Snorkelling in Mauritius

Snorkelling from the beach at your hotel is a wonderful way of getting some exercise and experiencing the colours and aquatic life of Mauritius.
Most of the hotels that we recommend on this lush, tropical island will provide you with the necessary gear (fins, goggles and snorkels) and let you explore the waters around you.  It’s a magical way for families or adults to spend a few hours.  Just remember to wear a T-shirt or put lots of sun cream on your back first.

The sea is warm (generally around 37c) and is therefore ideally suited for snorkelling.

If you wish to go a little deeper and visit some underwater wrecks or coral reefs, there’s plenty of reasonably good scuba diving sites around the island to explore too.
