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.

Mauritius, an island of incomparable beauty, is home to some of the world’s most breathtaking coral reefs and marine life ever to be seen. This island, located in the Indian Ocean, is filled with hundreds of bright-coloured fish, making the underwater world of Mauritius a real natural wonder. When you dive in Mauritius, you enter a world of underwater wonders, where you can explore beautiful coral reefs, multi-colored marine life, old shipwrecks that date back to the 18th and 19th centuries, as well as some ships sunk more recently which create beautiful artificial reefs. The crystal-clear water, the abundance of fish life and colorful reefs make up magnificent sights.
