Why Visit Mauritius?

Tropical paradise

An island haven perfect for relaxing, exploring, or both.




Whilst perfect for winter sun, being just 20 degrees south of the Equator, Mauritius is an all year round destination, with its very own microclimate.




The north of the island is full of sheltered coves, whilst the east is miles upon miles of glamour and talcum powder sand. Head south for some surf or west for shallow waters and the best sunsets.




Venture into the interior of this lush island and visit the Black River Gorges National Park for luxuriant flora and fauna, cascading waterfalls and spectacular landscape; hike up Le Morne Brabant early one morning, or take a guided tour to L’Ile aux Aigrettes – to see how Mauritius would have looked 500 years ago.


A real culinary destination, the food here draws influences from France, India, Africa and even China – a truly Creole mix of dishes and flavours. Mauritians love al fresco cooking and food is most definitely for sharing.


Colourful culture

From restored colonial mansions to Hindu temples and from French chateaux to the Chinese quarter in Port Louis; lively street markets and quiet fishing villages, Mauritius promises a heady mix.



There’s every type of watersport you can think of – above and below the surface; world class golf courses, zip lining (with the longest in the Indian Ocean at 3.5km), 4×4 adventures, horse riding and hiking.
