Almost a cartoon creation of what paradise should look like, Mauritius offers much more than just beauty – even though that beauty is enough to satiate pretty much anyone’s appetite.

"'Wow’ just doesn’t cover it, as you’ll find when taking in these perfect stretches of powder sand lapped by all shades of blue."

With world-class hotels offering the best service in the Indian Ocean and renowned gastronomy as well as top spas and golf, Mauritius also offers a lot more to do than many other tropical islands, with trekking, mountain climbing and ecotourism playgrounds just for starters.

And with the rousing beat of séga music, the infectious party spirit of the locals, signature sunny days, the world's third-largest coral reef surrounding a turquoise lagoon and silky-blonde sandy beaches, you soon understand why Mauritius really is so many people's idea of heaven on earth and a small chunk of paradise that’s crammed with something for absolutely everyone.

Creating special moments

  1. The Great Outdoors

    The Great Outdoors

    Venture out of town, away from the beaches and into the forests of Black River Gorges National Park – home to 300 species of flowering plants – for a bit of take-your-breath-away nature. It does get busy during high season though.

  2. Kite-Surfing

    Kite-Surfing

    The surfing in Mauritius is outstanding, with the best (and quietest) places hidden behind Morne Brabant, which is itself one of the most arresting sights on the island. And of all the spots, One Eye is probably its most fêted.

  3. Local Gems

    Local Gems

    Pick up some bargains at the regular markets, in either Curepipe or Quatre Bornes. The former also offers a little local geological gem: a mini-volcanic crater. But be warned, it can rain a lot here – so do take a brolly!
