Get some historical perspective at Siva Soopramaniar Kovile Bel-Air Riviere Seche and Sagar Shiv Mandir. Visiting Speed Boats Tours and Swim with Dolphins will get you outdoors.

There's much more to do: identify plant and animal life at Wildlife Areas, step off the mainland to explore Ile des Deux Cocos, admire the sheer force of Les 7 Cascades, and play a few rounds at Anahita Golf Club.
