Petit Futé's opinion on SENTIER SOUS-MARIN

Plate millesim 2022

Created by Reef Conservation, an association for the protection of marine ecosystems, this nautical trail, the only one of its kind in Mauritius, has been set up in the heart of the Voluntary Conservation Zone of Anse la Raie. Chosen by and for the community (fishermen, inhabitants, tourist operators, NGOs...), it consists in closing a part of the lagoon to fishing in order to limit the degradation of the coral reef and to fight against the decrease of the marine biodiversity. In exchange, local fishermen are authorized, after having followed a specific training and for a small contribution for the journey, to take travelers to the site of the protected area. This is located 10 minutes by boat from the coast, in a very quiet area inside the lagoon. There, a signposted path with educational panels has been laid out underwater. Equipped with a snorkel mask, you can walk the 250 metres of this interesting and curious circuit, which lasts no more than 20 minutes. Ideal to make children aware of the importance of protecting nature, this original excursion, at a very low price, is also a way to get involved in local life, to meet fishermen and to participate in the preservation of the Mauritian lagoon.

If you are lucky enough to stay at the Lagoon Attitude, one of the first hotels in Mauritius to be committed to responsible and sustainable tourism ( Positiv Impact movement), you can extend the dive with a visit to the Marine Discovery Center, an educational center dedicated to the protection of the lagoon.
