Mauritius Holiday Packages

Once a haunt for pirates, Mauritius is now known as a tropical island full of rare wildlife, sandy beaches and luxury hotels. Set before a dramatic mountain backdrop, this is an island for exploring. Indian temples, French colonial architecture, botanical gardens, plentiful water sports and world-class golf courses ensure that your Mauritius holiday has something for everyone. The only remnants of British rule are tea plantations—a bonus for fans of Downton Abbey.

Things to Do in Mauritius

Mauritius holiday deals focus on the north of the island around Grand Baie, which has the greatest concentration of hotels, spas and entertainment. To sample the famous beaches, however, head to Rodrigues Island, a remote holiday spot 650 km east of Mauritius in the Indian Ocean. Measuring only 8 km in width, this tiny island is renowned for its top-notch diving and snorkelling. Rodrigues Island holidays are perfect for ocean lovers and sun worshippers.

When you're ready to take a break from the sun lounger, head west to Cascavelle, where you'll find the Casela Nature & Leisure Park. The Savannah-style eco-adventure park houses an abundance of African wildlife including giraffes, zebras and hippopotamuses, all seen from a safari bus. Feeling brave? Casela gives adventurous visitors the opportunity to walk with lions or ride the longest zip line in the Indian Ocean.

Back in the capital Port Louis, the mosques, churches and Indian temples will give you an idea of just how multicultural Mauritius is. Signal Mountain in Port Louis is a popular and gentle climb, and a great way to see the city at sunset—the perfect photo opportunity for your holiday in Mauritius. Want to see it all? Mauritius car hire from Wotif is the easy, stress-free way to get across this beautiful island.

Shopping, Dining & Nightlife

The Caudan Waterfront in Port Louis Harbour offers the best shopping on the island. With designer labels, duty-free shops and boutiques found alongside artisan rum and craft stores, you'll be sure to find the perfect souvenir. Around the corner, the central bazaar features Indian textiles and sarongs, and you can eat your body weight in local street food.

For life after dark, head for Grand Baie. There are some great bars and clubs packed into this buzzing tourist hotspot, with plenty of beach party entertainment going on at the hotels. The east of the island is catching up fast, however, with a young and vibrant club scene emerging in the Ile aux Cerfs. If you prefer something a little more romantic, check out the candlelit bars in Port Louis Harbour.

Hungry? Mauritians are a fusion of French, Creole, Indian and Chinese peoples, and this eclectic heritage is reflected in their cuisine. You'll find food pretty much anywhere at lunchtime, but you'll need to head for Port Louis or Grand Baie for an evening dining scene. Specialties such as Creole fish rougaille, octopus curry and smoked blue marlin will set your taste buds tingling.
