The warm waters surrounding the island of Mauritius make it an ideal year-round diving destination.
Here’s a look at some of the top dive sites on the East and North West coasts of the island.
Belle Mare Plage
The dive school at Constance Belle Mare Plage caters for beginners right through to qualified divers.
Small numbers go out on the boat to the reef that’s a short distance off Belle Mare Plage, or the lagoon off Constance Le Prince Maurice.
Here, you can expect to see beautiful corals and large shoals of colourful fish. You may get a chance to see the rare stone fish, dolphins, guitar shark and turtles, as well as whales further out to sea during the winter months.
In addition to the incredible underwater creatures you’ll see, the service you get both diving and on board the boat is everything you’d expect from a 5* luxury hotel.
Ile Aux Cerfs
The tiny island of Ile Aux Cerfs is renowned for its sandy beaches and calm waters. The coral reef is beautiful and brimming with marine life.
You can arrange diving trips to the island either from your hotel, or once you arrive at Ile Aux Cerfs.
Grand Baie and Trou aux Biches
If you’ve already explored the East coast, and want to see more of the underwater world of Mauritius, head to the North West coast, where you’ll find some great dive sites including Whale Roc, Lost City, The Tube and Waterlilly.
Expect to see huge numbers of fish, corals, rays and sharks. There’s a wreck of a Japanese fishing boat at Stella Maru, just in front of the reef. Here, an abundance of sea life have made this their home over the last 15 years.
