Friendly, inviting and relentlessly beautiful – welcome to Mauritius!
Beaches, temples, lagoons, rainforests, reefs, waterfalls, shopping, dining… Mauritius has it all. For the adventurous and active, the array of options is endless; from scuba diving and snorkelling to sailing and deep sea fishing, or water-skiing and parasailing, kite surfing and yoga, quad biking and horse riding – you name it, you’ll find it in Mauritius.
The island is blessed with a tropical climate and is a fantastic year-round destination. Temperatures range from the low to mid-20s˚C in the cooler months (April to October), up to the late 20s and early 30s˚C during the gorgeous summer months from November to March.
Mauritius has an impressive array of activities available – from exhilarating zip lining to cultural temple visits. Of course, it’s also very important to factor in plenty of time to soak up the sun. If you are looking for more adventure than spending time on the beach, this is what is in store for you.
Deep Sea Fishing – Mauritius is a paradise for deep sea fishing and holds several world fishing records. The ocean is 70m deep, 1km away from the coast and species which can be found in these waters include the blue or black marlin, all types of sharks, yellow tuna, the Bonitos, barracuda and more. Huge fish like the Blue Marlin roam the seas and hunt around the island from November to April. Fishing boats can be hired from almost all hotels.
Spa & Wellbeing – If you’re looking for some pampering be sure to visit the Spa found at most hotels where you can relax in the capable hands of experts and allow yourself to be carried away by your senses (you deserve it)!
Golf – What could be more enjoyable than being on holiday on a dream island whilst having the opportunity to improve your golf skills? Mauritius is home to some excellent golf courses including Heritage Golf Club at Bel Ombre, Ile Aux Cerfs Golf Club, Tamarina, the Links and Legends courses at Belle Mare Plage and Four Seasons Golf Club at Anahita.
Shopping – The Island’s reputation as a shopping paradise is enhanced by the diversity and quality of shopping opportunities. From sophisticated shopping centres to small craft shops and bustling market stalls, there is something for everyone. Whatever happens, you can’t leave Mauritius without a sega outfit and at least one frangipani hair clip!
Scuba Diving & Snorkelling – Mauritius is fantastic for diving all year round. A barrier reef encircles almost the entire island which creates a shallow lagoon reef, making it particularly good diving for beginners. On the other side of the barrier reef, caverns and crevasses as well as a number of ship wrecks will delight the more experienced diver.
Nightlife – Most hotels in Mauritius offer nightly entertainment but for those seeking a little more action, there is lots of fun to be had on the island. The night scene of Mauritius entices with beach clubs, nightclubs, casinos, bars & pubs with live music, and even laid back lounges.
