More about Mauritius

Mauritius is blessed with miles of beautiful beaches. One of the longest stretches is at Belle Mare - the spotless white sands seem to go on forever. Le Morne and Tamarin with their waterfalls are lovely, and popular for surfing. Flic en Flac's sands are fringed with casuarina trees, and in the southeast, Blue Bay is a popular bathing spot. Don't miss the little cove of Pereybere, a fine place for a dip.

Golf is a great game wherever you play it, but with the backdrop of a paradise island, you'll be transported to golfing heaven. The island's courses offer private pro lessons and you can hire clubs, balls and caddies. Golf courses are available at Belle Mare Plage, Le Telfair, Tamassa and Le Touessrok - recently voted one of the 10 best courses in the world


Longing for a tropical wonderland? Be charmed by Pamplemousses' Giant Lily ponds and trees full of fruit bats. Be inspired by the lakes brimming with giant turtles and fish. You'll remember it as a beautiful dream. But trust us, it's all real.


Maison Eureka is a preserved colonial wooden mansion high up in the centre of the island close to Mokoa. Experience spine-tingling views of the Mauritian mountain ranges, before having a very British cuppa in the tearoom.

Slip on your favourite swimwear. The beaches at Ile aux Cerfs are some of the best in the world. And when you finish soaking up the rays (and admiring glances) enjoy a Banana Colada in one of the beachfront bars.
