So, looking for a new hidden location to get off the radar with friends? Here's this piece of paradise on earth.

1. Exotic diving

The world beneath the sea is truly magical. Some of the best dive spots include Trou aux Biches, Le Morne, Flic en Flac, and Mahebourg, where you’ll see everything from underwater caves to wrecks, coral gardens, and plenty of big marine predators like sharks.

2. Explore the underwater world without scuba

Just because you don’t know how to swim doesn't mean you shouldn’t get to experience the incredible underwater world of Mauritius.

Some companies offer the opportunity to try the unique experience of undersea walking (also called helmet diving) or underwater submarine and sub scooter excursions to explore the wrecks and fish habitats.

Feels like you’re in a moving aquarium!

3. There are beaches everywhere

Not all islands have shores that are safe to swim or dive. The sand may be rocky or the current may be dangerous. But not in Mauritius. In fact, there are so many beautiful beaches for you to explore they’re divided into regions: the north, the south, the east and the west.

4. Watersports

For an adrenaline-pumping thrill, try parasailing, windsurfing, or kitesurfing. If you just want to explore the idyllic landscape, grab a kayak or SUP board. If you’re looking for a truly unique experience you can’t do anywhere else, opt for a Seakart speedboat ride.

5. Perfect Weather

Mauritius is blessed with a mild tropical maritime climate year-round. The water temperatures range from 73 to 83 degrees Fahrenheit while the air temperature remains a comfortable 71 to 87 degrees Fahrenheit.

What that means is, there's no wrong time to visit.
