Mauritius is surrounded by coral reefs almost around the island. The reefs are close enough to the beach, making the lagoon safe for swimming. Our free snorkelling trip takes you to the Merville patches which is only 4 minutes by boat from our beach. Snorkelling is only at a maximum of 3 metres deep, generally at 1.5 metres.

Water temperatures are pleasant at 26-30 degrees celsius in summer (October to April) and 19-22 degrees celsius in winter (May to September).

Free snorkelling sessions are offered twice a week, on Tuesdays and Fridays. Three sessions are programmed as from 10am and a maximum of 9 persons is allowed on board the glass bottom boat (per trip). Equipment - mask, tube and fins - are available free on board the glass bottom boat.

Sign up at reception is compulsory. Due to its popularity, snorkelling sessions are done on a first come first serve basis.

 

Large fan corals, flat corals and soft corals add to the exquisite beauty of marine life. On a sunny day, when visibility in water is good, the underwater world illuminates into a kaleidoscope of bright colours, with friendly Sergant Major fish and clown fishes weaving in and out of colourful anemone plants.
