Mauritius Holidays


A holiday in Mauritius is a treat for the eyes and the soul with dramatic volcanic peaks, rushing rivers and refreshing waterfalls encircled by over 200 miles of reef protected golden sands. The island’s natural splendour is matched by an impressive array of stylish resorts where high levels of comfort and exceptional personal service ensure a holiday to remember.

Attractions
Watersports
The calm, reef-encircled shoreline is ideal for snorkelling as well as a whole range of other watersports. The majority of our featured resorts offer boat-based dive excursions while several hotels have their own on site dive centres – water clarity is best from November to March. The fishing is also renowned.

Golf
Golf is increasingly popular in Mauritius. There are championship golf courses at Constance Belle Mare Plage, Four Seasons Resort Mauritius at Anahita, Heritage Awali Golf & Spa Resort and Shangri-La's Le Touessrok Resort & Spa.

Parks
This lush and mountainous island is home to an array of exotic flora and fauna. Many parks can be accessed on day tours including Pamplemousse Royal Botanical Gardens with its rare native plants and a colony of giant tortoises, the superb walking trails of Black River Gorges National Park and Domaine des Pailles, where horse-drawn carriages take visitors back to earlier days with a sugar mill, rum distillery and spice garden to explore.

Shopping
The capital, Port Louis, has a daily market and offers a wide range of goods while the National Handicraft Centre displays the work of local artists and craftsmen.

    Top Tips From Our Experts

    Expert Travel Consultants
    Katie Tidey

    Take some time to explore the island - head over to Chamarel where you have a waterfall, the 7 coloured earth and rum tasting!

    Expert Travel Consultants
    Sarah Moore

    Visit Port Louis and soak up some local living. The markets are the perfect place for souvenirs and gifts. The food market is also fascinating to walk around. Following the shopping you can grab a nice lunch down at the waterfront.

    Expert Travel Consultants
    Andrew Hunter

    Mauritius is renowned for having amazing beaches. However little known 'Black River Gorge National Park' is also well worth a visit. Once you get high up in to the mountains, the views across the island and out to sea are stunning.
