Why we love Mauritius
The latest insight from our time spent exploring Mauritius.
Mauritius’ popularity originates from its stunning beaches concentrated in the glamorous east and popular north, and on those truly pristine offshore islands, reached by catamaran. It really is the ideal destination to sit back, relax and gaze out onto the vast Indian Ocean with a good book.
Water sports & Golf
Water sports are a popular option here, including kite-surfing, parasailing, kayaking and windsurfing. Golf is also en vogue here too with dozens of championship standard courses, including the Ernie Els designed Anahita, Bernhard Langer designed Ile aux Cerfs and Gary Player designed Saint Geran.
At first thought Mauritius conjures images of gently swaying palm trees, whiter than white beaches, crystal clear waters and luxury resorts. While completely true there is much more to be found on this fantastic island with Indian temples, colonial houses, botanical gardens and wonderful wildlife. Remnants of the British colonial era linger such as driving on the left and copious tea plantations. There is a touch of the exotic though that runs throughout Mauritius with dhal puri stalls at markets and hip-wiggling sega performances abound. Visitors are spoilt for choice without even knowing it and those willing to explore are rewarded handsomely.

Mauritius East Coast
A haven for those searching for solitude, the East Coast is more sparsely populated but home to some of the most luxurious beach resorts in the world. The resorts on this coast are few and far between and the area is all the better for it with some of the country’s best beaches. Luxury and exclusivity is what springs to mind for those choosing to stay in the area. While staying, no trip to the East Coast would be complete without a visit to the stunning island of ‘Ile aux Cerfs’ located in the lagoon of ‘Trou d’eau Douce’. Home to perhaps the world’s most beautiful beaches and endless snorkelling spots, ‘Ile aux Cerfs’ is an absolute must. A world away from the more populated areas of Mauritius, the veritable peace and calm found here on the East Coast in absolute rarity. It is important to note that the breeze which is so welcome on the East Coast during the hot and humid months can become a problem during the windier season from June through to September, trade winds affect this un-sheltered side of the island and can impact your experience to the extent the beach is a no go area.
Mauritius West Coast
Offering beautiful beaches and an interesting coastline, the West Coast is a particularly good option over the English Summer when trade winds can affect the beaches of the East Coast. The West coast remains sheltered and calm, there’s a range of luxury resorts to choose from – if you are looking for a couples only experience or somewhere with more of a family friendly appeal then do contact our team of specialists to find out more. If you are looking to do a bit more exploring, to get to grips with Mauritius and venture out of your resort then the West Coast could be a good option for you. There are many hotels, bars and restaurants up and down the coast, if you don’t want to you can easily get out and about.
Mauritius North Coast
The busiest area of Mauritius, the North Coast still retains a strong sense of identity through the hidden gems that remain untouched by development in the area. Situated here is Grand Baie, which has evolved from a sleepy fishing village into a thriving destination with a small town feel. Boasting some of the island’s best nightlife and restaurants, you can feel the bustling energy running throughout. For a little less hustle and bustle look no further than the discreet Rivière du Rempart region, home to isolated coves, luxurious spas and only a handful of high end resorts. It’s fairly easy to see why it’s become an increasingly popular choice for honeymooners and couples. The North Coast possesses many understated gems awaiting visitors who are willing to explore. Heading inland are swathes of sugar-cane fields known as Pamplemousses sloping gently towards the sea. Particular highlights here are the fantastic Sir Seewoosagur Ramgoolam Botanical Gardens and the enduringly popular L’Aventure du Sucre – a museum dedicated to Mauritius’ traditional colonial export. In a nutshell the North Coast has a little bit of everything that one looks for during their stay.
Mauritius South Coast
With a wilder and more rugged character than its counterparts, the South Coast plays host to some incredibly dramatic scenery. Less developed with fewer swimming beaches, there is a sense of authenticity here that cannot be found anywhere else on the island - many locals agree that this is the closest to the true Mauritius of old. Mahébourg provides a complete contrast to the modern developments occurring in other areas of the island, showcasing an honest perspective of local life. Lush green vegetation matched with jagged cliffs taper off at the shimmering reefs in Blue Bay making for some stunning views. At Pointe d’Esny one of the most beautiful stretches of beach on the entire island awaits you. For those wanting to escape the relative bustle of the Grand Baie and the West Coast, visitors can lose themselves in the genuine tranquillity that exists here on the South Coast. Le Morne plays host to arguably the most dramatic setting on the entire island. Formed of a 3km stretch of sand, the reef-protected lagoon and stunning golf course all sit handsomely at the foot of an imposing mountain. Mauritius’ longest and most famous beach, Flic en Flac, lies south of the island’s capital, Port Louis. Home to shops, restaurants and bars ideally situated for swimming, snorkelling and diving, Flic en Flac has developed from a small fishing village to being a thriving hub for visitors.
Looking further inland where some of Mauritius’ best sights, smells and sounds can be discovered, Chamarel is the go-to destination for our guests. The possibilities are fairly endless here with horse-riding, hiking and mountain biking trails heading through thick jungle-like vegetation running alongside stunning waterfalls. The birdlife on show here within the Black River Gorges National Park continues to throw up surprises including pink pigeons and green parrots all to be discovered from well-placed viewpoints. Chamarel also plays host to the famous striped sand dunes at the ‘Seven Coloured Earth’ which are quite simply a feast for the eyes. Chamarel really presents a rich alternative to those who are not content to dwell on the beach for their entire stay.
