Things to do in Mauritius

Mauritius may be best known for its idyllic beaches and flawless coastline, but this Indian Ocean retreat is more than a beach destination. It also offers scenic inland adventures, exhilarating animal encounters and unbeatable golf and spa facilities.

Ideal for beach holidays, you won’t be disappointed by the soft white sands and glistening waters that line the coast. Spend some time out on the water spotting dolphins or snorkel to see what creatures lie beneath the surface. Each of our carefully selected hotels is equipped with spa facilities, so make sure you treat yourself to an invigorating treatment. Sample the finest Mauritian rum on a distillery tour or dine out on local cuisine in Flic en Flac, in the south west. Take in the gorgeous island scenery on a gentle hike or embark on the adventure of a lifetime on an unforgettable safari. Car hire in Mauritius is an easy way to get around, why not spend a few days exploring at your own pace.
