Kayaking

by NorKayak Online Now Jan 24, 2013 at 12:35 AM

I plan to travel to Mauritius later this year. The idea is to rent a Kayak Sit-On-Top and to paddle around for 2 weeks, sleeping on beaches with my jungle hammock. Any of you guys know a place where I can rent a good kayak for more than a day and not too expensive?
Another thing, since I wanna sleep on beaches, is mosquitos, gnats and other blood suckers a big issue in Mauritius?

Thanks.

    I just got back from Mauritius the 9th Feb. I stayed in a rented flat and we had quite a problem with the mozzies, although they are not the "give you malaria type" they are still pests. Actually on the beaches we found that flies were bigger nuisances during the day.

    I would also be wary of where you pitch up for the night. Although the Mauriciens are in general very friendly, the sort that wander the beaches at night are perhaps not.
