Mauritius Holidays 2021
Powder-white beaches and volcanic mountain backdrops set the scene on holidays in Mauritius. Combined with luxury resorts, lush forests and multicultural cuisine, welcome to a slice of heaven on earth.
From the colonial capital to colourful reefs and golf courses, Mauritius holidays offer a little bit of everything good. The island nation rests off the southeast coast of Africa and palm-fringed beaches are the top draw. It’s no surprise, therefore, that this is one of the world’s top destinations for honeymoons at plush resorts.
Adventure activities in Mauritius
Dive into sapphire seas to experience abundant marine life, shipwrecks and colourful corals. The island’s mountainous interior is dotted with waterfalls and gorges for hikes through the wilderness. Thrill- seekers launch into canyoning, zip lining and quad biking. A tropical climate ensures year-round warm weather, so any time is a good time to pack your bags for an island adventure.

Your guide to Mauritius holidays
Top 5 things to do in Mauritius
Though Mauritius is a favourite destination for couples escapes, there’s plenty to do for everyone on family holidays and solo sojourns.
- Mauritius is a shopping paradise and the famous Le Caudan Waterfront is the place to indulge. Along with a wide range of stores, you’ll find restaurants, cinemas, a casino and events throughout the year.
- If you love kitesurfing, Le Morne Beach is considered among the top spots in the world. Ride the wind on a backdrop of crystal-clear water and white sands. Don’t forget your snorkel to step straight off the beach and into underwater magic.
- One of the most popular beaches, Flic en Flac is a long stretch lined with restaurants, hotels and shops. Enjoy a range of water sports and shady trees for picnics.
- Just off the east coast of Mauritius, Ile aux Cerfs is encircled by sparkling lagoons and sandy beaches. It’s also the home of an 18-hole championship golf course and plenty of activities.
- If you’re travelling with the family, Pereybere Beach features the safe, shallow waters you’re looking for. While you laze on the white sand, the kids can have fun with pedalos, parasailing and kayaking.
Natural wonders in Mauritius
No matter where you look on holidays in Mauritius, you’ll come face to face with stunning natural beauty.
- The biggest on the island, Black River Gorges National Park is a haven of lush forest, lakes and rolling hills. Take a day trip to spot endangered birds, deer and macaque monkeys while you’re trekking.
- At a peak of 812 metres, Le Pouce Mountain is one of the highest in Mauritius. Hike to the summit through exotic plants for incredible panoramas across the island.
- Chamarel Waterfall plunges 95 metres in a single drop. The mighty rush is fed by three streams and you’ll reach the viewpoint via a scenic trail through dense forest. Take the three-hour trek to the base for a swim.
- A dramatic mountain jutting out into the Indian Ocean, Le Morne Brabant was once used as a shelter by runaway slaves. You can hike to the top of the UNESCO-listed site.
- Take the leafy, raised walkways through the Ebony Forest Reserve and you might just spot native birds, like the Mauritius Bulbul. The exhibition centre highlights natural history across eight million years.
