Plenty activities for the whole family


Mauritius Island is not only about white beaches and blue Ocean but also about sports activities ! Thanks to its really diversified landscapes, you can enjoy some walks in the mountains but also cycling tours, trekking and horse riding. If you're looking for strong sensations, try surfing, kitesurfing or rafting. The whole family can also experience their first scuba dive in the lagoon's hot and transparent water to safely meet more than 600 species of fishes.

Throughout the year...


That's Mauritius biggest strength, its hot weather all year round. Here, you can enjoy the sun on the beach and escape sunburns by lying under the giant palm trees. Politically speaking, the island is really safe with no conflict at all during the previous decades and, you don't need any specific treatment or vaccine to travel there. Just take your passport and your flying tickets to enjoy its several wonders...

Kids Friendly hotels


On Mauritius, you will find some both luxurious and Kids Friendly Hotels where your children will enjoy several activities as theater, dance lessons, water sports, tennis, painting, initiation to local's music... While they will be busy with their Kids Clubs, you will enjoy some treatments and massages at your Hotel's Spa.

Focus on the excursions


You surely don't want to spend all your stay on the beach ! Don't forget about excursions as the "Vanille Réserve des Mascareignes", a giant nature park with plenty of palm trees, banana trees, giant bamboos and wild animals such as turtles, bats, iguanas, chameleons... If you need other ideas, go straight to the botanical garden, the "Les Pailles" area, the "Tamarin" dolphins park, the "Chamarel" Adventure Park, Casela World of Adventures or "Domaine de l'Etoile". Don't forget to get some more ideas on the MyMauritius smartphone application !
