We propose starting your vacation in the highlands, where you’ll enjoy a genuine Mauritian experience and majestic nature. Spend the day acclimatising and enjoying the sights with a beverage.
Enjoy excursions and treks into the adjacent rainforest to spot unusual flora and species in this World Wildlife Society protected region, and enjoy coastal views and stunning hilly landscape from above.
Hiking, swimming, and visiting Chamarel hamlet in Black River Gorges National Park. With a private vehicle and guide, you may personalise the day’s journey to your interests. Start the day in Black River Gorges National Park to hike among the colourful flora, experience views of the extinct volcano Trou-Aux-Cerfs, and swim at the thunderous Charmel waterfall before admiring the ochre, orange, red, and purple soil.
The day tour includes lunch and rum tasting at Rhumerie de Chamarel. Today you’ll see there’s more to Mauritius than the beach.
After your excursion, it’s time to hit the beach – Mauritius is recognized for its sun, sea, and sand. You’ll be picked up from your hotel and taken an hour and a half north to the island’s nicest beach resorts. Once you’re settled in, relax with an afternoon in the sand.
Apply sunscreen and obtain a holiday glow over the next two days. You’ll have plenty of time to swim and read between sunbathing sessions. This is an excellent place to snorkel, and most hotels offer free watersports. In the evenings, enjoy a sunset cocktail and creole food.
Spend the day off-route. You’ll tour some of the island’s most typical settlements, where you’ll meet brilliant craftsmen and locals enjoying gato piment (Mauritian chili cakes), samoussas (a local variation of the Indian samosa), and dall pouri (fried bread). You’ll also tour a fruit agricultural plantation and Tamarind Falls. After exploring, a local will give you a handmade family lunch and the afternoon is spent finding the island’s most stunning views and sceneries.
