between paradisal beaches and tropical forests!
Nestled in the heart of the Indian Ocean, Mauritius is like a little paradise.
This volcanic island surrounded by a coral reef has a lot to offer. Heavenly beaches, turquoise waters, secret coves and tropical forests blend with local history and culture to create a truly magical cocktail. The place for a dream vacation!
Visit Port-Louis, the capital
Founded in the 17th century, the capital of Mauritius enjoys a geographical location worthy of the most beautiful postcards, between mountain ranges and a very calm bay. The Caudan seafront is very lively with its shopping center and bars, and offers something opposite of the central Port-Louis market, or the inescapable parade. Further on, Fort Adelaide offers a magnificent view of the city below. Not to be missed!
Escape by boat to Ile aux Cerfs
To restore a sense of calm, Ile aux Cerfs has all the features of an idyllic location. Accessible by boat from the east of Mauritius, this small uninhabited islet has extraordinary landscapes, with sumptuous white sandy beaches and lush vegetation. You will find a certain peace of mind when discovering this wonder located in the heart of the Trou d'Eau Douce lagoon.
Discover the paradisal beaches
Whoever speaks of Mauritius speaks of its enchanting beaches. Do you dream of sinking your feet into hot sand, whilst scanning the horizon and the surrounding coconut trees? Trou-aux-Biches beach is probably the most heavenly place on this little piece of land. With turquoise waters and gorgeous sunsets over the Indian Ocean, other stretches of sand are also in play: Mont Choisy, Blue Bay and its lagoon, Gris-Gris or even the very popular Flic-en-Flac.
Discover Chamarel, the Seven Coloured Earths
Located near Black River, the Chamarel region is the island's main natural interest. Commonly called "The Seven Coloured Earths", this unusual place features earths and dunes whose colors oscillate between red, ocher and purple. Not far away, hidden in the rainforest, is an impressive waterfall falling from over a hundred meters high.
Go on a hike up the Morne Brabant
It's impossible to imagine Mauritius without its famous Morne Brabant! Listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, this imposing 550m high mountain is a delight for hikers with a breathtaking view. Beyond the panorama, Le Morne is steeped in history, since it was a land of exile for many runaway slaves who lived here in small communities.
