Radisson Blu Azuri Resort & Spa, Mauritius

Water sports in Mauritius

For a family-friendly holiday that offers that something a little extra special, look no further than the Radisson Blu Azuri Resort & Spa, Mauritius. The resort not only offers a pool, crystal clear lagoon and its own secluded beach, it has an array of sporting activities for hours of entertainment both in and out of the water.

For fans of boating, why not take the family sailing or hire kayaks or pedalos and take to the clear azure ocean. If you want to know more about what lies beneath the surface and perhaps have the chance to see native species of sea life then pick up some snorkeling gear, jump in the water and start looking. As well as coral, you will come across several fish species. If you would rather stay dry, enjoy a trip on a glass-bottomed boat. The water is so clear you can see this underwater world without getting your feet wet. For more of a challenge, try your hand at windsurfing or stand-up paddle boarding.

Exploring the island

Mauritius is a paradise for water activities of all kinds including deep-sea fishing, kiting and diving. If you fancy some adventurous activities, book the children into the hotel’s kids club, which offers a full day of on-site activities, while you explore the island further. If you do not have your PADI diving license, what better place to take it than in the warm waters of the Indian Ocean? If you are an experienced diver, choose whether you want to go wreck or cave diving and discover this tropical underwater world.

With over 150 kilometers of coastline and clear turquoise waters, any trip to Mauritius is not complete without discovering the ocean and beaches. Whether you choose to spend your time on-site or exploring the rest of the island, there are plenty of sporty options to keep you entertained.
