Though Mauritius is blessed with sparkling white sands that shelve into aquamarine waters, it’s much more than a tropical island paradise. Our carefully chosen experiences aim to offer you a local perspective on island life and a deeper insight into Mauritius’s rich, multi-cultural heritage — as well as showing off its natural beauty.
You can sit down to lunch with a Creole family, walk the streets of Port Louis with a local guide or watch the fine art of rum distillation. There are French-colonial homes and botanical gardens to explore, as well as tea and sugar museums that introduce you to the island’s heritage. Active pursuits include hiking through the Chamarel Mountains and learning a new water sport. Or, you could take a leisurely boat trip out along the coast, stopping to snorkel as you go.
