Mauritius is about more than just beautiful beaches and sparkling lagoons. Explore the island and discover delicious local delicacies, exhilarating water sports and charming towns.
Mauritius offers some amazing shopping experiences, from air conditioned shopping centres featuring duty free stores to outdoor markets and street traders selling hand-made crafts. Discover the sights, sounds and smells of vegetable, herb and spice markets in Port Louis, pick up a traditional Mauritian souvenir or try a spot of bartering at the Caudan craft market.
Nestled in the hillside plantations of Chamarel, in the south west of Mauritius, and surrounded by acres of sugarcane plantations, the eco-friendly Rhumerie de Chamarel provides a behind the scenes look at the rum making process. Sugarcane plants are handpicked and fermented before being distilled into the unique Mauritian rum that can be sampled and purchased at the end of the tour.
Enjoy a day of fun and adventure in Ile aux Cerfs, a picturesque island off the east coast of Mauritius that is famous for its excellent snorkelling conditions thanks to its crystal clear waters and colourful coral reef teeming with marine life. Spend the day on board a catamaran or visit one of the many water sports kiosks and try water skiing, parasailing or underwater sea-walking.
