius while advancing, at your own pace, on the turquoise waters of the lagoon.
Big game fishing
Finally, if you are not too sporty, you still have the opportunity to go fishing. A very popular activity on Mauritius, big game fishing will allow you to discover the huge fish without going underwater. Armed with patience, you may be able to catch some impressive beasts such as blue marlin, tuna or swordfish. The December to February period is the ideal season to practice this nautical activity and try to catch the biggest marine predators.
