Enjoy the virtual jungle of beach umbrellas on the endless, stunning scenic beaches with glimmering sands that lace the crystal clear blue waters whose under waters are bursting with rainbow colored living creatures best explored via underwater scooters. Engage in para-skiing or water skiing in the inviting warm waters or enjoy a game of golf at the top-notch golf courses in the island.

The splendid colonial styled architecture and market places in the capital city of Port Louis makes it an amiable place for tourists. The floral-faunal haven of the Royal Botanical Gardens located in Pamplemousses, the Casela Nature Park and Black River Gorges National Park are a nature seeker’s perfect haunt. The museum of L’Adventure Du Sucre that is set on a past sugar factory or the textile museum situated in Floreal provide for some interesting viewing.

Retail therapy is best enjoyed in places like Curepipe and Quatre Bornes. South-west of Curepipe is the biggest lake of Mauritius, the Mare aux Vacoas reservoir with its pristine settings. The splendour of the Tamarin Falls and the Mare Longue are the penultimate visit sights. The Grand Bassin Crater Lake is highly revered amongst Hindus in the area.

The relatively secluded East Mauritius has the most spectacular beach with wide-ranging options of high faring deluxe hotels in the Belle Mare region or the pocket-friendly hotels near Trou d’Eau. The Ile aux Cerfs located near Trou d’Eau is ideal to undertake some fine boating expedition.

If one wants to steer clear from crowds, then one can venture beyond north in the direction of Cap Malheureux where one can explore the tantalising wilderness. Except in a certain areas in Grand Gaube, one is bound to find shortage of lodging options here till you reach the east.

If the dual combo of sun-soaked sandy beaches and euphoric mountain backdrops are your thing, then one should undertake a trip to West Mauritius. The splendid mountain vistas and the swiftly emerging tourist hot spot, the Flic en Flac Town is amongst the top visited spots. The Le Morne Hills have the most amazing multicolored earth display at Chamarel. The views atop the observation tower at La Preneuse and the museum are not to be missed out.

One can find some spectacular beaches along the course down to the scenic Le Morne Peninsula. One can enjoy the dolphins in innate habitat, indulge in fishing at the Grande Riviere Noire or surf the waters at Tamarin.
