On a Mauritius tour, lush blue lagoons and swaying coconut palms on golden beaches are taken for granted. Add in whale-watching excursions and swimming with a playful pod of dolphins off the west coast, and you’ve got yourself an unbeatable holiday.
This idyllic tropical island in the southwest Indian Ocean, 500 miles off the coast of Madagascar, is a holiday paradise. And, because Vibes Group UK is the dream merchant, let us conjure up a fantastic Mauritius itinerary that suits your whims and needs.
Swim to Pointe aux Piments on the northwest coast for a reef teeming with vibrant corals and multicoloured fish. One day, pack a picnic and go to a deserted beach surrounded by a turquoise lagoon. On another day, explore the bustling markets of the capital, Port Louis, to get a taste of local life. Spring for water sports—there are numerous options for both light and strenuous activities. If none of these sounds appealing, perhaps some quiet time on a sunlounger followed by a round of spa pampering will suffice?
Mauritius is a cultural melting pot with cuisines from India, Africa, Asia, and France. Join Sega dancers on the beach as they sway to the pulsating rhythm of traditional instruments to embrace this island’s distinct way of life.
