Diving in Mauritius

Mauritius is a unique place in the world, as this is a volcanic island that is surrounded by coral reefs almost entirely. White, sandy beaches cover much of its 177 kilometers (110 miles) coastline. You can choose over 100 dive sites to explore all of them filled with tropical fish species. Make sure you visit from November to May, when you will find warm water and the best diving conditions.
