Mauritius is surrounded with reef, forming large lagoons for one to explore and enjoy. The scenery is stunning and is worth checking out, with or without wind, is a must on this island :) From the many activities available, I narrowed it down to a best 5 suitable for kitesurfers.
Mauritius is waiting for you to explore by stand-up-paddle (SUP), for those that are experienced on waves, you can take an SUP or surf board out on the reef to catch one of beautifully forming waves. Contact one of the kite centers on your desired kite spot for more information and if you need to book any lessons.
Sea Kayaking through Mangroves Trees on Ile d`Ambre
In my opinion Kayaking on turquoise water with a white sandy bottom through Mangrove trees is definitely one of my favorite alternatives in Mauritius. Half or full day trip with stunning scenery, observing this fascinating plant and discovering history of Ile d`Ambre island is organized by Yemaya Adventures.
Catamaran Trip to Il de Plat (Flat Island)
Île Plate, also known as Flat Island, is a small island located 11km of Mauritius. We went there on a catamaran cruise organized by Hotel 20°Sud . After landing on the island we went snorkeling inside the lagoons, walking through the whole island exploring its unique nature. On the end of the island we stopped in charming Governors House for a gourmet dinner and a cocktail on a beautiful private white sandy beach. Our unforgettable trip ended with sunset sailing back to Mauritius.
Fishing Trip at Trou d’Eau
A classic activity on Mauritius. Even if you are not into it, just the boat ride and seeing how it’s done by the locals makes it a worthwhile experience. If a fishing trip is planned at the right time with the moon and tide, a yield of up to 10 fish can be caught in one trip. Lagoons in the reef accommodate all kinds of sea life; Needlefish, GT, Captain and Barracuda among others. Out in the deep blue, one can catch big fish like Marlin and Dorado.
Mountain bike pristine landscapes, vast green mountains, sprawling sugar cane fields and small rustic villages. These are the lesser known parts of Mauritius that are amazing to see and experience by bike.
