Best places to visit in Mauritius

When announcing your holiday to Mauritius to your friends and family, they'll call you lucky and evoke images of beaches, coconuts and white sand! Others will talk about walking, shopping and handicrafts. In fact, Mauritius has a very small area – measuring 45km from East to West and 65km from North to South.

Evaneos Travel's community of holidaymakers recommend a number of towns and villages for your trip to Mauritius. Let's start with Port-Louis, the capital city. Its vegetable market and artisan district are well worth a visit. The jewel of the Indian ocean has a number of other surprises for you: sunbathing on Île aux Cerfs, bonfire-style musical jams on Tamarin beach (which take place almost every weekend), taking children around the crocodile park in La Vanille Nature Park or even taking a trip back in time in Morne Brabant.

The small, secluded beach at La Cambuse is another must if you are seeking out peace. However, ask a local to help you find the way. Tourists looking for souvenirs before returning home head to Quatre Bornes Market.

If you'd prefer to follow your instincts, however, you won't be disappointed. Mauritius and its inhabitants will welcome you with open arms, whether you want to dance, sing, eat, swim, discover the local culture... or even just do nothing, take photos and make all your friends jealous. In any case: don't miss out! Have a good trip!
