Exploring Mauritius Holidays

Getting Around Mauritius

Mauritius is a small island with excellent roads and highways, making it easy to travel around. It’s a perfect place to base yourself in one location and take day trips to explore the island.

All of our holidays include private, personalized airport greet and transfers to and from your hotel in air conditioned vehicles. We can also arrange all of your excursions via private drivers for the ultimate personalized and stress-free holiday. All of our drivers are english-speaking, extremely knowledgable and  can assist you with any requests.  

Car hire is possible (Mauritians drive on the left side of the road). However, unless you plan to do extensive exploring each day, this may be more hassle than it’s worth.

If you’re staying on the west and north coast, several hotels offer shuttle service to neighboring towns of Flic-en-Flac and Grand Baie (or are conveniently located to local bus service) if you’d like to explore the nearby towns and beaches. Many resorts offer bicycle rentals if you want to explore the lovely terrain and villages around your hotel.   

Port Louis
The bustling capital of Port Louis is located in the north west side of the island. It's lovely waterfront location is the industry center and where you can enjoy the vibrant markets. Everything from veggies, meat and textiles can be found from hundreds of local vendors. More
Grand Baie
This seaside village and large tourist beach is popular for its liveliness both day and night. The beach is ideal for swimming, sailing, and other water sports. The town offers an array of fashion and craft shops as well as discotheques.
Located on the west coast, Flic-en-Flac is one of the island's most popular beaches and offers a lovely seaside village. The town is smaller than Grand Baie, but offers a variety of local cafes, shops and nightlife.
Grand Bassin
This is a definite a 'must see' on the island. The scared lake, also known as Ganga Talao, represents the holy Ganges river of India. It's tucked away in the mountains of the South West surrounded by colourful Hindu temples and gods.

Seven Coloured Earth in Chamarel
This natural phenomenon is a vibrant display of lava oxidation over thousands of years; it’s a brilliant sight of majestic orange and red layered earth. In Chamarel, you can also visit a flowing waterfall and enjoy the agricultural land where sugarcane and pineapples grow on the countryside.
The Legend Golf Course
This 18-hole championship course is home to the "Johnnie Walker Classic" and to the Mauritius Open championship tournaments. It's designed by South African champion, Hugh Baiocchi, and is located along one of the most superb beaches on the island.
