Mauritius holidays 2020 & 2021

Travel in times of uncertainty
With practical guidance, our flexibility promise and inspirational tools for travel planning, you can book with confidence with Audley.

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 Creole villages to volcanic mountains.

Dolphins glide and turtles feed in the aquamarine waters of the Indian Ocean surrounding Mauritius. You can snorkel over coral seascapes and, helped by a dramatic ocean drop-off, explore some memorable dive sites. Inland, hiking trails weave through the 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 cosy cafes.
