Sea with shades of turquoise in Mauritius

When you reach this area, the first thing that strikes then spellbinds you is the sea with its different shades of turquoise: infinite, sparkling, majestic.

This unreal postcard view, real in Mauritius, is home to many nautical and marine activities for all sea lovers: game fishing for big sea fishing fans, water skiing, speedboat rides, kayaking or stand-up paddle form part of the wide range of activities which are proposed.

To discover the rich seabed, you can choose from scuba diving in one of many sites, snorkelling, diving in a submarine or semi-submersible or underwater walk.

A catamaran yacht cruise in the direction of the islets of the North, like the imposing "Gunner’s Quoin" which is eight kilometres away from the coast and, further up, "Flat Island" and "Gabriel Island" also form part of islets to discover.

Schedule: picnic, sunbathing on white sand beaches, swimming in the clear waters and ‘Robinson Crusoeing’ in a heavenly and unique decor.

Besides water and marine activities, other activities such as tennis, horseback riding and many discovery tours are available to all. Amateurs and professionals will be overwhelmed by the many world class golf courses scattered across the island. The stunning beauty of Mauritius can also be admired from above by a helicopter or seaplane flight or, for the brave hearts, a parachute jump will pump up more adrenaline!
