What to do in Mauritius?
The best moments in life are often the simplest ones:
Apart from lying on the beach, swimming, snorkeling right in front of your apartment, why not discuss with a local fisherman to go on a tour with him or to get fresh fish for a delicious diner which may be even prepared by an onsite cook? Our team may help you with it all.
If you enjoy a more adventurous holidays, go to Blue Water Diving Centre in Trou aux Biches, one of the first and most serious Independent Diving Centre funded in 1987. We always go there to dive with our kids and friends. Mauritius is also a wonderful place for Kite surf and the closest spots from us are Cap Malheureux and Anse la Raie, Poste Lafayette, less frequented than the South West.
From Grand Baie apart from being able to shop in shopping Centre, local market and luxurious boutiques, you will be able to go sailing on a catamaran for the day usually with a very joyful crew. Direction Ilôt Gabriel or Ile Plate for the day with BBQ on board or on the beach depending on the companies chosen. As soon as you arrive, you will be able to snorkel and swim amongst an amazing diversity of fishes of all sizes and colours. Truly a great day for both adults and kids.
But Mauritius is not only about sea, there is a lot to see and do inland too. Here are a few close by suggestions:
L’Aventure du Sucre is a gem of a museum settled in an old factory explaining the intimate tie between Mauritius and Sugar cane and its restaurant is a Must. It is located very close to the beautiful "must see" Pamplemousses Botanical Garden. Not far from there, you will also be able to visit Le Chateau de la Bourdonnais a 19th Century beautifully restored Mansion. Take time to stroll through its garden and orchards. The Chateau has a distillery as well as a restaurant.
Port Louis fascinating busy town and its colourful Chinese Quarter, its market, its Cathedral St Louis, its 19th century Jummah Mosque and colonial mansions in St Georges and St Louis St.
