Activities

The most popular activity is a boat excursion to the offshore islands (Île aux Aigrettes, Île de la Passe, Île aux Vacoas and Île au Phare) or the über-popular Île aux Cerfs further north. Most trips involve snorkelling and include lunch. Scores of boatswains park along the shores of Mahébourg and Blue Bay awaiting customers; they all offer similar experiences.
