Point Aux Piments Snorkeling

The 2nd most popular snorkel dive spot in Mauritius.

East of Madagascar on the northwest coast of Mauritus, the snorkeling at Point Aux Piments is known for its protected reef. The best snorkeling is right off the Recif Attitude Hotel. The protected reef about 600 feet offshore. The water depth is from 3 feet up to 30 feet deep and provides habitat for butterflyfish, chromis, damselfish, goatfish, pipefish, wrasse and surgeonfish. There are also a few hawksbill turtles around.

The best time of year for snorkeling off Mauritus is during the summer from December through March. The water water is ideal habitat for plentiful marine life and the marine plants bloom. But the water temperature is good all year round for snorkelers.

Overall, Point Aux Piments is the 2nd most popular snorkel dive spot of all 7 snorkeling dives in Mauritius.
