Mauritius Becoming Sporting Destination

Stakeholders note that Mauritius is becoming known as an ideal destination for sports tourism.

“Mauritius is becoming an increasingly popular sporting destination. We have seen good growth in this sector with various sporting tournaments taking place on the island,” said Carla da Silva, regional manager, Southern Africa and Latin America, Air Mauritius.

Joanne Visagie, director, sales and marketing, Beachcomber Tours, highlights the most popular formal sports events hosted in Mauritius include The Paradis Golf Challenge which has become so popular that, to keep numbers down, a second one is being held in August/September.

For those seeking a shot of adrenaline, there’s the Mauritius Tour Beachcomber which includes four races as well as a dedicated kids’ race. There’s also the Ultra Trail Raidlight Beachcomber, which allows trail runners to discover the wild and authentic side of Mauritius
