Get your adrenalin pumping

If you’re looking for something a more fast-paced why not try pitting your wits against the ocean with some big game fishing or catamaran sailing.

Thrill-seekers will enjoy speeding across the ocean on water skis or wakeboards or letting the wind take them on windsurfs and kite surfs.

Scuba diving in the Indian Ocean

For those who haven’t scuba dived before, the adventure below the waves awaits you in reefs teeming with vibrant marine life and qualified instructors on hand to guide you.

In the waters off Constance Tsarabanjina you can discover reefs previously unexplored with a kaleidoscope of colourful marine life.

Even experienced divers can try something new with night dives available at Le Prince Maurice, Belle Mare Plage and Ephelia and heart-stopping shark dives at Moofushi and Halaveli.

In the hectic modern world we can be so busy rushing about for other people that we don’t have time to think about our own needs. Why not make this the summer that you kick-start a new program of wellbeing for you?

For sports fans why not book a session with one of our tennis coaches or take up golf and learn from the pros at our Marc Farry Golf Academy, based on our championship golf courses in Mauritius at Belle Mare Plage and Le Prince Maurice.

Let one of our personal trainers introduce you to one-on-one yoga sessions, or learning how to meditate and breathe to create a greater sense of inner calm.

Last year the trend was for staycations, but 2013 is seeing a revival in people seeking adventure beyond their home shores. Make it the year that tried something new.
