Holidays to Mauritius

Overview

Resting off the coast of the African continent is the romantic and welcoming island of Mauritius. A favourite destination for families and loved-up honeymooners, visitors can spend their days on the soft, white sand and take those envy-inducing pictures of the exotic palm trees which fringe the coast. Cool down from the sizzling sun by taking a dip in the wonderful waters of the Indian Ocean and admire a view which money just can’t buy.

Things to Do

It’s pretty much impossible to go to Mauritius and completely avoid the first class coastline which outlines the island. Le Morne Barbant Beach a brilliant option for snorkelling and Tamarin Beach is a surfer’s paradise. The Black River Gorges National Park is a great area for scenic hikes, and the Capital, Port Louis, has a lively Central Market and the world famous Champ de Mars racecourse on its doorstep.

Food and Drink

Although it might be tempting to stay in your resort whilst in Mauritius, venturing out to different parts of the island gives you the chance to sample the delicious local foods this island has to offer. With a mixture of Creole, Chinese, Indian and French inhabitants, the food of Mauritius draws its influences from a number of cultures. The seafood is excellent, and street food is a fun way to grab snacks on the go!
