As a beginner, I would advise you to practice in a swimming pool rather than the sea itself because the latter you scare you more as it looks big and the water depth may be inconsistent. You can get a relative or friend to teach you how to swim at any of the places below:

  • Serge Alfred Swimming Pool, Beau Bassin
  • Pavillon Swimming Pool, Quatre Bornes
  • Rivière du Rempart Swimming Pool
  • Souvenir Swimming Pool, Calebasses
  • Mare D'Albert Swimming Pool

Some of the places mentioned above may have instructor led classes. Otherwise many of the sea activities and tours provider in the north (Grand Baie) have experienced divers and swimmers who also give swimming lessons.

PS : What's the secret with your age? lol
