Five Fun Activities For Teenagers On Holiday In Mauritius

  • 18/06/2024
  • Uncategorized

Mauritius is a dream destination for family holidays, with plenty of exciting activities for teenagers. Whether on land or a water-based, there’s something for every taste to ensure an unforgettable and intense holiday for them in Mauritius.   1) For Teenage Explorers: Quad Biking Immersion Mauritius boasts a host of exciting activities for teenagers, making for a dynamic holiday full of discoveries. Young adventurers in search of thrills can embark on quad biking excursions through a variety of landscapes. Private estates such as Anse la Raie in the north, Domaine de l’Étoile in the east and easily accessible from Mythic Suites&Villas, or Domaine de Bel Ombre in the south also run safe quad bike tours, all with experienced guides. Teenagers, often in pairs on their quad bikes, will ride through rivers and lush forests, discovering Mauritius’ rich flora and fauna up close. The iconic Casela Wildlife and Leisure Park, 15 minutes from Marguery Villas, provides a range of sporting and adventure activities. Courses include Nepalese bridges, zip-lines through the forest, and canyoning through picturesque waterholes, culminating in a swim at the foot of natural waterfalls. For even more fun, teenagers can tackle muddy buggy trails or go animal watching on a segway or quad bike.   2) For teenagers with a passion for water sports: Wakeboarding During their holidays in Mauritius, teenagers in search of thrills and adventures will have plenty to enjoy. Among the most exciting activities, wakeboarding stands out for its unique combination of water skiing, snowboarding and surfing. Carried out in the island’s shallow, crystal-clear lagoons, it’s the ideal activity for fans of board sports and extremes. The Bel Ombre lagoon and Baie du Cap in the south offer ideal conditions for your teenager to discover wakeboarding. From beginners to those wishing to perfect their aerial moves, an experienced professional will take them step by step through the new sensations in complete safety. For an even more rewarding experience, KiteGlobing Mauritius proposes tailor-made courses for children and teenagers aged 8 to 15. These sessions, which include windsurfing, kitesurfing and sailing, are designed to meet the specific needs of youngsters, guaranteeing an unforgettable experience for all levels. No previous water sports experience is necessary, but it is essential to know how to swim. https://www.kiteglobing.com/fr/wakeboarding   3) Padel in Tamarin for teenage racket enthusiasts For a dynamic and fun-filled holiday in Mauritius, padel at Tamarin, ten minutes from Marguery Villas, is a must for teenagers. This sport, which is both fun and popular, is easy to learn. Less technical than tennis, padel enables beginners to quickly learn the basics thanks to a smaller, more manageable racket and slower balls. The glass around the courts provides an extra opportunity to bounce the ball, making the game even more exciting. Riverland Mauritius has five paddle tennis courts, three of which are indoor and two of which are outdoor under tents, guaranteeing enjoyable play whatever the weather conditions. Open seven days a week, these courts give teenagers the opportunity to exercise, move around and have fun throughout their stay in Mauritius. Padel at Riverland is the ideal activity to explore and enjoy their holiday, either for a light fitness programme or for a more intense workout. https://www.rmclub.mu/fr/padel.html4) For teens who love the sea: the Blue Safari Submarine For an unforgettable holiday in Mauritius, adventure-loving teenagers can board the Blue Safari Submarine. This unique activity gives young explorers the chance to plunge down to a depth of 35 meters to explore the beautiful underwater world. With an experienced guide, young explorers will be able to admire colorful fish, vibrant coral, crabs and rays in their natural habitat. The submarine also includes a chance to explore the Star Hope wreck, now a haven for a diverse range of marine life. The fleet consists of two submarines: one for up to five passengers and the other for up to ten, ideal for groups or exclusive bookings. This immersion in the underwater world is a memorable experience that gives teenagers the opportunity to explore and marvel while on holiday in Mauritius. https://blue-safari.com/fr/accueil/   5) For Teenage Role Play Fans: Bowfighters Holidays in Mauritius offer a variety of exciting activities for teenagers, combining fun and exploration. Among the new activities, Bowfighters Archery Combat Game stands out. This innovative sport combines the excitement of paintball with the precision of archery. The game is played by two teams competing in archery matches. Each participant is equipped with a bow, mask and foam-tipped arrows to ensure safety while maximizing the fun. The aim is to eliminate opposing players or score points by hitting specific targets. Strategy, coordination and agility are essential to win. Teenagers must be at least 10 years old to take part, although the activity is recommended for those aged 12 and over. Bowfighters in Mauritius is the ideal activity for young people looking for a dynamic, fun-filled holiday and creating unforgettable memories. https://www.bowfightersgame.com/fr/ With these fun and exciting activities, holidays in Mauritius promise to be unforgettable for your teenagers. These suggestions cover a wide range of activities so that teenagers can have fun, learn and discover all that Mauritius has to offer.

Mauritius, a fragile ecosystem

  • 22/12/2023
  • Destination

Mauritius, a paradise between sea and sky Mauritius, a small paradise where sea meets sky, is home to an extraordinary and diverse ecosystem. The island is the ideal place to relax and enjoy natural beauties. But as with any paradise, it is also vulnerable.  A wildlife sanctuary Mauritius is home to an incomparably rich and fragile ecosystem, and is a sanctuary for a rich variety of flora and fauna. With its lagoons, the island hosts outstanding biodiversity, including sea turtles and dolphins, coral reefs teeming with tropical fish, and mangroves nesting migratory birds. A number of protected natural areas can also be found there, including the Black River Gorges National Park. Endemic forests and nature reserves shelter unique species, carefully protected to preserve their natural heritage. This island, once home to the famous dodo, now extinct, is today the habitat of species threatened with extinction, prompting the action of numerous NGOs dedicated to the protection of nature and reducing human activities impact. Preserving this ecosystem requires special attention. Efforts to ensure its protection and conservation are multiplying, and include raising awareness among both mauritian population and visitors. A fragile environment Mauritius is home to an ecosystem of exceptional beauty, but unparalleled fragility. Its insularity makes it particularly vulnerable to environmental pressures. Climate change is threatening the island’s coasts, jeopardizing its delicate balance. Human activities and tourism, although sources of prosperity, are exerting increasing pressure on this fragile environment. Faced with these challenges, the government and NGOs are mobilizing to safeguard nature, promoting the protection and conservation of Mauritian ecosystems. Rules of good behavior and a call for respect for nature are emerging to preserve this precious heritage. It is crucial to raise awareness and involve everyone in preserving this unique flora and fauna, working together to ensure a sustainable future for this wealth of biodiversity.   Many hazards The island’s insularity, its distance from the continents and its tropical climate make it a unique environment, but also a vulnerable one. Its coasts are both its main asset and its greatest vulnerability. Climate change is intensifying erosion, threatening shorelines, its stunning beaches and marine biodiversity. Pollution from human activities is a scourge for the endemic and protected species that inhabit these crystal-clear waters. The small size of the territory adds to the challenges: rising sea levels threaten low-lying areas, while drought threatens ecological stability as in rural areas according to statistics. Mauritius, home to unique species and endemic forests, is seeing these natural treasures crumble under the pressure of tourism.  Climate and erosion Mauritius is facing major challenges, mainly linked to climate change. The island’s coasts are regularly subjected to torrential rains and devastating cyclones, exacerbating erosion. Drought threatens the island more and more, adding further constraints to water supply mainly for rural populations. The island’s small size adds to these problems, intensifying existing pressure on natural resources. The crystal-clear lagoons and mangrove swamps, which are home to unique flora and fauna, are suffering the harmful effects of pollution and rising sea levels, threatening their delicate balance. Coastal erosion can also have a negative impact on the island’s economy. It can lead to the loss of tourist areas and natural resources. The government of Mauritius has taken measures to control coastline degradation, including the construction of dykes and jetties and the restoration of mangroves and coral reefs. However, these measures are insufficient to meet the challenges posed by climate change. It is important to raise public awareness about the risks associated with this phenomenon.   Pollution Mauritius is under increasing threat from island pollution.  A combination of factors is responsible, including the lack of litter bins in some places, the incivility of some public space users who do not respect the environment, and little recycling, which leads to an excessive waste build-up. Pollution has major consequences for the island. It can lead to the destruction of beaches, mangroves and coral reefs, which play an essential role in the island’s ecosystem.   The government of Mauritius has taken a number of measures to tackle pollution, including raising public awareness about its risks, reducing plastic use and providing public rubbish bins in tourist areas. Some private initiatives have emerged to sort glass, cardboard, cans, electrical and electronic waste.   Tourism Mauritius’s insularity makes it vulnerable to human activities in this island nation, particularly the flourishing tourism industry. Every year, hundreds of thousands of visitors flock to the island to enjoy water-based activities, creating pollution at sea as well as on its white sandy beaches and disturbing species. The construction of hotels along the coast is altering the shoreline, while tourism developments are having an impact on the surrounding natural environment. Luxury cruises and the growing flow of tourists are increasing the carbon footprint associated with travel.   Despite efforts to raise awareness and promote good practice, the impact remains. Preserving this paradise requires a collective awareness. Reducing the impact of construction, regulating tourist flows and promoting sustainable tourism are crucial to preserving the beauty and natural wealth of Mauritius. A shared responsibility is needed to ensure the long-term future of this island gem.  Conservation actions for Mauritius Numerous initiatives are emerging to safeguard this heritage. Governments, NGOs and regional organizations are mobilizing, raising awareness and educating people about the crucial importance of preservation. Protecting endemic species is a priority. Beach clean-up campaigns are regularly organized to counter the impact of human pollution. Short circuits in the economy are developing, encouraging responsible consumption and limiting our carbon footprint. Water is a precious resource in Mauritius. Limiting the use of water in hotels is an important measure for preserving this resource. Preserving Mauritius is a challenge that requires everyone’s commitment. By taking concrete steps, we can help protect this tropical paradise for the future and promote it as one of the best environmentally and safest countries
