Mauritius Tourism & Travel Guide

The island nation of Mauritius sits on the Indian Ocean, off the southeast coast of the African continent. Think crimson sunsets and rolling waves in an erstwhile French colony, the small glamourous island of Mauritius is an adventure enthusiast’s haven to its north. The Rodrigues Island, and the Agalega and Cargados Garayos islands also plays a major part in Mauritius tourism. From kite and windsurfing to a plethora of watersports, tourists will never run out of options on their Mauritius holiday. The Belle Mare beach of Mauritius, fringed by coconut palms and casuarina trees is where the tourists flock to, for snorkelling. The village of Grand Baie, crowded by charming beach cafes and glitzy resorts is another much loved destination. On your Mauritius trip, you should also head to Black River Gorge, and raft through its dense forests or hire an underwater scooter and get up-close and personal with the local marine life. Drop by to say hello to the cheetahs and lions of the Casela Nature Park. Mauritius’ flourishing tourism can also be credited to its diverse wildlife that boasts of spot monkeys, boars and the kestrel falcon which is sustained by the Domaine de Chasseur, a nature reserve in the southeastern Anse Jonchee Hills. End your Mauritius tour with a morning trek up to the Le Morne Mountain that fans over the shimmering Le Morne beach.
