Rest and Relaxation

The shores of Mauritius are lined with luxurious resorts, many of which boast their own spa onsite. Take the chance to unwind and treat yourself to some pampering at one of these wellness centres, which offer everything from full body massage to facial treatments.

Grand Baie

The island’s main tourist resort is located in the north within a sheltered bay dotted with bobbing boats and packed with activities for visitors. The streets are lined with excellent shops and restaurants, and it’s also a good place to check out tourist information centres to plan your next excursion. There’s even an aquarium, so kids are sure to be entertained on their visit.

Port Louis

The capital of Mauritius is well-known for shopping, and it is the ideal location to get some retail therapy in while on holiday. It’s not all about the shops though, as Port Louis is also home to some fascinating museums, including the Blue Penny that covers colonial history and the Natural History Museum, which houses an ancient dodo skeleton. Get a taste for the city’s multicultural feel as you wander around China Town or make your way up to Signal Mountain for the best sunset views.

Eureka House

The colonial Eureka House was constructed in 1830, and nowadays showcases the life of aristocrats in 19th century Mauritius. The beautiful wooden house, which was once a sugar plantation, overlooks a lush tropical garden bursting with leafy palms and fruit trees as well as several waterfalls that add to the tranquil feel of the grounds.

Golf

Mauritius is well known for its golfing opportunities; indeed, the island is home to almost a dozen top class courses. Some are connected to resorts, so be sure to stay at one of these if you are keen to get plenty of golf in during your stay.

Beaches

It is impossible to choose the best beach in Mauritius, so be sure to sample as many as you can while there. The island is renowned for its picture-perfect beaches complete with beautiful white sands and clear turquoise waters. Pitch up a sun lounger and get your tan on, or retreat to the shade of the palm trees as you sip on a fresh fruity cocktail – the choice is yours.?

Chamarel

Get out into the great outdoors and explore the area of Chamarel. Here you’ll find unbelievable coloured soils in hues of blue, green, red and yellow, all produced by the erosion of volcanic ash. What’s more, there are also impressive waterfalls and the charming Chamarel Village, within which you can learn more about local culture as well as sample some Mauritian dishes.

Isle aux Aigrettes

Take a boat ride from Pointe Jérôme out to this tiny island made up of corals and surrounded by the turquoise seas. This is thought to have been the last stronghold of the famous dodo, but today you will find gentle Aldabra tortoises meandering about.

Water Sports

With such clear waters, it would be a shame not to get involved in some of the marine activities that are on offer around Mauritius. Plenty of centres are located in all the main tourist hubs, each offering rental of equipment and lessons for everyone from beginners to experts. Grab a snorkel, mask and some flippers and set out on an underwater adventure exploring the island’s many coral reefs and unique fish species. Alternatively, get your adrenaline pumping and try your hand at water skiing.

La Vanille Nature Park

Kids will love the chance to get up close and personal with some of the island’s most fascinating wildlife at this nature park. La Vanille is a conservation centre dedicated to preserving a whole host of weird and wonderful creatures, including tortoises, crocodiles, and iguanas. What’s more, there’s also a kid-friendly restaurant and a jungle playground where they can play to their heart’s content.

Black River Gorges National Park

Ditch the sun lounger and throw on your hiking boots as you set out for the beautiful Black River Gorges National Park. Encompassing almost 70km2, this park comprises lush tropical rainforest, steep hills and the dramatic gorges that earned it its name. There are many hiking trails to explore, but we definitely recommend heading to the Black River Peak viewpoint at some point for panoramic views across the island. See if you can spot some macaque monkeys along the way! With such beautiful scenery and so many things to do, it is easy to see why the country has become such a popular holiday destination. But the best way to get to know this enchanted isle is by experiencing it first-hand. Take a look at some of our deals and offers today and begin planning your adventure.
