TOP 5 MAURITIUS HIGHLIGHTS

  1. UNDERWATER TOURS   Everyone knows the beauty of the beaches. Come and see what’s under the water with world class sightings of colourful tropical fish, moray eels and splendid corals. From the sea walk to glass bottomed boats, Mauritius has it all.
  2. PORT LOUIS   The capital city is laid back in every sense. Wander the central market for its food, crafts and herbal teas. Explore some of the old colonial forts or view the Hindi temples and learn more about this colourful country.
  3. TROU AUX CERFS   A 605 m high extinct volcano located in Curepipe and boasting spectacular views. Get a chance to walk around the perimeter after a challenging hike up.
  4. MAURITIUS BOTANICAL GARDEN   Commonly known as the Pamplemousses Botanical Garden. It is the oldest botanical garden in the Southern Hemisphere. View giant tortoises and water lilies.
  5. BLACK RIVER GORGES NATIONAL PARK   These 6,574 hectares protect most of the island’s remaining rainforest, home to diverse wild animals and birds.

TIPS FOR TRAVELING MAURITIUS

CURRENCY   Mauritian Rupee (MUR) is the local currency though US Dollars, Pound sterling and the Euro are widely accepted. South African Rand is also accepted in certain hotels. All major resorts as well as shops and restaurants accept credit cards.

CLIMATE   The climate is subtropical. There is relatively little seasonal variation in temperature. The weather is generally pleasant and sunny. The country has two seasons: a warm humid summer extending from November to April and a relatively cool dry winter from June to September. Temperatures average about 25° C year round.

WHAT TO PACK   Your costume of course! Shorts and t-shirts for the day will suffice. For evenings, especially while dining, a smart casual approach will be fine with perhaps a light sweater for cooler evenings. Don’t forget the sunblock, a hat and comfortable walking shoes should you wish to explore the inland areas.

PEAK HOLIDAY SEASON   Being a year round destination, there’s no wrong or right answer. September to December is generally the best months to visit when the seas are calm and the weather driest. July and December is usually when Mauritius gets the most visitors.
