Holidays to Mauritius

Situated in the Indian Ocean, Mauritius is small in size but scores big on natural beauty. The archipelago is known for a mind-boggling variety of birds and fish, lush vegetation and beautiful, white beaches. Mauritius boasts of some of the best luxury resorts and hotels in the world, which offer ocean-view rooms, pampering spa services and decadent seafood. 

 

Mauritius is well-connected to the rest of the world with plenty of international flights flying in and out of the country. Adventure sports feature big on the bucket list of most that travel here. The Black River Gorges National Park, a wild expanse of green meadows and forests, is a great place to check out the flora and fauna of the island too. 

 

The beaches, particularly those of Belle Mare, Palmer and Ile auf Cerfs are a great place to relax and soak up the summer sun, but they are also great places to catch a glimpse of the whales and dolphins of the Indian Ocean. Mauritius Holidays would not be complete without sampling the amazing variety of cuisines: Creole, Indian and French. 

 

All in all, Mauritius is a tropical wonderland, which will be hard to let go of when your holiday comes to an end.

Places to go and things to do in Mauritius

Fun in the Sea 

Fun in the Sea 

Mauritius is a paradise for aficionados of water-based fun, presenting an array of thrilling experiences.

The island is surrounded by calm waters, perfect for indulging in various water sports.

The majority of expansive resort hotels provide a variety of aquatic activities within their all-inclusive packages, including sea-karting which is unique to the island. Commandeer one of these speedy water carts for an unconventional adventure along the mesmerizing coastline.

While the eastern coast of Mauritius is renowned for its lavish resorts, the western shore is best for aquatic adventures. Spinner and bottlenose dolphins can be seen here, as can humpback whales as they navigate their migration route through the open sea off this coast. Make sure you book a trip to these wonderful creatures.

All Inclusive Resorts

If you want to spend a few weeks relaxing, Mauritius is the ultimate destination for you.

The beach resorts of Mauritius have few peers, which is why it is a favourite with honeymooners.

Some 5* resorts are the height of exclusivity and have everything on-site, meaning you will never have to leave the resort.

However, if you want to get out and explore, this is possible too. Some resorts even cater for families with kids' clubs available as well as plenty of water sports.

The attraction of Mauritius is it has almost endless accommodation options, all offering first-class service and amazing food, so it doesn’t matter which part of the island you head to, there'll be abundant resorts to choose from.

Expect world-class resort spas, fine dining, white beaches and more all at your fingertips.

Must-Sees

Mauritius is not just sun, sea and sand. Away from the beaches and coast is sensational scenery and an abundance of wildlife.

Black River Gorges National Park is a protected wilderness that is only a 30-minute drive from the beach. The forest is home to many native species such as the Mauritius kestrel, the echo parakeet and the pink pigeon. Look out for waterfalls and white-tailed tropicbirds flying high above the gorges as you hike through this amazing place.

For something unique, head to the hamlet of Chamarel. Situated high in the hills and with glorious views, Chamarel is an up-and-coming culinary reputation that makes it a haven for foodies.

No trip to Mauritius would be complete without a visit to the capital, Port Louis. The city boasts palm trees, colourful Chinese and Indian temples and churches, and a bustling central market. After a long day exploring, visit the waterfront area and enjoy some local cuisine whilst unwinding.

Explore the Coasts 

The northern islands are a delight. Boasting breathtakingly pristine sandy beaches and exceptional snorkelling conditions, an excursion to them is essential when on luxury Mauritius holidays.

In the south, you’ll find a much more sedate picture. Expect to see sugar cane fields, forests, waterfalls, rivers and mountains, all of which can be explored through self-guided tours or joined explorations.

The Seven Colored Earth Geopark, with its vibrant dunes showcasing a spectrum of seven distinct colours, is a coastal sight you simply can't afford to miss. As one of Mauritius's top attractions and a highlight for any visitor, this captivating geological spectacle offers incredibly picturesque views.
