SENTIER SOUS-MARIN

Petit Futé's opinion on SENTIER SOUS-MARIN

Vintage plate 2020

Established by Reef Conservation, an association for the protection of marine ecosystems, this water trail, which is only of its kind in Mauritius, has been set up in the heart of the L'Anse de l'Anse de l'Anse la Raie. Chosen by and for the community (fishermen, inhabitants, tourist operators, ngos…), it consists of closing a part of the lagoon to fishing to limit the degradation of the coral reef and to combat the reduction of marine biodiversity. In exchange, local fishermen are allowed, after a specific training and with a small contribution for the journey, to take the passengers to the site of the protected area. It is located 10 minutes by boat from the coast, in a very quiet area inside the lagoon. There, a signposted path of didactic panels has been set up under the water. Equipped with a snorkeling, the 250 meters of this interesting and interesting circuit, which lasts no more than 20 minutes, does not accept more than 12 people at a time. Ideal for raising children's awareness of the importance of nature protection, this original excursion, at a small price, is also a way to get involved in local life, meet fishermen and participate in the preservation of the Mauritian lagoon.
