Are you contemplating where to go for your next holiday?
If you like the idea of platinum beaches, azure seas, swaying palm trees and wonderful hotels with excellent service, then Mauritius is the place for you.
Divers and snorkelers will adore the coral reefs that surround the coast line. An organised excursion to the protected Blue Bay marine park could well reward visitors with even more great sightings.
Let’s not forget that Mauritius is a tropical island and much of its interior is covered with lush rainforest. Organised treks and hikes can be arranged – the Black River National Park in the south of the island being amongst one of the more favoured areas for such activities.
Mauritius is also an ideal destination for family holidays. Many hotels have children’s clubs and facilities that cater for different age groups. Le Victoria is a property that we recommend highly for families.
In addition, there is a crocodile park on the island and nature trails will invariably lead to meetings with giant tortoises, macaque monkeys as well as our snappy friends, the crocs.
Le Victoria is deal for families
The trade winds on the east side of the island is not only the perfect place for watersport enthusiasts, but also it is also one of the best locations for spotting whales, sharks and dolphins. A day out that all of the family will enjoy.
Golfers are very well catered for on the island with currently eight 18-hole and five 9-hole courses available, each offering the golfing visitor a unique experience. For those who prefer to have golf on their doorstep each day, the Paradis Hotel and Golf Club is one of a few great places to stay.
Mauritius has been described as “Paradise” by many. So where better to consider for taking your vows? It is also the perfect place to relax on honeymoon.
Most hotels offer great deals for weddings and honeymoons. Just imagine the setting… golden, sandy beaches, swaying palm trees, sometimes a backdrop of tropical mountain scenery and a warm climate where everybody can wear cool cotton or linen….
A perfect wedding & honeymoon destination
The fabulous sunsets, particularly on the west coast of the island bring everyday to a wonderful close, especially for the romantics amongst us!

Mauritius is a great twin centre destination. After a busy itinerary in South Africa, you can be relaxing on a wonderful, tropical beach within a few hours as the flights are frequent and on average 3-4 hours in duration.
There are direct services to the island from London, however those closer to larger regional airports may benefit from using the excellent services of Emirates. Routing through Dubai offers a perfect opportunity to combine a few days city stay with the beaches of Mauritius.
