Once at the crossroads of the African and Arabian trade routes, the island of Mauritius encapsulates a melting pot of cultures. Port Louis, the capital city, is the perfect blend of modern and colonial cultures. You can stroll through bustling outdoor markets, enjoy the Caudan Waterfront with its mix of colonial architectures or visit one of the many museums the city has on hand. The vibrant art scene is captured in the Blue Penny Museum right on the city's waterfront. Depending what you are after, you can escape the city life for a more relaxing or adventurous holiday on the island. The island is home to pristine white beaches and clear Indian Ocean waters with all the classic water sports on offer. For the more adventurous drive across the spectacular island to see visions in saffron saris walking gracefully under the shade of banyan trees and Hindu temples covered in deities rising out of fields shoulder high with sugar cane. We recommend taking the historic tea route across the island visiting plantations en route or perhaps swim with dolphins from a luxurious catamaran. Explore the Bel Ombre Nature Park by quad bike. With a climate of warm sunshine, the occasional short sharp shower to bring out the scent of the frangipani, a diet of tropical fruits and the freshest seafood, holidays to Mauritius have all the ingredients for a wonderful experience.

Best time to travel

May - December


Mauritius experiences a hot and humid summer from December to April and cooler, drier conditions from May to November. Under the influence of the prevailing south-easterly winds, the east coast is slightly cooler and wetter than the west. The winds can bring a welcome relief to the east coast in the hottest summer months but are more blustery here in July and August. The cyclone season lasts from December to March. Although a direct hit is rare, cyclones far out at sea can bring some days of squally rain.

Guest Testimonial

Each guide was very helpful and knowledgeable too. The hotels you selected were all beautiful with excellent service – we were particularly impressed with the wonderful Lodge in PingAn and the modern and welcoming Temple House in Chengdu. The train between Shanghai and Beijing was also a great journey – thank you for thinking to organise the Red Cap porter service as well!
