Being much more than just a beautiful beach destination, Mauritius offers all types of sports and leisure-activities to satisfy even the most sophisticated visitor!
Activities encompass all kinds of water activities, from boat tours, whale- and dolphin watching to snorkeling, scuba-diving, kayaking and deep sea fishing.
Lands sports include hiking, mountaineering, canyoning, horse riding, mountain-and quad-biking. Those willing to take off and see the island from high up, might go for a zip lining or skydiving adventure.
But there’s still much more to this tiny island! Mauritius thrives on a rich cultural and historical heritage and as a result, this bubbling melting pot has not only temples, churches, museums and historical attractions, but also a cuisine that brings reflections of India, China, France and many more countries and cultures onto the palate. Visitors can enjoy haute cuisine in exclusive restaurants, enjoy island specialties in small family “restos” throughout the island or even sample specialties sold by street vendors; food in Mauritius is super- delicious and safe to enjoy anywhere.
Independent-minded travellers might opt for an island tour by bus and a visit of the many public parks or beaches. Families with children can benefit from leisure parks with many child-appropriate attractions. Those in for a mix of culture-nature and great food might want to choose from a range of specifically tailored sustainable day tours to gain interesting insights into the island’s unique nature, dazzling landscapes, meet people, and learn a few words in the local patois “Creole”.
