Mauritius for everyone

The island of Mauritius is located in the south of the Indian Ocean, 900 km east of Madagascar. This island was uninhabited until the 16th century, then it was a colony of the Portuguese, the Dutch, the French and the British. Now the Republic of Mauritius is an independent state, where beautiful architecture and generous nature remind of its rich colonial past, and incomparable beaches and a huge number of tourist attractions for every taste tell about the happy present. Today we want to tell you that whatever the reason for your vacation, Mauritius will fully satisfy any request.

If the writers wanted to send the heroines of the series “Sex and the City” on vacation, their choice would most likely fall on Mauritius. Spa and Wellness tours to this island are especially popular among tourists from Europe, which in turn encourages SPA centers to compete and improve. By the way, tourists come here not only for massages, but also for plastic surgery, since there are many private clinics in this area in Mauritius. Among other SPA, comprehensive programs in Ayurvedic centers and traditional African and Creole procedures, which use flowers, herbs and natural organic oils of local production, stand out.

What to do after healthy and pleasant body treatments? Of course, go shopping! From Mauritius you need to take the highest quality cashmere and vanilla tea; here you can very profitably buy jewelry with precious stones, their prices are 40% lower than in Europe. Hagglers can indulge their souls at local markets and fairs, the largest of which are held in the cities of Flac, Quatre-Bornes and Goodland.

The gastronomic component will pleasantly complement the girls’ holiday – an abundance of fresh tropical fruits will make the detox program pleasant and easy!

In a man’s company

The tropics are not the most obvious destination for traveling in a group of guys, but don’t rush to the conclusion that Mauritius is definitely losing to Bayern. Local beers Phoenix, Blue Merlin and Black Eagle are unlikely to be tried anywhere else, and Green Island white rum will be high on the list of things you’ll want to bring home. In the Pamplemousses botanical garden, a colonial manor has been restored, when you visit it you can study all the stages of making rum from sugar cane, and, of course, taste it. Gambling is not prohibited in Mauritius, and large hotels operate casinos. By the way, noisy parties with alcohol consumption are much easier to bear in a tropical climate.

If you prefer sports and a healthy lifestyle to partying, Mauritius is a great place to learn surfing or kite surfing. The water temperature does not drop below 22˚C all year round, so all you need are swim shorts and determination, and one of the many kite and surf schools will help you with the rest.

What you can really excitedly tell your friends and colleagues about is fishing in Mauritius. Trolling fishing in the open sea, with salty spray, weathered faces and sea slang, and most importantly – a hefty catch! Even if you have never held a fishing rod in your hands, you can safely count on large tuna, blue marlin, and if you are lucky, you will be able to catch a hammerhead fish.

In addition, Mauritius has a whole team of wedding photographers who can capture the most tender moments of your romantic trip.

With children

During a family vacation in Mauritius, parents will not have to rack their brains over what to do with their child while they work on an even tan. Most hotels have special children’s clubs, swimming pools are equipped with small water slides, and animators look after the kids.

Educational excursions will not leave adults indifferent either: in Mauritius you can meet huge 100-year-old turtles, feed giraffes and play with young lion cubs. On boat trips you’ll be able to spot friendly dolphins and snorkel through vibrant, populous reefs. The most active ones should go to an amusement park with cable cars for riding over the green hills. There are several levels of difficulty, differing in height and speed. There is also a large water amusement park in Mauritius, called Leisure Village.

Of course, it is worth devoting a considerable part of your time to a beach holiday – swimming with children in Mauritius is completely safe, thanks to the barrier reef, the water near the shore is calm and clean, and you can build high and strong castles from coarse sand.

For everyone

At this point we have collected those places on the island of Mauritius that will be of interest to tourists regardless of gender and marital status. First of all, this is the main miracle of the island – the multi-colored sands of Chamarel. The spacious dunes are painted in seven bright colors, and the sand of different colors quickly separates into layers, even if it is mixed properly. Another must-see is the sacred Hindu city of Grand Bassin: a majestic temple stands on the shore of a calm, clear lake, where, according to the stories of local residents, fairies came to swim.

Mauritius will make an indelible impression on those who love outdoor recreation: a huge national park, trekking to the top of a volcano, a series of waterfalls, ylang-ylang plantations – it’s simply impossible to single out the most beautiful corner here. There are also a lot of entertainment related to sports: horseback riding, golf, tennis, cycling, kayaking and paddle boarding, even paragliding.

The last place on our list that is definitely worth seeing in Mauritius is Cap Malheureux,

dubbed “Unfortunate” for its wild, uninhabited landscape with one single old church on the edge of a cliff. This is the best place to acutely feel like a grain of sand in a huge world, tiny, but completely happy!
