Snorkeling is an incredible experience since so many fish can be seen close to the beach without even having to go by boat to the reef. Full shoe fins should be worn.


Snorkeling is excellent with over-the-side boat trips running from most major hotels and from Grand Baie beach. The best swimming beaches are all at the northern end of the island.

Equipment, when it's not free, can be hired. If you want your own, try the Quay Store at 3 Kennedy Street, (P0 Box 436), Port Louis, (Tel: 212 1043) or Aquasport Ltd., 2 d'Entre Casteaux Street, Port Louis, (Tel: 208 9185.) Fishing and diving equipment is also available.
