Mauritius is one of the most popular holiday destinations on earth where almost all holiday makers would want to be if they can afford it. There is plenty to see and do when one embarks on holidays to Mauritius. The natural beauty of the beaches, sunshine and sea beckons one and all at anytime of the year.


There are so many places to explore and discover in so many different ways in Mauritius. The idyllic island can be explored by boat or on horseback; trekking and biking or 4x4 driving are other favorite means of explorations while holidaying at Mauritius. There are plenty of quad and mountain bicycles to challenge those who want to enjoy the beautiful sights leisurely.

Tourists can get a great view of the land and sea by checking out the island and sea by boat. There are plenty of islets around to check out with secluded bays and coves; abundant rich coral reefs draw many snorkelers and divers to these waters.

There are plenty of tourist attractions which one can enjoy when on any holiday to Mauritius; these can be visited at leisure on one’s own time or through ground arrangements by professional tour or holiday operators.

Racecourse wonder 

One of the famous attractions in Mauritius is the Champ de Mars racecourse which is located at Mauritius Turf Club. It was established in 1812; this makes it the oldest horse-racing facility in the world. Tourists would enjoy the unobstructed view at Crown Lodge, a specially designed private steward suite, to view the race at the finishing line as well as the paddock. It is at the VIP balcony and the Club’s president’s lodge. There are races every Saturday from April to December.

Nature Parks

Nature lovers would love the vast span of nature parks available which are homes to many varieties of flora and fauna. Birds of over 140 species find their haven here. One can view exotic and rare species such as the Mauritian Pink Pigeon. Tourists can enjoy some adventurous activities like zip lining, quad biking and trekking.

One of the renowned nature parks is the National Park of Black River Gorges which is 6574 hectares and established in 1994. Native forests are protected with unique flora and fauna.

Unique landscape

All Mauritius holidays would not be complete without viewing the unique soil types on Mauritius. The chamarel color of the soil in Mauritius is unlike anywhere else in the world. The soil is formed in an undulating land in contrasting layers of red, blue, yellow and green.
