Mauritius is a tropical destination that is popular all year round thanks to its warm climate and stunning beaches. There are picturesque colonial houses scattered around the island that not only symbolize the history of the island but also add to the charm. Luxurious hotels and botanical gardens are extremely popular with the tourists, who seek refuge in them from everyday life.
A holiday on the island can be on the more expensive side, but it is worth every penny of your hard earned money. Even though the island itself is pretty small, you won’t run out of fun things to do because there are so many activities to choose from. Here are some things you can’t miss when visiting Mauritius.
We recommend that you put Scuba diving on the very top of your list because this is an experience you’re never going to forget. Imagine crystal clear blue waters that are bordered with white powdery beaches. You’ll be with a team of highly trained scuba diving instructors who will escort you into a different world, deep within the ocean. Instructors are trained to answer every question patiently, and they keep safety first when training potential scuba divers.
The Mystik LifeStyle Hotel is extremely popular amongst the tourists who visit the island. The hotel has a seafront view and gives you access to the beautiful beach of Mont Choisy. A pricier alternative is the Four Seasons Resort Mauritius, but with this hotel you’re getting exactly what you’re paying for. The Four Seasons Resort Mauritius has a secret beach (limited to its guests), free gold sessions, spa, four stunning swimming pools, and amazing restaurants. The hotel is ideal for anyone who is dreaming of a luxury holiday because it oozes luxury and relaxation.
In the Southeast of Mauritius there are tons of outdoorsy activities like the very popular historical cycling tour. Elctro-Bike Discovery takes small groups over the southeast of island and shows all the major landmarks. Don’t worry if cycling is not your thing because the bikes are electric and you won’t use up a lot of energy while cycling. The group visits some of the popular beaches, old colonial landmarks, sugarcane plantations, and small local villages.
The wildest and most beautiful landscapes are supposed to be on the south of the island. You’ll be feasting your eyes on white sandy beaches with never ending steep cliffs, rocky shores, sugarcane fields basking in the sun and mountainous terrains. The entire island is Instagram heaven, and you’ll be spoilt for choice because every angle is beautiful. Expect to spam your friends Instagram feeds with endless landscape shots.
You can forget your diet at home and indulge in the local cuisine. There is a fusion of Indian, Chinese and Mauritian Cuisine to choose from. The food at the street restaurants is just as good as the ones served in the fancy ones.
