Flights to Mauritius

It’s worth catching a flight to Mauritius for the luxury hotel resorts alone. With plenty of leisure and activities on site – from swimming pools to spas, gyms and dive centres – the temptation would be to stay within the four walls. However, to do so would be to miss out on all the fun Mauritius has to offer, from a day at the Champ de Mars racecourse, to hanging out with the locals and relaxing on the beach.

Port Louis is the bustling centre of shopping and dining, where a lot of hidden gems lie waiting to be discovered. When it comes to food, the island boasts an incredible mix of Indian, Chinese, French and African influences. Add in the fertile soil of the islands and you have an abundance of fresh produce, not to mention the sublime seafood. From fine silver-service dining to a low-key shack serving cheap but delicious street food, each meal is an adventure. Don't forget to try the local dishes too, such as the famous Mauritian delicacy dholl puri, a warm, flat bread with a savoury filling.

And when you've had your fill, there is Sega dancing to experience – a traditional dance that’s usually performed for tourists. This is where you might find some of the original instruments such as the ravane, a wooden hoop covered with a strip of stretched goatskin.

Ultimately, though, the call of the beach in Mauritius will be too hard to resist. Your choices are plentiful and the white sands and blue sea will leave you in no doubt that there's such a thing as paradise on Earth.

Catch a race at Champ de Mars

Built in 1812, the Champ de Mars racecourse is one of the oldest in the world. You'll get to try authentic Mauritian snacks and mingle with the locals. Race season is late March to early December, with events staged almost every week.

Visit Maison Eureka

Housed in a former colonial house from the 1800s, a short tour of the Maison Eureka will give you an insight into Mauritian life in the early 19th century. Meals are prepared in the colonial kitchens, adding a sense of authenticity to the experience. If the weather's nice, walk to the nearby waterfalls.

There’s nothing like exploring a beautiful destination on horseback. Equestre De Riambel is the best equestrian centre in Mauritius. It accommodates all standards of riders, even if you're a complete novice. You can ride your horse along the beach and even swim with them.

Take to the beach

Whether you want the romantic white sand beaches of Île aux Cerfs, or the high-octane water sports to be found at Grand Baie, there is a beach for everyone in Mauritius. A good option for families is Trou aux Biches with its shallow waters and protective reefs. Don’t forget your camera.

Explore Black River Gorges National Park

This beautiful park has forests, heathland, waterfalls and an abundance of native wildlife. No matter what your fitness level is, you'll be able to experience the landscape, and it's refreshing to see a side of Mauritius that's away from the beach. Tour companies such as Mauritius Attractions can provide an expert guide and arrange a picnic at the end of your hike.

Central Flacq Market (Street food)

Mauritians take their breakfast habits from the French so light pastries are everywhere. That said, a mid-morning snack is always welcome. Head for the Central Flacq Market, where stalls are set up selling dholl puri – these light pancakes are a Mauritian staple, having been introduced by north Indian immigrants.
