Quick Guide

Are you the kind of person who loves the idea of a beach holiday but you know that in reality you’ll get bored after half an hour and need to do something? Mauritius is the place for you! It’s got everything for the ants-in-the-pants holiday-maker. It’s the kind of place that you don’t even have to organise an activity; you can just go for a wander in the forest behind the beach, or through the streets near the hotel, and be rewarded with a fascinating find.

Head to Black River Gorges National Park for amazing vistas and to be at one with nature. Pointe d’Esny and Blue Bay are the pinnacle of stunning coastal scenery and brilliant blue ocean.

Make sure you visit the Creole mansion of Eureka for a snapshot of Mauritius’ colonial history and the plantation era. For markets you can’t miss Port Louis’ Central Market and the Monday Market in Mahebourg.

When it is time for that relaxing beach day, make your way to Tamarin Beach, or Le Morne Peninsula. For the feeling of a secret beach, head to the as-yet-untouched-by-tourism Le Souffleur outside of Souillac.
