Water lilies and giant turtles, heavenly beaches and wildlands… One thing is for sure, Mauritius doesn’t just make the adults dream! A few years ago, when you thought of Mauritius, you imagined yourself as a couple, sipping a cane sugar cocktail along the beach. But Mauritius is an ideal destination for families and teenagers, far exceeding the stereotypes of the “perfect honeymoon”. Here are the ideal activities when you visit Mauritius with teenagers:
You can scuba dive all year round in Mauritius thanks to its 350 km of coastline surrounded by a coral reef that protects the transparent waters of its lagoon. The water temperature is pleasant, you can dive in shorty even in winter. It is, therefore, a very easy destination and particularly suitable for family diving.
Behind the coral reef, you will discover underwater canyons where giant morays and stone fishes hide as well as triggerfish that delight divers. There are also some beautiful wrecks including the Stella Maru, easily accessible even for beginners.
Let go of the adventurer inside you! Get out of everyday life and embark on an adventure in one of the most beautiful corners of the island. Discover the unique fauna and flora while enjoying a quad ride. You will have spectacular views of waterfalls, rivers, and forests. More than just a simple quad/buggy ride, it is an expedition to discover nature and reveal its riches.
You don’t need to know how to swim to discover the wonderful underwater world of Mauritius. At a depth of more than 35 meters, observe the aquatic ballet of fish around the coral reefs and discover the wreck of the “Star Hope” (58 m long). Different formulas are at your disposal such as the complete rental of the submarine for an exclusive visit for you and your friends or family. You can even offer yourself lunch at 40 meters underwater.
