With its unheralded wildlife spots, palm-fringed beaches, picturesque ocean views and dramatic diving sites, Mauritius is without doubt the perfect beach getaway.

Along its white-sanded coastal stretches wrapped between a multitude of tiny isles, rare birds, giant tortoises and dolphins gather in most spectacular sceneries. Despite its small perimeter, the main island offers a broad array of genuine activities.

Further inland, hiking trails wind through the lush vegetation of Ebony Forest Chamarel, brimming with thunderous waterfalls and inky lagoons.

Embedded in the Black River Gorge National Park, the area in the southwest of the island is home to a very particular natural phenomenon, the iridescent sand dunes of the Seven Coloured Earths.

Mauritius’ excellent road conditions are ideal for scenic car journeys, which reveal the cultural and architectural results of a rich tapestry of Indian, French, African and Chinese influences.

Finally, immerse yourself in the outstanding Creole cuisine and sophisticated national rum distillery, located in the very heart of Chamarel’s fertile valleys.
