Think Mauritius is all about romantic walks on the beach and candlelit dinners at plush resorts? Kriti Saraswat-Satpathy introduces you to an action-packed side of this tropical escape
Azure blue waters, white sandy beaches, and sugarcane fields welcome you in Mauritius, the place that inspired Mark Twain to pen this— “Mauritius was made first and then heaven; and heaven was copied after Mauritius.” A visit to this pristine place will leave you spellbound with its mesmerising natural beauty and the amazing activities that it offers. While this island nation is one of the most popular honeymoon destinations in the world, it is not just for those on a romantic getaway. Mauritius also boasts of adventure activities, hiking trails, and water sports for the much-needed adrenaline rush of a fun-filled vacation. We help you plan a thrilling trip to this country off the southeast coast of the African continent.
If you love long drives with the ocean on one side and green fields on the other, exploring the islands of Mauritius is a must-do. Start your trip with the North Island tour and visit Fort Adelaide, which offers a bird’s-eye view of the capital, Port Louis. From skyscrapers to mountain ranges, this spot gives you an unobstructed view of the city. For some retail therapy that includes local art and craft, head to Le Caudan Waterfront, where you can shop, drink, and eat along the harbour.
