Six reasons to visit Mauritius!

Created by a volcanic eruption eight million years ago, Mauritius is an enchanting, pocket-sized tropical haven, boasting stunning sandy beaches, mountains made for hiking and abundant nature.

While the windsurfing is mindblowing the island also boasts fabulous hotels, top-notch spas and gourmet dining, making it hard to drag yourself away from the sunlounger. But Mauritius is about so much more than sun, sand and sea. The island offers an endless array of natural, active and cultural activities that appeal to every holidaymaker.


The one-time home of the now-extinct dodo bird, Mauritius remains a biodiversity hotspot, where visitors are almost guaranteed glimpses
of rare birds (and the odd wild boar) on hikes to waterfalls and eye-popping views from mountaintops, along with thrills such as mountain biking, zip-lining and abseiling.


Mauritius is a rainbow nation, with local islanders hailing from four continents. Be transported to India at Hindu festivals, to Africa in performances of the hip-wiggling traditional séga dance, and to China, eating steaming boulettes on a street food tour of the capital, Port Louis. French Colonial glamour can be experienced on strolls through lush botanical gardens, lunch on the veranda of heritage houses once owned by sugar barons, and artisanal rum tasting. The British influence is evident in the tea plantations, driving on the left and the widely-spoken English language.


As if this is not enough to convince you to book your Indian Ocean island holiday, here are our top six reasons to go to Mauritius:
  1. Fantastic windsurfing conditions, with flat water, waves and consistent winds!
  2. With direct flights, Mauritius is easy to reach and with only four hours’ time difference, jet-lag free. Air Mauritiusʼ refurbished A340s on the London Heathrow- Mauritius route features new LED ambient mood lighting, more legroom and state-of-the-art inflight entertainment.
  3. It is a tropical safe haven, with no deadly snakes or spiders.
  4. Mauritius is compact and easy to explore by hire car (or mini moke) or by electric bike.
  5. Beyond the beach are temples, botanical gardens and heritage houses, plus nature hikes, eco-parks and swimming with dolphins.
  6. This island’s real treasures are the friendly, hospitable locals, a fusion of French, Indian, Creole and Chinese peoples, and visitors always rave about the service!
