My ideal visit to Mauritius

So I have never been lucky enough to visit this beautiful island, with tiffany blue Ocean and white sand beaches, offering a mix of activities, diverse culture and outstanding beaches and resorts. I started to think about what I could do if I were to visit…

 You can get direct flight from Heathrow with British Airways or Mauritius airline, and takes 12 hours. When I arrive I would check in to my luxury hotel (for arguments sake let’s just say I arrive at mid day) ditch my bags, and head straight to the beach, feeling a tad jet lagged I would lay in the sun watching the clear turquoise sea crash against the reef that rings the island, until the sun sets. I imagine that to be quite phenomenal!  Ids then put on my glad rags and go for a romantic dinner in the hotels luxury restaurant.

 After a good night’s rest I would be ready for some adventure, I think id enjoy swimming with wild dolphins this can be done in the Tamarin on the west coast. Here you can also take surf lessons. The best places for diving however are Aux Bitches, Peyeybere and Grand Baie. Other water activities that Mauritius offers are Glass bottom boat trips, big game fishing, kite surfing and water skiing. I personally would love to have ago at all of these but maybe not all in the same day!

 On my second day I think I might fancy visiting destinations on the island beyond the resort. I would like to visit the multi cultural capital Port Louis which offers street sellers and shops and vibrant markets. Id visit Mauritius’s natural history museum, and Champ de Mars, which is one of the oldest race courses in the southern hemisphere. I would then head to the small village of Triolet for some history the small town is home to the biggest Hindu temple on the island.

 I would also like to visit the black Gorges National Park; this is located in the west part of Mauritius. There is a vast amount of wild life to be seen, including 1500 birds of over 150 species, giant turtles and mammals such as lions and monkeys.

 Basically there is a lot you can see and do in Mauritius, it is a versatile destination and will suit most people’s preferences. offer excellent back ground knowledge and advice from experienced sales staff, make an enquiry now and let them help make your dream holiday in Mauritius a reality.
