What To Pack For A Mauritius Holiday

If you are thinking about heading off to the tropical island of Mauritius for a holiday, you are probably feeling very excited about the prospect. However, you might be wondering what to bring with you in terms of clothing and other accessories. Knowing what clothing is acceptable for Mauritius luxury holidays is important. While it is entirely acceptable to wander around in a bikini while at a resort, for example, it may not be so appropriate to head outside and mingle with the locals wearing the same beachwear. Below is a very brief guide on what to bring for your holiday to this wonderful Indian Ocean destination. Beachwear

If you are planning to spend all day every day at the beach or by the pool, you will need little more than a suitcase filled with swimming wear, and if you are female, a few sarongs to cover your shoulders when the sun is at its most intense. You will also need plenty of sunscreen to ensure protection from the intense rays.

Leaving the Resort

When travelling to Mauritius, it would be understandable if you went with the idea of spending all your days lazing by the pool or on one of the spectacular beaches. After all, everything you could possibly want from a luxury holiday is at your fingertips at these five-star resorts. But to really make the most of Mauritius luxury holidays, it is best to get out and about to see more of this fabulous island nation.

Mauritius has a tropical climate, so temperatures are fairly constant all year round. Daytime temperatures tend to hover around 26-28oC, so lightweight and loose clothing is ideal for travelling. Some people prefer to wear layers that they can remove or add to as appropriate.

If you are visiting any religious sites, it is important to wear appropriate clothing. You will need to make sure your shoulders are covered and you may be expected to wear long trousers. Ask your tour guide or a holiday rep beforehand to ensure that your attire does not offend any locals.

Night Time Clothing

Most resorts in Mauritius provide some form of night time entertainment for their guests. In the vast majority of resorts, if not all of them, beachwear is not encouraged when dining, while at certain times of the year, the evenings may be cooler than you expect. Casual wear is acceptable but again opt for lightweight loose clothing to ensure comfort. You might want to bring a light jacket or cardigan for evening wear.


Sandals and flipflops are preferable to high heels in this part of the world, especially where restaurants and other eateries are located near the beach. You will also want to take sunhats and sunglasses for daytime wear, as well as some mosquito repellent to help avoid being bitten.
