Mauritius holiday ideas accommodation places to go when to visit mauritius map reviews


Sitting in the middle of the Indian Ocean about 2000km off the south east coast of Africa, Mauritius is a good all year round option with a nice warm climate. 

Mauritius has a lot to offer everyone and is popular for honeymoons and family holidays alike. Water sports are popular and the island is surrounded by reefs. There is plenty to explore inland too with tropical forests, hills and hiking, colourful markets and a tasty food culture! Little wonder that Mauritius was voted 'World's Leading Island Destination' in the 2009 World Travel Awards.  

Beaches are definitely the big draw card of Mauritius! Clear, warm waters and beautiful sandy beaches make this a tropical idyll. There are large lagoons lined with sand, perfect for enjoying swimming or just sun bathing. There are endless opportunities for water sports, diving and snorkelling.

The North has many water sports such as waterskiing, windsurfing, sailing and deep sea fishing. The West coast has lovely sunsets, great surfing and shallow waters close to shore. The East is wilder and has many nature reserves and shady coves and lagoons. The South East has dramatic high cliffs creating a craggy coastline as the waters break through the reefs from the open sea.
