What to do in Mauritius
Explore and relax on the exquisite beaches. Hire a bike or rent a car to find your own slice of paradise. The most popular beaches on the island are:
• Pereybere and Mont Choisy in the North
• Flic en Flac in the West
• Blue Bay in the South
• Belle Mare in the East
These beaches are perfect for both snorkelling, or simply swimming and sunbathing. Hire a sundeck chair, grab a fresh coconut from a vendor, and sit back and relax. You’re in Mauritius! For those who like a little more action, many beaches have water sports activities, from snorkelling to surfing to diving or dolphin boat tours.
For a little more luxury, enjoy a heavenly day out on the crystal waters with a local Catamaran cruise. Enjoy a cooked lunch, drinks, snorkelling and perhaps even visit an island
Rochester falls: Take a walk through sugar plantations to reach these stunning 10 meter high waterfalls, and don't forget to bring your swimwear so you can take a dip! Grab a fresh coconut from a vendor at the top of the falls and enjoy nature’s splendour.
Le Morne Brabant: You can partially climb this mountain for free, however, due to its challenging nature, a guide is required in order to summit. It’s worth it for the spectacular ocean views. Don’t miss this experience if you love hiking!
Port Louis: Soak up the island's history by taking a self-guided walk through this port city. Check out the temples, museums, traditional markets, rum distilleries, Palace D'Armes, casinos and more!
The Black River Gorges National Park: Another must-see for nature lovers. Enjoy some walks through the unique beauty of Mauritian forests, and make sure to keep a lookout for the endemic Mauritian Flying Fox!
