Mauritius Holidays

An idyllic paradise of white sand beaches, sprawling rainforests and sparkling blue lagoons; Mauritius boasts a whole new world of natural beauty. Our selection of hotel and flight package holidays in Mauritius features luxurious accommodation in some of the best locations across the island and boast world-class golf courses, spa and wellness centres and fine dining – plus some incredible kids’ clubs!

Those staying in resorts near Port Louis, the island's vibrant capital, will discover that it's the ideal spot for exploring and provides plenty of places to eat and indulge in a little retail therapy. Be sure to stop by the vibrant Kaylasson Temple during your visit to the city, boasting magnificent sculptures and painted in a mesmerising colour palette. You'll also find the Champs de Mars horse-racing course nearby, as well as a delightful botanical garden created in the 18th century to explore.

However, if you prefer to do nothing more than don your swimwear and top up your sun cream then then we recommend a resort along the west coast, where you'll find plenty of lively public beaches should you choose to venture beyond your hotel. Tamarin Bay is a popular destination for dolphin spotting in the morning - or if you're staying in the north of the island in the Grand Baie area, stop by La Cuvette beach which is perfect for families to swim.

Plus we are ATOL Protected for your peace of mind.

Travel Tips & Advice for Holidays in Mauritius

Mauritius Activities

From surfing to paragliding, Mauritius holidays offer the perfect excuse to try something new. Sign up for cave sea kayaking on the west coast to spot the famous Albion Lighthouse or pull on a diving helmet and immerse yourself in the wonders of the ocean with an underwater sea walk. You'll find locations in Port Louis and Grand Baie offering this incredible experience. For those looking to break up their holiday with a little thrill-seeking and adventure, consider a ziplining experience in Casela Park located near Flic en Flac beach or sign up for a half-day canyoning trip in the beautiful Tamarind Falls on the south-west of the island.

Mauritius Food & Drink

Specialising in an array of seafood dishes, the traditional cuisine on offer in Mauritius is a delight to the taste buds. From flavoursome crab curries served with rice and packed with garlic to delectably sweet coconut cakes, there’s a variety of sweet and savoury options that you simply must try. Head into the capital of Port Louis and visit Central Market, where you’ll be able to shop like a local and pick up some fresh fruit and drinks. Imagine sitting on one of the many sandy beaches while biting into tangy pineapple or enjoying a crisp cold beer after a trip to this market. What could be better?

Mauritius Attractions

If you crave adventure, head to Black River Gorges National Park. The rugged mountain terrain is covered in wild forestry, hosting a stunning mix of exotic flora and native fauna. Explore the waterfalls and vistas within this wild park with a guided hike. If you choose one of our resorts in the Belle Mare area, consider a trip to Bras d'Eau National Park with a huge forested nature reserve to explore. Those looking for a cultural experience should look into a trip to Ganga Talao - also known as Grand Bassin. This is a sacred lake overlooked by several beautiful Hindu temples. Ganga Talao Hall is one of the most impressive of these, with ornate statues of the Hindu gods standing 108 feet high guarding the entrance.
