Stroll through the small villages and markets in the heart of cities and get to know its multicultural population, as well as its crafts and gastronomy inspired by cuisine from all around the world. Here, we speak French, English and Creole. All religious and ethnic groups that contribute to making Mauritius a true melting pot co-exist in complete harmony. Mauritius is ideal for family holidays offering a quiet space with no proven health risks and which has enjoyed political stability for over 50 years. The climate is tropical, therefore warm, which is perfect for engaging in sports or exploration activities under pleasant conditions all year long. Golf is a sure bet in Mauritius, as is scuba diving or big-game fishing. Honeymoon trips or destination weddings have also known a boost in popularity on this heavenly island. No doubt that Mauritius is indeed a small pearl of the Indian Ocean!
The north – for all tastes
Renowned for the seaside resort of Grand Baie, the northern region is a bustling tourist hotspot. It is said to be home to some of the most beautiful beaches on the island such as Pereybere or Trou aux Biches, but also to sugarcane fields and untouched villages in Roches Noires or Poudre d’Or. The Pamplemousses Botanical Garden and the Red Roof Church of Cap Malheureux in the north of the island are also picture-postcard venues popular with visitors.
Lovers of the beach and idleness, Mauritius is made for you! Never-ending stretches of sugar white sand are simply mesmerising and the temperatures of the lagoon waters should be to your taste for a few dives among multicoloured fish. If you are tempted by snorkelling or diving, many spots await you. Swimsuit, towel, sunscreen and parasol are all you need for delicious moments of relaxation!
