Destination Overview

One of the most incredible places in the world is the island nation found in the Indian Ocean, Mauritius. The country is a part of Africa and is located southeast from the coast of the continent and welcomes many tourists to its shores to share its beauty with the rest of the world.

Mauritius is the tiny neighbour of the island Madagascar, therefore encompasses some of the rare and intriguing wildlife only found in this part of the world. Tourism in Mauritius has grown very quickly over the past decade, as the country has developed and built up resorts to ensure travellers will enjoy that sought after island luxury during their Mauritius holiday. Water sports, ancient ruins and picturesque sunsets are just a glimpse of what this exotic destination has to offer.

Holidays to Mauritius are always spent with days laying by the beach and snorkelling with the colourful fish in the shallow reefs of the coast lines. The island nation has some of the clearest waters in the Indian Ocean and offers amazing experiences for scuba diving and glass bottom boat cruises. South of the island offers the best location for these activities at Blue Bay. Believed to behold the most beautiful bluest looking waters in the Indian Ocean and now home to the Blue Bay Marine Park, this area promises a great time for all the family. Discover rare marine species and corals, and enjoy the picturesque landscapes that remain protected and untouched by tourism development. On the west side of the island you will find Tamarin beach which is popular with tourists for its dolphins that reside in the bay and its great views of an extinct volcano. No Mauritius holiday is complete without visiting one of the many fishing villages to soak up the Mauritian culture and try the traditional fresh foods on offer. Flic en Flac is an ideal village to visit with its fine sandy beaches and local restaurants, you are sure to see the country’s incredible culture first hand.

Your holiday in Mauritius will promise to be a relaxing and secluded getaway from the everyday world. With its thriving wilderness and beaches you’ve only ever seen on the front of postcards, the country truly is a little piece of paradise. Visitors don’t often associate Mauritius as a shopping destination, however, the Bazaar located in the country’s capital, Port Louis, is not to be missed. The market sells everything from food to clothes, and stretches along the streets in the lively city. Authentic and cheap food is sold at the stalls and is probably the best on the island. The main items to make sure you pick up however, are the hand-made Mauritian crafts that are made by natives, and are the most unique goods to take home as souvenirs to remember your holiday to Mauritius.

Most visitors plan their Mauritius holidays in the areas of Grand Bay (locally known as Grand Baie), Port Louis or Blue Bay. While there are resorts and hot spots all around the coasts of the island, these have definitely grown to be the more popular destinations. With paradise islands come luxury resorts, and rest assured, your Mauritius holiday is no different. 5-star beachside resorts are found on many of the beaches and will have you feeling pampered and relaxed in no time! Whether you’re travelling with your partner looking for a romantic upscale resort, or a family friendly holiday that goes easy on the wallet, Mauritius prides itself on it’s varying range of high standard resorts to please all visitor’s budgets.

The country experiences two seasons made up of summer and winter and only sees an average drop of 5°C between the two. This makes planning easier as there is no real time of year to avoid, and as a consequence there is no real busy peak season.

Mauritius’ Independence Day also falls in March and sees the country filled with celebrations and festivals. Port Louis holds the biggest festivities along the beach and tourists can be sure to expect incredible live entertainment and musical scenes. Newlyweds generally choose this time of year for their honeymoon.
