Discover


 

Port Louis

Situated on the north-west coast, Port Louis is the business and administrative capital of Mauritius. It quickly quiets down after office hours, allowing visitors to enjoy a night out along the famous Le Caudan Waterfront. Head for the bustling Central Market or Champ de Mars, the oldest racecourse in the Indian Ocean region. Other attractions worth a visit include the Mauritius Photography Museum, the Blue Penny Museum, the Aapravasi Ghat World Heritage Site and the Citadel of Port Louis.

 

The North Coast

If you like to party to the sound of good music, Grand Baie is the best place to be. Although it has a variety of restaurants and discos, the north isn’t only about nightlife. The area boasts some of island’s best-loved sights, including the charming red-roofed church that overlooks the lagoon at Cap Malheureux. Also visit Goodlands Village, Chez Tante Athalie restaurant and Château de Labourdonnais.

 

The West and South West Coast

Off Tamarin Bay or Flic en Flac, heading in the direction of Île aux Benitiers, you can see dolphins that come to these waters to rest and breed. The Le Morne Mountain, is also in this region, as well as some luxurious hotels known for offering a variety of watersports. Slightly inland, in the hills around Chamarel, you can learn about rum production at the distillery that bears the name of the village.

 

The South and South East Coast

The south reveals an entirely different landscape from the rest of the island, one typified by high cliffs. These are created where the protective barrier of coral reef that surrounds Mauritius falls away on the seabed, leaving the coastline exposed to the Indian Ocean. Further round the coastline, heading westwards, are an array of beautiful beaches and top-rated hotels and resorts in up-andcoming areas such as Bel Ombre.

 

The East Coast

A coastline comprised of exquisite coves and emerald lagoons, permanently enhanced by a cool sea breeze, life goes by at a slow pace in the east – whether you’re a member of the fishing community or a holidaymaker. Situated between the mountains and the sea, the east is characterised by charming little villages with poetic names like Petite Julie, Mare d’Australia and Queen Victoria. It’s also home to some of the country’s best beaches, including Belle Mare, where you will want to spend hours basking in the sun. Make sure to visit the picturesque La Vallée de Ferney Forest and Wildlife Reserve.

 

Inland and Central Plateau

In Quatre Bornes, head for the local market if you want to do some bargain hunting. In Curepipe, where it’s generally cooler than elsewhere, try visiting the botanical gardens. In the early evening the gardens of the Plaza – the municipal theatre of the town of Rose Hill – fill up with families who come to relax and enjoy an ice cream. This is a heart-warming sight definitely worth beholding! Vacoas is most renowned for its Gymkhana Golf Club, the oldest in the southern hemisphere. Make sure to visit the Trou aux Cerfs, a dormant volcano crater. From the crater, you have a 360-degree view of the town of Curepipe and the coastal plains.

When to go

 

Mauritius has only two seasons, with minimal differences between them, making it a perfect year-round destination. The most pleasant times to visit the island are from April to June and September to December.

Temperatures are cooler during this season and prevailing winds tend to blow over the island from the east and south-east directions. This is the best season for surfing – especially June to August.
