The essentials

 

Next door to Reunion, Mauritius is a destination packed with charm.

 

Its main asset lies in the beauty of its fine sandy beaches descending into turquoise waters warm all year round. A destination highly prized by families or couples seeking sun and a relaxed lifestyle, Mauritius also offers great variety in terms of accommodation. From luxury hotels to an authentic guest room with a local, every traveller can find ideal accommodation conditions, and discover a culture rich in traditions.

 

Among the essential sights, we can recommend Grand Baie, the village of Triolet, Chamarel , Chinatown, Flacq , Souillac, as well as “Jardin de Pamplemousse” gardens and the Curepipe Botanical Garden.


Gastronomy

 

It is the great diversity and originality of some dishes that are the force behind this relatively little-known cuisine. Indian and Creole cooking is based on spicy sauces, marinated for hours.

 

You can also try out very fine fruits on Mauritius. The melons, watermelons, mandarins, green lemons, mangoes, lychees, papayas, guavas, carambolas, sugar apples (green skinned fruit with big oval seeds and delicious flesh), custard apples, pomegranates (or passion fruit), Cytherea fruit, tamarinds or red coconuts are quite simply exceptional.


Climate


Mauritius enjoys a tropical climate, tempered by south-east trade winds.

 

 

The period from October to December is the most appreciated (27°C on average). July, August and September are ideal for fans of spring temperatures
