Sailing off Mauritius

One cannot think of Mauritius without evoking images of a tropical island paradise with white beaches, palm trees, exquisite sunsets and clean clear waters lining its shores. These images would not be far from the truth and it is certainly some of the sights you can expect to see sailing along this beautiful island oasis off the southeast coast of the African continent.Mauritius might simply be one of the best luxury sailing destination in the world.Hop aboard your superyacht of private sailing yacht to explore the island’s spectacular shoreline.

Situated in the warm waters of the Indian Ocean, Mauritius has mostly hot and sunny weather and relatively calm waters all year round, which makes it an idyllic haven for sailors. By far the most popular method of sailing is by a day-chartered luxury yacht, which makes for a gloriously peaceful day at sea with gentle sea breezes kissing your face.

The main island of Mauritius is surrounded by hundreds of small islands, some of these uninhabited; some are nature reserves, and others boast withsmall luxury hotels and golf courses. However, some of these islands are just there for your enjoyment as these provide perfect diving and snorkeling facilities and pristine beaches.

Another favorite vessel to explore the coastal regions of Mauritius is by luxury catamaran, where this option is far livelier than drifting upon a yacht. The usual day trip on a catamaran includes taking from ten to thirty people (depending on the size) into the turquoise ocean with lunch and drinks included. By the looks of the people dancing on the decks on the way back, we can only assume that the combination of the local rum used to make the cocktails and the potent sunshine leads to a midday party.

Mauritius is more than just a sailor’s paradise. For any water lover, this is an absolute must. With the array of water sports on offer, spending a day off your sailing vessel is just as enjoyable. Indulge in anything from tanning to swimming, from surfing to snorkeling and everything in between. Mauritius exudes luxury living at its finest.

Although the main attraction of Mauritius is its sea and beaches, one cannot forget the treasures the inner country has to offer. Here you can enjoy excellent Creole cuisine, sample a bit of the island nightlife or explore the beautiful mainland on foot or on horse back, all while drinking in the friendly and relaxed atmosphere of Mauritius.
