Apart from shopping malls, what can you do on rainy days? Especially with children?
Head for the first oceanarium in Mauritius and the Indian Ocean: Odysseo.

My recommandations

  • Buy tickets online. With the QR code, you can access the oceanarium directly, and there’s no need to queue as it’s often very busy on rainy days and weekends.
  • For residents and citizens of Mauritius, you can take a look at Marideal to see if there are any promotions on admission.
  • You’ll find an outdoor snack area right in the middle of the tour. A great place for a snack, coffee or ice cream. Take advantage of the outdoor aquariums to observe stingrays and sharks.
  • Take advantage of this outing to make a detour to Caudan, accessible via the swing bridge.
  • We like to take the metro express, the local tramway that runs from Port Louis to Curepipe.
  • We get off at Victoria Terminal in Port Louis, then walk to Odysseo.
