The top 5 things to see/do in Mauritius

1. Find your way to Port Louis

You shouldn't visit Mauritius without exploring the largest city in Mauritius-Port Louis. One of the remarkable things about Port Louis is the beautiful central market. Here, you will find locally grown and exotic foods, spices, crafts, souvenirs and many other items of interest. If you enjoy arts, you can find your way to the Port Louis Theatre or choose to book a guided tour of the city to make things easier.

2. How about some deep-sea fishing?

While visiting Mauritius, you should consider trying some deep-sea fishing, which is a popular activity on the island. The sea is home to many different fish species, including black and blue marlin, barracuda, sharks and yellow tuna. There is even a Marlin World Cup held annually from February to March. Therefore, if you’re visiting around this time, you can attend and take part in it.

3. Explore the Caudan Waterfront

You can also head over to the Caudan waterfront and meet new people. At the same time, you can enjoy the different street entertainers here and enjoy watching them as you while your afternoon away. Apart from the entertainment, you can visit the wide array of historical buildings, including the Mauritius Natural History Museum and Blue Penny Museum.

4. Check out the local heritage in Mahebourg

Once in Mauritius, you should ensure that you don’t complete your holiday without visiting the south section of Mauritius. Despite being relatively underdeveloped, this area offers a raw feel of Mauritian life. From here, you can enjoy magnificent views of the surrounding landscapes, including the Ile aux Aigrettes. Most parts of Mauritius have some outside influence, but not the south section.

5. Visit Grand Bay

When is the best time to go on holiday in Mauritius?

Mauritius is always buzzing from October all the way to December. However, if you want to visit when visitors are sparse, and hotels are way cheaper, we recommend visiting between April and May. The weather around this time is favourable for many outdoor activities like surfing and kayaking.

Many tourists visiting Mauritius arrive by air via the Sir Seewoosagur Ramgoolam (SSR) International Airport. Flying to Mauritius is the fastest way.

The Voyage Privé travel expert’s opinion on Mauritius

Preskil Island Resort 4*

Mauritius may be a small island, but there is plenty you can do. If you are visiting for a weekend only, you won’t have ample time to explore the delights the island has to offer. Therefore, when you plan to go on holiday to Mauritius, we recommend that you consider a week or two to take in everything Mauritius has to offer. From enjoying the sun and sea to exploring the south section and the island's gastronomy, you will definitely unwind on a memorable holiday in Mauritius.

Enjoy the beautiful scenery and kind climate of Mauritius

As the rain falls from grey skies during the European winter, it can be hard to believe that an island such as Mauritius, with its hospitable weather through 12 months of the year, is only a few hours' flight away. Mauritius is one of the leading destinations in the world for luxury holidays due to its pristine beaches of golden sand, magnificent ocean setting and commitment to an attentive service for guests staying in its resorts. We have a range of handpicked offers covering the most in demand hotels. You are only hours away from a tropical paradise with jaw-dropping ocean side scenery and a raft of holiday activities to enjoy.

From lush green hills to golden sand

Preskil Island Resort 4*

Many travellers would associate Mauritius primarily with its beaches, and although this perception is well founded, the island also possesses a national park, boasting some of the most breathtaking scenery anywhere in the world. Take advantage of the pleasant weather with a hike through the forest covered hills of the Black River Gorges National Park, and gaze down on to the ocean below from the Black River Peak viewpoint, an unmissable photo opportunity that will make you the envy of your friends back home!

The calm, shallow water of the Trou aux Biches beach might make it your number one choice, especially if you are part of a family group. You can snorkel and get a close look at the varied marine life, and even some ship wrecks at Water Lilly.

Don't forget your dose of Mauritian heritage

There are several historical sites worth a visit on your days away from the sun lounger, including Eureka, a colonial French mansion built by one of the island's sugar producers. He certainly had a good eye for design, as a balcony extending around the entire circumference of the property ensures that guests don't overheat during humid times of year. Then there is the old capital of Mahébourg, where the Dutch first disembarked in the late 1500s. There you can have a look around the National History Museum, and dine in one of the many authentic Mauritian restaurants that populate the area.

Whatever the time of year, you can choose from our handpicked range of discounted Mauritius breaks, featuring only the highest quality hotels on the island.
