Reasons to Visit
There is no escaping the fact that Mauritius boasts some of the world’s most perfect beaches. From Grand Baie in the north to Flic en Flac in the west and Belle Mare in the south, you will find silky white sand and warm blue ocean.
Most hotels in Mauritius offer diving and snorkelling excursions to the coral reefs that fringe the island. Here you will find a wide variety of colourful reef fish and keep your eyes open for dolphins, turtles and whales.
For those who enjoy a spot of retail therapy, trips can be organised to the capital Port Louis where there is a wide range of shops selling everything from local handicrafts to designer jewellery.
Mauritius is the ideal destination for those searching for rest and relaxation and many head there in search of a little beach time after an active safari elsewhere. The beaches are beautiful and spa treatments out of this world.
Mauritius is a watersport enthusiasts’ paradise with many hotels offering complimentary non-motorised water activities such as kayaking, windsurfing and hobie cat sailing. Waterskiing, catamaran sailing and deep sea fishing can also be organised.

The Oberoi Mauritius is stylish, private and a very peaceful hotel to stay at. The rooms are very cool and fresh in a lovely style and the hotel has a good layout.
Mauritius is part of the Mascarene Archipelago, where a number of lush volcanic islands can be seen rearing dramatically out of the Indian Ocean. A central plateau rises gently some 600 metres to mark the islands highest point, while the coastline is almost entirely fringed by coral reefs - just perfect for diving.
