The western dive sites of Mauritius include drop-offs, walls, reefs as well as wrecks, and are mostly found along the coastline of Flic en Flac. Just like its sister island, Reunion, Mauritius is born of volcanic eruptions. The flow of lava left incredible underwater seascapes. Tunnels, where lava once flowed, are now shelters for crustaceans as well as magnificent underwater discovery spots. Sites like Cathedral, found on the west part of Mauritius will leave divers in awe. It is a gigantic cave, reminiscent of a Cathedral vault, that divides the drop- off in two. The blue contrasts projected against the wall of the gigantic arch, bring a very special feel to the dives. Further south, the same drop-off gives birth to huge arches like Bamboo or l’Eveillé, where trevallys, giant moray eels and sometimes stingrays hide into the shadows. Further north, Snake reef is one of the most popular dive sites of the island for amateurs of macrophotography. It is the dwelling place of various species of scorpion fish, moray eels as well as a wide variety of critters.
