Mauritius is rightly known for its pristine sapphire blue coloured beaches, with golden sands, and how can one not talk about the luxury resorts that provide a heavenly view of the vast Indian Ocean. You could either spend your day lazying around on the beach or in your hotel room, you could even take part in various beachside activities and water sports the island has to offer.
One of the most popular activity to indulge yourself in is the underwater solar sea walk. What is it? You may wonder.
First off, let me clear your mind by stating that the solar sea walk is entirely unrelated to scuba diving. As the name suggests, solar sea walk is walking on the seabed, in shallow waters, using solar powered helmets. The helmet provides a free flow of air supply. This means that there's a constant volume of oxygen present in your helmet, unlike in scuba diving, where air supply is delivered only when demanded.
This is also where technology comes into play. The helmet that you will be wearing will have electric compressors powered by solar energy, assuring a readily available supply of oxygen, for the ease of walking on the sandy sea bottom.
