Mauritius has so much to offer. Whether you wish to explore or just relax on the beach, the warmth of the Mauritian people will make you feel welcome and the unrivalled hospitality and service plus many world class hotels only adding to the choices of holidays in Mauritius available.

The North coast of Mauritius is famous for water sports such as waterskiing, windsurfing and sailing during the day and its trendy bars and restaurants at Grand Baie in the evening.

The East coast of Mauritius has some of the best beaches on the island such as Belle Mare that seems to stretch endlessly along the coast. Scuba diving is particularly special here with more varied underwater life and old shipwrecks to explore.

The West, as you would expect, enjoys some fabulous sunsets which make the perfect back drop to a lazy evening with a tropical cocktail. Surfing is also popular at Tamarin as are dolphin encounters.

The South coast is known for its high cliffs and rugged beauty with attractions such as Frederica Nature Reserve where jeep safaris, nature treks and quad biking are available.
