WATCH: The most beautiful boat race can be found in Mauritius
In the azure bays of Mahebourg, an explosion of colour zigzags across its gleaming surface as fishermen and boat enthusiasts prepare for a Mauritian regatta.
This traditional boat race is a stunning sight from land and on the sea, and when planning your next trip to the island, be sure to coincide your schedule with a regatta either at Mahebourg or Grand Gaube.
