Family Holidays to Mauritius

It may be a very popular honeymoon destination, but Mauritius is also very well-equipped for family holidays. With frequent flights from most major UK airports, plus some of the world’s best child-friendly resorts, Mauritius is quickly making its way on to the bucket lists of people who want a relaxing family holiday. The island’s calm waters and powder-soft beaches are ideal for young children or toddlers to potter around, making sandcastles and splashing in the sea. And you’ll have plenty of choice when it comes to accommodation. Mauritius has everything from budget-friendly beach hotels to ultra-luxurious resorts. If you really want to treat yourself, why not book a beach villa or a private suite? Many of the luxury options in Mauritius have their own pools or hot tubs, so you can have the ultimate family holiday in paradise. 

Why is Mauritius great for Families?

 The best thing about going to Mauritius on a family holiday is the sheer amount of activities you’ll be able to try – not to mention the never ending beach options. It can be hard to tear yourself away from Mauritius’ pearly sands and clear waters but, if you manage it, you might be surprised by what you find. Take the kids zip-lining through tropical jungle, go on a hike to tumbling waterfalls and steep-sided gorges, and be amazed by the natural phenomenon of Mauritius’ multicoloured earth. Of course, if you’d prefer to spend the whole time relaxing, Travelbag can help you find your perfect family resort. Play with the kids on your hotel’s private beach, chill out by the pool, and enjoy delicious gourmet dining by the sea. 

Things to do in Mauritius

Beach Time

 You can’t go to Mauritius on a family holiday without spending some quality time together on a picture-perfect beach. Belle Mare, Ile aux Cerfs and Flic-en-Flac regularly make it on to lists of the world’s best beaches but, let’s be honest, all the beaches in Mauritius are stunning. And, thanks to the island’s incredible range of luxurious beachside resorts and private villas, it’s very easy to wander straight from your room to the sand. But when should you go? Although Mauritius technically has two seasons – summer and winter – there’s very little difference in temperature between the two. There’s never a bad time to go to Mauritius on a family holiday, but it’s worth bearing in mind that January, February and March are the wettest months of the year. 

Underwater Mauritius

Thanks to its Indian Ocean postcode, Mauritius has a tropical climate and warm seas – which means there’s also a huge variety of marine life. See it all for yourself by going out to sea on a snorkelling boat trip. Or, why not take the kids on an exciting underwater submarine safari? They’ll be able to peek out of the portholes and see an exciting array of coral and multi-coloured fish – it’s the perfect option for toddlers and younger children, if they’re not confident swimmers. And children over the age of five can do an ‘undersea walk’. They simply pop on a special helmet which allows them to breathe underwater, as they walk along the seafloor. They’ll be able to see and feed wild zebrafish and other creatures. Or, get up early and head out on dolphin-watching tip. 

A Taste of Adventure

Mauritius has a seemingly never-ending list of exciting activities for families to enjoy. If your family is full of thrill-seekers, this is definitely the destination for you. You could easily spend an entire week out on the water, trying various water sport activities. Many resorts offer free snorkelling and non-motorised water sport equipment, so it’s easy for you to get out there and try something new. Lots of resorts also offer water-skiing, kite-surfing and jet skiing. Or, for something completely different, go paragliding and enjoy a bird’s-eye view of the island below. Back on the ground, you’ll find plenty of adrenaline-pumping activities like quad biking and zip-lining. As a lot of these activities tend to be better suited to teenagers and adults, you’ll find that a lot of the resorts have professionally-run kids' clubs, providing all-day activities and games.
