Water activities

If your kids were wowed by the lions in Casela and the crocodiles in La Vanille Nature Park, wait until they see the dolphins or even whales! Book an early-morning boat trip to the west/south-west lagoon where you can watch these majestic sea mammals in their natural habitat.


Mauritius is an ideal family destination. It is most recommended to visit Mauritius in April and May, and in October and November. If you are traveling to Mauritius from June to September, you should stay on the island’s west coast as the weather is cooler and windier.
