Mauritius holidays & honeymoons

Plan a tailor-made beach escape or honeymoon in Mauritius, or explore the mountainous interior

Soft sands lead into crystalline waters around a palm-fringed coastline: Mauritius is justifiably esteemed as a beach getaway. Having explored the island in detail, our specialists can tailor a holiday to Mauritius to suit your individual tastes, but our recommendations go well beyond lounging in the sun. We can also suggest ways to experience lesser discovered corners of the island, from fishing villages to volcanic mountains.

Mauritius is an unheralded wildlife hotspot, where rare birds ride the thermals and giant tortoises plod about the forests below. You can snorkel past dolphins and, with a dramatic ocean drop-off, there are some memorable dive sites. Inland, hiking trails weave through the virgin rainforest of the Chamarel Mountains, opening out onto waterfalls and inky lagoons. A rich tapestry of Indian, French, African and Chinese influences have made their way to the island, creating a nuanced culinary identity. And, the streets of Port Louis are flanked by colonial villas, while smaller villages host busy markets and homely cafes.
