Mauritius is all about celebrating moments… Romantic moments, quiet moments alone or special moments with your kids. The island of Mauritius is a stunning holiday destination that will allow you to forget – even if it is just for a few days – all the craziness you left behind. Whether you are a couple, a solo traveller or have a family - live in the moment and experience Mauritius for yourself.

Things to do as a Family in Mauritius

We all know the stresses that come with bringing up kids, so relaxing is top of mind on a holiday with the kids! Mauritius offers fantastic holiday clubs. Many of the resorts in Mauritius offer brilliant holiday clubs that ensure both kids and their parents are entertained during their visit to Mauritius. Activities are supervised by adults trained to not only ensure your children’s safety, but also to make sure they have fun. There are different clubs that cater to kids of all ages, so there is something for everyone. This doesn't mean that you have to send your kids away every day to make sure they have fun though. There are numerous activities on the island that you and your kids will love doing together. Here are some ideas:

Visiting the Mauritius Aquarium

Kids will love the aquarium and in Mauritius the sea life is amazing, so if you are not up for diving or snorkelling for an underwater spectacular, then the aquarium will keep you and the kids entertained all day. 


You don't have to lie on the beach all day either. Bring out the family’s competitive side and spend a few hours go-cart racing.

Zip Line across the “Field of Colours”

Mauritius is home to a spectacular 500m long Zip line experience over the “Domaine des Couleurs” (directly translated as "field of colours"). This Zip Line in Mauritius offers travellers a breathtaking view of the amazing colours found in nature on the island. It is a safe and fun experience for the whole family.

Swim with Dolphins

Get out together as a family for an experience of a lifetime swimming with Dolphins. The stories and memories you create will last a lifetime!

Water Sports

Kite-surfing, jet-skiing and windsurfing are only a few of the exciting sports that you can try out together. Have fun!

Mauritius as a Romantic getaway

Mauritius is really the perfect romantic getaway destination! It is the idyllic because of the swaying palm trees, sandy beaches and clear waters. Have the honeymoon experience you’ve always dreamed of with cocktails on the beach at sunset and romantic dinners for two. Romance is however only part of the couples experience in Mauritius. You could hire a car or a motorbike and go exploring! Take a picnic basket and enjoy the excitement of discovering a quiet beach or a beautiful waterfall together.If you are looking for something a little more exciting then why not go sky-diving? Finally, end your day with a sunset cruise or simply a glass of wine on your hotel balcony.

Mauritius is great for solo travellers too

Finding a beach holiday destination that works for a solo getaway can be tricky. You can very easily find yourself awkwardly navigating French-kissing couples on their honeymoon or busy families with busy kids… Understandably an ideal holiday for a solo traveller is quite different from couples and families. You just need to make sure you get a Flight Centre travel expert to help you choose the right resort and plan the perfect itinerary. Apart from all the activities are on offer in Mauritius like zip lining, skydiving and water sports, travelling to Mauritius alone will not disappoint! Whether it’s silence and solitude you need, with early morning yoga on the beach or if you prefer lights, fireworks and 24-hour parties - Mauritius is the perfect holiday destination for a solo getaway.
