Mauritius Holidays

Why choose Mauritius as a holiday destination? What is so appealing about this small island in the middle of the Indian Ocean that tourists are willing to spend hours in a cramped aeroplane just to have a short holiday there? The answers are numerous and would certainly differ from person to person but below are just a few of the most common reasons to choose Mauritius for your holidays.

The Mauritius paradise beach Pointe d’Esny

In Pointe d’Esny, located in the south east coast of Mauritius, you’ll find the beach of your dreams! Relax on the white sandy beach and take a dip in the turquoise water of the Indian Ocean. As there are mainly private residences and villas on the beach you will be able to find tranquility and recreation there. The small paradise has to be shared with only a few other guests.

Mauritius Honeymoon

To me, nothing seemed quite so passé as planning a honeymoon in Mauritius.  When I first visited the island, romance was the last thing on my mind and I was determined to cut through the gloss of the travel brochures and find the ‘real’ Mauritius which I was sure existed beyond the impossibly photogenic sunsets and beaches.  Alas, as Burns so neatly put it, the best laid plans of mice and men...

Mauritius Airport

Not all beaches in Mauritius require a long drive from the Sir Seewoosagur Ramgoolam International Airport.  Mere minutes away are the stunning white sand beaches of Blue Bay and Pointe D’Esny in the beautiful district of Plaisance.  With a variety of villas and luxury apartments to choose from, and some of the best snorkelling in the country, these are dream locations for those on a short stop over in Mauritius and are ideal places to unwind and recover from the jet-lag of a long flight.

La Preneuse Beach

Tucked away on the west coast of Mauritius, away from the hustle and bustle of the tourist capital, Pointe aux Canonniers, is the white sand gem known as La Preneuse beach.  The warm, clear blue water, the coral reef and the unforgettable sight of Le Morne Brabant, the world heritage sight and monument to slavery, rising majestically out of the sea, make this beach one of the most visually spectacular on the island.

Mauritius - Demystifying the Myth of the South East Coast

In popularly held opinion, the south east coast of Mauritius is the ostracised sibling. Holiday makers and tourists flock joyfully to the sun-washed beaches and warm lagoon waters of the north, west and south of the island but shun the east. This bias, however, proves to be totally unfounded and this article could equally well be entitled Demistifying the Mists of the South East Coast.

Easter Holidays Mauritius

Although this is not traditionally a period of grand celebration and festivities, Easter is generally a fantastic time to visit Mauritius. As it does not follow the civil calendar, the date of Easter is not fixed: it is the first Sunday after the Paschal Full Moon, following the vernal equinox of the northern hemisphere, and generally falls between the twenty-second of March and the twenty-fifth of April. In these two months, the humidity on the island drops, cyclones become a thing of the past and the sun shines brighter than ever.

Summer Holidays Mauritius

The European summer holidays coincide with the winter and spring months in Mauritius. Although this sounds like a chilly reception awaits, nothing could be further from the truth. The average temperature during the winter is 24ºC, with the sea temperature dropping from the summer high of 29°C to about 20°C. Winter also heralds a welcome drop in humidity and although there can be moderate winds buffeting the east coast, compared to the Mediterranean they are negligible.

School Holidays Mauritius

Mauritius, that small, beautiful island in the Indian Ocean, is the perfect location for a family holiday. With the safe and gentle waters of the lagoon and the fine, white sandy beaches, what could be safer for children? The obvious attraction of the sea, however, is not the only reason to visit the island of Mauritius with children. The suitability of the weather during the long, European summer holidays, the hospitality of the people and the huge number of different activities available make this one of the most perfect destinations in the world.

Christmas Holidays Mauritius

If you’re dreaming of a white Christmas but don’t much fancy the inevitable freezing temperatures which are inseparable from a snowy landscape, why not try the dazzling white sand beaches of Mauritius instead? Sunshine, sand and the cool clear waters of the encircling lagoon will make your festive season one to remember.

New Year’s Eve Mauritius

Traditional New Year celebrations in Mauritius start on New Year’s Eve, the thirty-first of December and, in as much, echo traditional celebrations of the Gregorian calendar the world over. If, when you think of Mauritius, you generally imagine an exotic destination, balmy summer evenings, bright, vibrant colours and music which enters your very soul and, if this is how you imagine the New Year’s celebrations in Mauritius, you are not far wrong.

Burnout – Mauritius will help you to enjoy life again

Those who are suffering need to do something, specifically for their comfort and their road to recovery. A combination of relaxation, good food and exercise can be the solution to enjoying life again. You might call it a health retreat. Without a doubt, if you are no longer able to enjoy your leisure time, or have noticed that work is demanding too much of you, then you should take a break and try to forget your responsibilities.
Of course, there are other ways to relax. But why not just come to Mauritius ?

Mauritius as a bonus? That should be incentive enough

Many companies have started to introduce bonuses. At the end of the year they work out who has made the most sales, who has introduced the most innovative ideas within the company, and who has shown the most commitment. The bonus should not only be recognition for their good work, but should also serve as an incentive to produce similar promising results the following year. Some bonuses are salary increases, some are one-off presents but it’s becoming more common that employees are sent on holiday as a bonus.

Mauritius Emblem

One emblem is definitely the DODO. The Dodo is a bird that lived a few thousand years ago and is now extinct. It lived on the islands in the Indian Ocean. You’ll find figures of the flightless bird (which measures just under 1 m tall) in souvenir shops, displayed as window decorations or as a statue. Researchers suspect that the dodo became extinct because pets ate the dodo eggs. Today the dodo is seen in films such as Alice in Wonderland.

Mauritius Golf

Along with tourism and the export of sugar cane, golf has become one of the top sources of income for Mauritius.  For such a small island there are an astonishingly high number of golf courses dotted all over the island, ranging from the Mashie course at the Shandrani Hotel in the south east of the island to the Héritage Golf and Spa Resort in Bel Ombre.  But without a doubt, three of the most well known and enjoyable courses are the Ile Aux Cerfs course, the Anahita Golf course and the Tamarina Golf course, all of which are eighteen holes.

Domaine de Bel Ombre

Situated on the south coast of Mauritius, Le Domaine de Bel Ombre lies nestled between a breathtaking lagoon and the striking, volcanic mountains of the island. With several deluxe resorts, two outstanding hotels – the Heritage Awali and Heritage Le Telfair Golf and Spa – a championship eighteen-hole golf course with a par three nine-hole course, a rambling 3500 acre nature reserve and a nineteenth century château, Le Domaine leaves little to be desired.
