Mauritius: Top Things to Do

mauritius


Mauritius is a famous holiday destination for its golden sands but there is more to the island than just beaches. There are many places to visit including historical French houses, shops, forests and gardens. Here are some of the best things to do.

 

Chamarel Waterfall

At 83 metres, Chamarel is the highest waterfall in Mauritius. The viewing platform is reached by climbing stairs for some holiday photograph opportunities. Combine the trip with a visit to a group of sand dunes known as the “Seven Coloured Earth.” The dunes are made of crushed volcanic rock which cooled at different temperatures into distinct browns, reds and purples.


La Vanille Nature Park

The crocodile is the main attraction here for many, but you can also see giant turtles and bats, monkeys, iguanas and a large collection of insects. Walk through the jungle learning about flora and fauna of the island then sample some delicacies at the Hungry Crocodile restaurant.


Port Louis

Black River Gorges National Park
