Our Top Mauritius Experiences
During our visit to Mauritius we were blown away by some of the experiences this beautiful island has to offer. Amongst many experiences, Kitesurfing and the Dolphin and Whale Watching were two of our most favourite which we highly recommend you seek out.
Kitesurfing in Mauritius
There is a pretty good selection of kitesurfing ‘playgrounds’ in the South of the island from wide and shallow, flat lagoons and slightly wavy spots to some epic world class waves just a few hundred metres off the shore.
Kitesurfing season in Mauritius starts in April and easily goes all the way until the very end of November. This is the Mauritian winter with reliably strong and consistent South-east trade winds blowing at about 15-25 knots.
During our recent trip to Mauritius we discovered just how popular this water sport is, safe to say it is pretty epic in Mauritius…
Dolphin and Whale Watching
Most people dream of having the chance one day of having an encounter – for real – with dolphins and whales. The west coast offers the best opportunities for watching these fascinating sea creatures in their natural habitat.
When visiting Mauritius this is a must experience, where you really can get up close and even swim with the dolphins and whales if you are brave enough. This was one of our favourite adventures that we were lucky enough to enjoy during our visit. Leaving from the beach at Dinorobin at around 7.30am, we headed out to sea on a private 3 hour adventure. You can book a private tour for just you and your party, or join a group tour, however, these did look very crowded. We were absolutely blown away by amount of dolphins and whales we saw, huge pods. But the highlight had to be a family of Whales, mother, daughter and auntie with male swimming around. An amazing photo opportunity and a huge privilege to be able to see these magnificent creatures so close in their natural habitat.
Chamarel a mystery to many – see the seven coloured earths that are a unique geological phenomenon of volcanic earth that never erodes; sand dunes composed of red, brown, violet, green, purple, blue and yellow particles that spontaneously separate and settle in layers. It is said that if you take a handful of the seven colours and mix them all together, they will naturally separate back into their different groups.
Its museums, bustling and colourful market place and waterfront are a few of the attractions that make for a pleasant and distinctive journey of exploration. And don’t miss out on the cassava biscuit factory that has now been in activity for almost a century and a half.
