Mauritius is the most exotic and famous island for lovers of land and crystal waters south of the Indian Ocean. Crystal turquoise beaches, wild natural landscapes of unparalleled beauty, waterfalls, lakes, and extreme marine sports cannot fail to move even the “most difficult” traveler. The plane of travel experiences has just landed in Mauritius and is ready to spread its wings to know all the secrets of the island.
The pier of Mahebourg and its exceptional beauty
Walk to The New Mahebourg Waterfront pier and travel back in time to local history while gazing at the turquoise waters. The waterfront is considered an ideal place for those who are lovers of long walks by the sea. Do not miss the view of the island “Mouchoir Rouge” at the end of the waterfront, a sight that will amaze you. Explore the Maritime Museum and learn more about the epic battle that took place in this area. See the Bataille de la Passe monument dedicated to the memory of those who died in the battle.
Starting with the Ile aux Aigrettes island
An excellent place to visit in Saint Mauritius is Ile aux Aigrettes. This islet was constructed from an old limestone coral reef partially covered by sand and soil. It has international recognition because many of the plants found in its virgin soil do not grow anywhere else in the world. It was declared a nature reserve in 1965.
Admire the wealth of rare birds, such as the Hawk and the pink dove. The giant tortoise Aldabra and the Green Gecko Phelsuma will take you to a very different world from what you have lived in so far. You can buy a complete relaxation package and luxury with a boat trip. In the Blue Bay Marine Park, you will discover every aspect of Ile Aux Aigrettes, the lighthouse, and the dives. Visit the islet of Ile aux Cerfs and capture the majestic waterfalls of Grouse. Mauritius is indeed an ornament to humanity.
Explore the tourist Grand Bay
Just like the locals, we should head to Grand Bay in Mauritius. It is considered the Mecca of the whole island as you will find fairytale beaches, countless restaurants, bars, discos, and more opportunities for shopping and activities. Enjoy swimming in emerald waters, and live the experience of sunrise and sunset. Be photographed on white sands adorned with palm trees and shells.
Visit the unique beaches of Pereybere, Grand Baie, La Cuvette, and Mont Choisy, and of course, test your adrenaline in Mauritius with Scuba Diving. Get close to marine life by visiting the Aquarium, Holt’s Rock, Coral Garden, Poison Reef, and Whale Rock, which are some of the diving sites in Grand Bay. Colorful reefs and a unique variety of fish will excite you. If you are still afraid of diving, you can try Solar Seawalk. A shallow water experience that even non-swimmers can enjoy.
Chamarel is a must-see
Another fantastic landscape in Mauritius that deserves your attention is Chamarel. The area is one of the most photographed spots on the beautiful Indian Ocean island. Blue, green, red, and yellow colors have illuminated Chamarel, which is believed to be the result of volcanic ash erosion—the only place in the world with seven-colored wonders on the ground.
Nearby, you will find Chamarel Waterfalls that rise like majestic monsters and show the abundance of plant life. After your escape to the wonders of Nature, stop at Chamarel village and enjoy the local cuisine, watching the sunset over Le Morne. Natural beauty is an integral part of Mauritius.
Mahebourg and the locals’ culture
The trip to Mauritius will only be complete if you visit the relatively developed southern part of the island. Most of the southern part does not have a beach, a decisive reason that it remains a “hidden gem” in Mauritius. Mahebourg is considered the most untouched part of the island, perfect for those who want to experience the local culture.
