Explore golden beaches, verdant rainforest and colourful colonial towns. Witness exotic wildlife that calls this nation home. Enter a melting pot of culture and experience it in the cuisine.


Many head to Mauritius for idyllic beachside relaxation and luxury. It provides exactly that and so much more.

The coast offers the archetypal paradise. Leave footprints on white sandy beaches, dive into warm azure water and find dappled shade under verdant palm trees. The island is home to some of the finest resorts in the Indian Ocean so find yourself a sun lounger and enjoy being waited on hand and foot.

If you can bear to leave the coast, there’s plenty to explore inland. Mauritius is a haven for wildlife, with over a hundred species of birds finding a home in the rainforest canopy. Encounter giant tortoises ambling through the foliage while magnificent orchids break up the expanse of green.

Of course, much of the adventure lies off the coast too. The surrounding waters are teeming with coral and marine life so diving or snorkelling is a must. Explore atmospheric wrecks and swim alongside gliding turtles and colourful lionfish.

Mauritius has a diverse blend of cultures and nowhere is it more apparent than the food. Borrowing from French, African, Indian and Asian cuisine, you can find yourself dining on unique creole dishes and fiery fish vindaye (the Mauritian vindaloo).

When to go

You’ll find a tropical climate all year round in Mauritius so it’s pretty much a destination for any month. There is a slight risk of cyclones from January to March and this period also brings the highest temperatures and humidity levels. The autumn and spring months are best for diving and combine high temperatures with fewer tourists.
