Plenty of sunshine, white sandy beaches and the warm Indian Ocean await you on your holiday to Mauritius.

Mauritius is an Indian Ocean island holiday paradise destination with plenty for visitors to do. The interior has tall peaks and dense rainforests, and the impressive Black River Gorges National Park. The park has hiking trails, waterfalls and fascinating flora and fauna. There are offshore reefs for diving and snorkelling enthusiasts. From the lovely lagoons to the very edges of its sandy beaches, this is an island begging to be explored. Port Louis is the capital and the city has a good market and the Champs de Mars horse-racing course. There is also a delightful botanical garden created in the 18th century. The waterfront area has recently undergone restoration work and is now more appealing. The main resort areas of the island are Riviere Noire (sport fishing), the lively Flic en Flac (scuba), the quieter Trou-aux-Biches and Mont Choisy.

Travel Tips & Advice for Mauritius

Mauritius Activities


As you'd expect, Mauritius is abundant with things to do, particularly activities based in and around the water. Take a dip below the waves on a scuba diving or snorkelling excursion, sail on top of the swell as you flit between the mainland and its islets, or experience a glass-bottomed boat. Further inland, guided half-day hikes will allow you to see so much more of Mauritius, while Segway, kayaking and quad biking expeditions are recommended. This is your dream break, so fulfil it.

Mauritius Food & Drink


Inspired by its inhabitants, Mauritian cuisine is a culture unto itself. Combining influences from the Creole culture, France, China and India, you haven't tasted anything like this before, and will enjoy sampling so many amazing flavours in the time you have. While enjoying an intimate dinner on the beach, or heading out for a meal in one of the islands fine restaurants is encouraged, it's on the streets that food really comes into its own - get ready to taste the real Mauritius.

Mauritius Attractions


There is little chance of you escaping the wildlife in Mauritius, and there are many nature parks, sanctuaries, aquariums and botanical gardens dotted around the island. Unsurprisingly, some of the most popular interactions are swimming with dolphins in the Black River, strolling with lions at Casela Nature Park, venturing through the marine park by submarine, and taking underwater walking to a whole new level in Grand Bay. Get ready to greet the local people and to pose for pictures.
