Mauritius: an unforgettable experience

Prepare to be enchanted, enjoy personalized attention and uplift your soul – a visit to Mauritius is sure to make you feel like you belong to the chosen few.

Often referred to as the ‘Star of the Indian Ocean’, Mauritius has safe beaches, calm seas and a mild tropical climate. This, combined with legendary Mauritian hospitality, makes this one of the most sought after vacation destinations in the world.

The contrast of a multitude of colors and flavors, the island nestled in a turquoise sea is an oasis of peace and tranquility. A melting pot where past and present gently mingle, Mauritius offers the traveler a multitude of things to do (besides relaxing on the beach). Mauritius is a true paradise for those who want to enjoy the sea or simply sunbathe.

You can tour the French city of Port Luis, the capital of Mauritius; visit The Harbour, La Citadelle, a hilltop stone fortress that offers a splendid view of Port Louis and, to this day, protects Mauritius; the Natural History Museum with the national bird of Mauritius, the Dodo; shopping at Port Louis Market, a riot of color with countless bric-a-brac for sale; shop for affordable French cosmetics and perfumes at the duty-free shops at the Continental Shopping Arcade. Stroll through the enchanting Pamplemousses Gardens, which boast one of the world’s largest collections of exotic plants, including giant water lilies and the Talipot palm. An excursion to Ile aux Cerfs, a small island with the most beautiful beach in Mauritius and a paradise for water sports is a must. Embark on an exciting underwater ride and get an intimate view of marine life.

In the south of Mauritius, visit the Floreal Knitwear Factory Shop, Troux aux Cerfs, an extinct volcanic crater covered in vegetation with a breathtaking view, and the Grand Bassin, one of the island’s two natural lakes and a pilgrimage site for Mauritians from Hindu faith, cozy in the crater of an extinct volcano. Take in splendid views of the Black River Gorges, a natural sanctuary for the island’s flora and fauna, and the mesmerizing Chamarel Dunes, the ‘land of seven colors’, in contrasting layers of blue, green, red and yellow earth tones caused due to the weathering of volcanic rocks.
