Things to Do in Mauritius

Mauritius may be a sleepy island floating in the middle of the Indian Ocean but it's one that also hides a whole world of adventure. Yes, there are fantastic beaches that you could quite easily glue yourself to for the whole time you're on holiday but there are plenty of wild experiences the island harbours for honeymoons, holidays and family getaways, too. From spying waterfalls to playing a round of golf, here are just a handful of activities you can enjoy while on holiday in Mauritius...

Lush adventure
Enjoy thrills amid Mauritius wild interior
The natural drama which erupts from Mauritius' lush interior isn't just for show, it's an adventure playground. If you fancy a few hours (or longer) from the island's spectacular stretches of sand, then there are plenty of thrill-seeking activities waiting to be enjoyed. Walk through pristine forests to cooling waterfalls or hike one of its many mountains for an all-encompassing island panorama. If you want to take the adrenaline factor up a notch, hop on a bike and pedal past glassy lakes, zip along dusty tracks in jade-hued valleys hemmed in by tree-carpeted peaks and soar way above this emerald wonderland on a zip-line. This just scratches the surface – there is so much you can do!

A round (or two) of golf
Enjoy the best courses in the Indian Ocean
If you love nothing more than taking your clubs out for a round of golf, then you're in for a treat in Mauritius. The island's love for the sport stretches right back to 1844, where it's thought to be the third country in the world to be introduced to golf. The love affair has continued ever since, with the island boasting a selection of world-class courses that have been designed by top-level golfers like Bernhard Langer and Ernie Els. Add in the gorgeous scenery surrounding the courses and Mauritius is a stunning place to tee off.

Witness magical marine life
The clear, warm waters which lie off Mauritius are certainly inviting and its pastel-hued reefs offer excellent snorkelling and diving opportunities. A variety of boat trips are other great ways to enjoy its coastline. You can go island-hopping on a catamaran, glide to a sandy islet for a lunch to remember, see pods of dolphins along the west coast or whizz across the water on a speedboat trip that ends with a cocktail at sunset. Whether it's above or below the surface, exploring Mauritius' stunning coastline is always rewarding.
