Blessed with golden tropical sunshine, white sandy beaches and exquisite turquoise waters, the gorgeous island of Mauritius is the perfect location for a sailing holiday in winter, autumn or spring. You’ve been dreaming of this tropical bliss – why not turn it into a wonderful reality?
Whether you’re an experienced sailor looking for an exhilarating sail-away exploring offshore islands, or you’re a complete novice looking to learn the ropes, our team of friendly and professional instructors is here to guarantee you an experience you’ll never forget! On top of that, we offer a number of optional adventures to make the most of your holiday in this small but exquisite island in the middle of the Indian Ocean.
Your accommodation in paradise
We’re based at the welcoming Coral Azur hotel, well known for its intimate and personal service. Located directly on one of the island’s many beaches, and with lush gardens in which chirping birds provide you with the relaxing soundtrack of your holiday, the hotel provides rooms with private balconies, views of the ocean and spectacular sunsets to remember forever.
Perfect sailing conditions all year long
The lagoon right in front of the hotel is calm and safe for novices to practice their sailing skills. Go just outside of the reef and you’ll find stronger winds that allow you to blast away in controlled sessions at sea or to join our sail-aways in which we explore the smaller, exotic islands nearby.
Our wide range of dinghies and catamarans waits for you on the beach, fully rigged and ready. There is always ample gear for everyone, so you never need to wait. Our experienced, RYA qualified staff are always on hand guaranteeing the highest standards of professional instruction and safety.
Swimming with dolphins, scuba-diving, sea-kayaking and other adventures
While you’re certainly free to spend all your holiday sailing, you have the option to experience this world-in-one island in other ways as well. Swim with dolphins in the wild and explore the abundant underwater life on a tropical scuba diving session or by going out on a glass bottom boat. Take a kayak out to sea or travel around the island to visit its most historically and culturally significant sites. See the list of all the optional activities on our Mauritius page.
How to reach Mauritius?
The peaceful country of Mauritius lies in the middle of the Indian Ocean, between the south of India and East coast of Africa. Flights from the North of Europe are around 12 hours (if direct) and and non-peak season flights from the UK are around the £650-800 mark while a one week’s stay based on half-board, including our programme of activities, equipment, instruction and a number of optional adventures starts at £960 per person.
So, while most of Europe is getting darker and colder, imagine sliding your boat off the white sandy beach into the clear blue waters of the Indian Ocean. Bask in the warmth of the tropical sunshine as the palm trees fade in the distance while your dinghy or catamaran picks up the pace.
