Adventure Holidays in Mauritius: Activities for Kids in MauritiusLike2

We are so consumed with the idea of  keeping the kids entertained that there are so many options today than there ever was in my generation! Every season, a new activity and genre of entertainment is being born, making it a world for the children! Hopefully less iPads and computer games and more nature and outdoor activities. Intellectual activities, reading, exercising etc. Luckily for me, I have adopted the no iPad or TV rule when we travel so that makes it super easy for her to accept the fact that she has no choice but to participate in every single activity!  During my visit to Mauritius, I had done tons of research on adventure holidays in Mauritius for the children and things to do with kids Mauritius, and was very lucky because I had chosen the resorts to stay in, that are super friendly with kids, so, here is a list of the wonderful activities for kids in Mauritius. I booked some of the activities through Kreola a destination tour agency which was super professional and wonderful to work with! 

Always remember the bring sunscreen and don’t pack the iPad! Please, do not support of visit any wildlife activities that allows you to walk with them or take selfies with them.

 

Adventure Holidays in Mauritius: Activities for Kids in Mauritius

 

  1. Zip Lining in Domaine de L’etoile – An incredible experience in Mauritius for children from age experiencing the adrenalin rush in nature! The activity can be done with a parent attaching onto each other’s harness, or alone!
  2. Buggy Ride or Quad Biking – For a certain age group, Quad biking is not allowed for safety reasons so we opted for buggy ride which is in my opinion way more fun! Booked through Kreola and did our activities in Domaine de L’etoile.
  3. Kids Fun Village – A fun village in Mauritius for children from 3 years to 12 years old. From Trampolines to treetop adventures, mini quad biking and much more!
  4. Cooking classes – While staying at Constance Prince Maurice, my 6 year old and I decide to take a sushi cooking class. It was difficult at first watching the chef cut the salmon open but once we started to roll, we had lots of fun! You can also book pizza making or even bake!
  5. Swimming with the Dolphins – Kreola is a travel specialist where they helped us book our day trips. They offer swimming with the dolphins as part of a tour packge and kids LOVE IT! Dolphins are in the wild ofcourse and it is not guaranteed that you always see them but Kreola always organizes the trips very early in the morning, because that is when the possibility to see the dolphins are higher.
  6. Water Ski – One of the most fun activities in the water for children! You have a choice of skiis or to sit in an inflated balloon which looks so comfortable and kids love being dragged through the water.
  7. Hiking – A great way to wake up and learn about nature, get the excecrise going and to explore. Hiking is an excellent adventure activity in Mauritius for kids because they get to learn about mother nature and you also have some quality time with them! Just remember to always bring water with you and a good cap!
  8. Picnic at Isle Aux Cerfs – A day well spent here! Book with Kreola on the ‘one love’ boat or the catamaran which both are safe and fun for children and visit Isle Aux Cerf for a day out in the sun, picnic and lots of water sports activities for kids and on land activities.
  9. Solar Under Sea Walking – We have not personally tried this but for any children older than 5 years old then this should be one crazy experience!
  10. BBQ nights at Constance Prince Maurice – One of the activities I loved for kids in Mauritius while staying at Constance Prince Maurice is the BBQ night theme they had on for one night for 6:30pm to 9:00pm. The kids had a special evening planned for them with bbq under the stars and a movie night! It made my daughter feel super special with her night out with her friends
  11. Tennis – A sport that is widely played in Mauritius. You can even book your own private instructor.
  12. Feeding the fish – As simple as this may sound, every night and every morning, chloe would go out the reception of Shangri-La Le Touessrok Resort and Spa and feed the fish in the pond!
  13. Chocolate wrap massage – A fun thing to do for mommy and me is the chocolate wrap and massage at  Shangri-La Le Touessrok Resort and Spa – We ended up laughing the whole time and by the time our massage ended, we had already slept through!
  14. Blue Safari – In Mauritius, you get to enjoy the underwater in a submarine in Trou Aux Biches in the North-Western part of Mauritius. Just make sure that it is a clear day with almost no wind at all, otherwise, visibility will be poor and too much shaking of the submarine can make your little one feel a little sick.
  15. The Botanical Garden in Pamplemousse – A beautiful walk through the garden educating the little ones. Make sure you also hire a tour guide as it is much more enlightening with information! There are also no food or drinks or restaurants so make sure you get your own!

  • One of the very few images in @joalimaldives that I saved on laptop before my memory card on my drone got completely corrupted and wiped out everything. 💆🏼 Note to self: Sh** happens 🐠 ☀️
  • She has a thousand things to say to you... and a thousand reasons not to 💫
  • It’s a fact that I struggle with words often face to face, because strong feelings can all be inside me but only left for me to feel them... It is not that the meaning cannot be explained... But there are certain meanings that are lost the moment they are explained in words, and that’s how, without any pressure, I’ve learned to take it all in... 💫
  • Are you a beach villa or a water-villa person?
Each water villa at @joalimaldives has a 35sqm pool (Apart from the ocean residence which have two pools like this one!)
Happy Sunday from the happiest island! ♥️
  • A wish you were here kind of day 💫
@joalimaldives
  • Maldives is a beautiful paradise but has a fragile ecosystem that plays a role to keep the magic alive. The construction at JOALI Maldives @joalimaldives was designed to build around the trees, to save as many as possible. They saved over 1000 trees and work so passionately on sustainability. 🐠 It’s very close to my heart that we constantly support and value our ocean especially the marine life ♥️
  • I love to introduce you to JOALI Maldives. @joalimaldives 
A brand new island that stands out because it has built its’ whole identity on ‘Joie de vivre’ which constitutes the art of living... really, truly living life, embracing it fully. Whether you call it living in the moment, or self fulfillment, joie de vivre is a quality and a feeling we can all learn to acquire. Say hello to the beautiful and unique @joalimaldives
  • It’s just who she is, a little entertainer, especially when I ask her to look at the camera so we can take a ‘subtle’ shot... but nope, instead, she breaks into her dance moves and I thought... why the hell not... and just took the picture. ♥️
  • One of the most beautiful places I’ve been to, Madeira Island 🌴 - An Island 2 hours away from Lisbon by plane! Have you ever been?
  • A year ago today I was in Cambodia 🇰🇭 💫
So much growth from where I was and where I am today, but I’ll always remember where I started. 
I’m curious to know, which was the first photograph you remember of me since you started following my journey?
  • A new week in the UAE and my last before being back on the road! It’s been a great break from flying but I think I’m ready to get back out there with my camera! 
Happy Sunday everyone! Kick ass in whatever you are doing today! ♥️
  • Who is coming with me!? We just released new dates for @travelwithtjd for 2019 and I am overwhelmed with your responses!! There is a power in disconnection and I find it right here! I now count the days to go back to Finland and everywhere in Scandinavia. 
Click the link in bio and join our Adventure Travel Movement in Finland in March 2019! Spaces are very limited 😊 and it’s an adventure of a lifetime in the most authentic way!! ♥️
