Cruise along the stunning west coast of Mauritius when you take our amazing catamaran trip to Benitiers Island. Along the journey, you will see the famous Crystal Rock, a natural monument that seems to float on the surface of the Indian Ocean.
Benitiers Island Catamaran Trip
It's not difficult to disconnect in Mauritius, but it's even easier on board a catamaran. Drift along the idyllic turquoise waters of the Indian Ocean and discover the paradise beaches and islands on the west coast of the archipelago. We set off from the docks at Black River and launch ourselves into the first fantastic experience of the day: cruising over the coral reef.
After witnessing the amazing variety of colors under the surface of the water here, we will head towards Tamarin Bay. If you are lucky, we will even have the chance to spend some time with the friendly dolphins that swim and play in this area of the island. Later, we will stop at the beaches of La Preuneuse and L'Harmonie, where you can take some time to relax and sunbathe on the fine white sand, and take a dip in the gorgeous emerald water.
Our fantastic boat trip continues with a delicious onboard meal as we drift towards the island of Benitiers. Among the tasty food for you to enjoy are freshly grilled fish and meat.
As we approach the last destination on the route, the spectacular Crystal Rock will magically appear before your eyes. This iconic, diamond-shaped rock appears to float on the surface of the ocean. This is one of Mauritius' most famous natural landmarks. Then we finally arrive on the shores of the shore of the island of Benitiers where we disembark and enjoy the rest of the day on its heavenly beaches.
The tour ends back at the original departure point in Black Rock at around 3:30 pm.
During the winter season, from mid-May to October, low tides occur on the west coast, so the boat is forced to make a stop about 30-50 feet from the main beach and guests must walk to the shore.
Please wear beach shoes or rubber boots for the trip.
