Water Sports lovers, music fanatics, and anyone wishing to have a good time, this festival is for you! Whether you want to have fun with exciting water & land activities or simply want to chill and enjoy live concerts during an all-day music festival, Hotel RIU Creole is the place to be on 4 December 2021!
The Ocean Active Festival is BACK!
After two successful editions we are changing it up a bit with a new venue: RIU, Hotel and Resort. Together with HOT Day Out, Fast and RSVP Group, the winning team is back with a spectacular concept of this lifestyle festival that focuses on a multitude of water sports, trail run and VTT during a music festival throughout the day, not only providing unique competing opportunities to many Mauritian and passionate water sport athletes, but also allowing them to enjoy a full day in the west coast with their families, playing several sports and watching live concerts - bringing people of all ages together to celebrate our incredible Indian Ocean.
The Ocean Active Festival strives to be an eco-friendly sustainable event with the hope of proving this to all the attendees through the satellite events and displays leading up to the event.
RIU is an unbeatable location to enjoy water sports such as windsurfing, kayaking, snorkeling or paddle surfing, amongst other activities. Located right beside Le Morne beach, in the southwest of Mauritius, it’s the perfect venue to host an amazing lifestyle event such as the Ocean Active Festival.
The Ocean Active Festival is for everyone who LOVES the ocean & music!

The Festival and Entertainment:
The race village will take the form of a music festival with themed bars, chill areas with shade and seating and of course a music stage.
Entertainment will be provided throughout the event. Supporters and athletes can enjoy the music stage which will start by featuring up and coming live band acts throughout the day. After races and prize giving are complete, all guests will have a chance to enjoy and finish their days with some of the best Mauritian Band Acts, ending-off the great day out with some equally spectacular dance moves.
