Fishing in Mahébourg Bay

sport & wellness

Dotted with protected islands and islets, Mahébourg Bay is one of the most beautiful of Mauritius. In addition to its exceptional seabed, it is an ideal spot for fishing.

Small Mauritian fishing boats offer sport fishing from November to May, as Mahébourg Bay is full of very large fish lurking just offshore. But be warned: patience and physical strength are needed to land a blue marlin, a shark, a bonito, a pilgrim, or a barracuda.

For the less hardy, hand line fishing is also practiced a great deal on the island. On their small colourful boats, Mauritian fishermen will be happy to share their tricks with you. And to mix things up a bit, they regularly move anchor. What better way to explore the captivating turquoise waters of the Mahébourg Bay?
