“The world is a book and those who do not travel read only a page”
It’s time to revitalize your body, soul, and mind by taking a holiday to Mauritius. Wondering why Mauritius? After seeing Mauritius for the first time, Mark Twain said that it is a replica of heaven on Earth. It is a country that matches the spirit of every kind of traveler. Today, we are going to give you the top reasons that will surely make you fall in love with the country.
List of 8 Reasons to Visit Mauritius
1. Jaw-dropping Beaches
If you are a beach person, then Mauritius is a holy grail for travelers like you. This island offers a variety of beaches. The north beaches are known for the classic white sand/azure water kind of beaches that adorn the brochures.
Moving south, the beaches become wilder and are suitable for surfers. Going west, you will find empty and long beaches with golden sand. The east beaches are more secluded and small, best for finding some quality time in one’s own company.
2. Intact Nature
Nature and Mauritius go hand-in-hand as the place is home to multiple extinct flora and fauna. Here, you will find a 300-year-old botanical garden called “Sir Seewoosagur Ramgoolam Botanical Garden”. It is home to a giant lily pond and many native and endemic plants. Another enticing site is Trou aux Cerfs in Curepipe – a volcano crater surrounded by houses and very popular among joggers and walkers.
If you are looking to spend some time in the lap of nature with family, then Black River Gorges National Park is the perfect destination for you. Other protected forests include Plaine Sophie and Bras d’Eau National Park.
3. Thrill the Soul with Adventure Sports
Want to add some adrenaline rush to your holiday? Head to adventure sports in Mauritius. Yes, you read it right. Go skydiving for a memory of a lifetime. Other sports that you must try include kayaking, windsurfing, quad bike rides, parasailing, buggy rides, and many more. Reading already makes you dive into imagination, so how about booking Mauritius holiday packages today?
4. Indulge into Exotic Food
Good food and great places are the divine combination for a memorable trip, and food in Mauritius is one such food paradise in the world. The beauty of Mauritian cuisine is that it is a beautiful blend of Chinese, African, Indian, and French influence. You must try not only good restaurants but also its street food, which is a popular option. Our recommended list includes daube, fish vindaye, or chicken or fish kalia.
Another recommendation is the national dish of the country: dholl puri, a fusion of paratha and dal kachori. This puri is stuffed with yellow split peas served with vegetable curry and other toppings. Combine it with sweet kheer for a perfect meal of the day.
5. Grand Bassin
Lush greenery embraces the lake with a tight hug, but this beautiful lake has an Indian connection. It is believed that the water beneath the lake communicates with the holy river Ganga. Whether you wish to visit the place for religious belief or not, this place will surely steal a part of your heart with its enchanting beauty. When in Mauritius for a holiday, never miss this beautiful gem.
6. Don’t Say NO to Shopping
Your trip is incomplete without a souvenir from Mauritius, and the country offers abundant shopping options, both from shopping malls and street markets. Flacq Market has vibrant and colorful stalls filled with vivid clothing, accessories, and herbal tea, as well as vanilla specialties. It is open on Wednesdays and Sundays from 9:00 am to 6:00 pm. Our next destination is Le Craft Market, which is filled with intricately detailed baskets, exquisite woodwork, and beautiful glass souvenirs. Be sure to try the locally made Mauritian rum. For mall shopping, visit the Le Caudan Waterfront mall, which is one of the oldest malls in the country and a tax-free haven for shopaholics. Other shopping destinations include Phoenix Mall, Quatre Bornes Market, Grand Baie Market, Bagatelle Mall, and Grand Baie La Croisette.
Cost is an important consideration when finalizing a holiday destination, and Mauritius offers world-class resorts at a very competitive rate, making it an ideal destination for efficient spending. Most businesses accept Master and Visa cards, so you can enjoy the trip without the risk of carrying too much liquid cash. The average daily budget, including lunch and travel, is around £50 per person.
