Where To Visit In Mauritius

Everyone has heard of Mauritius: a paradise island with white sand beaches and clear, warm waters that are just waiting for you to dive in. However, a question that many visitors are faced with before arriving on the island is where they should visit in Mauritius. While each part of this isle offers beautiful scenery and plenty to do, the different areas each have their own distinct flavour and activities on offer. Never fear though; we have compiled a list of some of the best spots to visit in Mauritius, as well as what to do there.

Port Louis

A trip to Mauritius often begins with a visit to the capital, Port Louis. Forget everything you know about capital cities, as this is a wonderfully easy-going and relaxed city to begin your exploration of the island. Take a tour of the historical centre of the city and visit the Place d’Armes, where you’ll see the main government buildings surrounded by rows of palm trees. If you feel like learning a bit more about the island’s history, head over to the Natural History Museum, where you can see the famed dodo, or the Blue Penny to learn about the culture and history of the region. A trip to Port Louis wouldn’t be complete without visiting bustling Chinatown for some delicious food and fun shopping opportunities.

Grand Baie

A small seaside town and the main tourist hotspot on the island, Grand Baie is the ideal destination for sun seekers and beach lovers visiting Mauritius. The small town has plenty to do, with a great offering of restaurants and shops where you can pick up traditional crafts to take home with you as souvenirs. What’s more, the beaches here are among the best on the island, and water sports centres operate all along the coastline, so you can try your hand at sailing, water skiing or snorkelling.

Le Morne

Get away from it all and head down to the south-west of the island where you’ll find Le Morne. This part of the island is well-known for water sports, with great winds and beautiful beaches like none you have ever seen before. The peninsula was declared a world heritage site by UNESCO in 2008 and is home to an immense variety of endemic species of flora and fauna. We recommend heading up to the summit of Morne Brabant for the best views of the island.

Black River Gorges National Park

While you might picture yourself spending the whole holiday on the beach when you visit Mauritius, the internal areas of the island have a lot to offer too. The Black River Gorges National Park is a beautiful location where you can set off on hiking trails that wind around mountainsides and through lush tropical forests. Keep your eyes out for wildlife and rare plants as you explore this untouched paradise.
