In a Nutshell

Shielded from the strong winds, the north coast is popular for its calm beaches and the warm gentle breeze sweeping coconut trees. Often promoted as the place to be, Grand Baie is the heart and soul of the Northern part of the island.

The east coast offers a quiet and serene environment for those who wish to avoid the excitement of the Northern part. Hotels abound along the sandy coastline of the East.

The snaking routes in the southern part of the island will bring you through small towns and villages. The only break in our otherwise continuous barrier reefs occur in the south, due to strong currents caused by the winds blowing from the south east.

Rare birds and indigenous trees find their homes in the natural reserves, ravines and gorges of the relatively dry, wild wild west. Great place to spend afternoons by the beaches and indulge in the last rays of the Sun. Also popular for big game fishing and snorkeling.

The towns and villages on the central plateau are mostly residential areas, where the temperature is slightly cooler, like Quatre Bornes, Moka, Curepipe and Floréal.

Our central business district (CBD) and capital of the island is Port Louis, incidentally the smallest district of Mauritius. Never a dull moment in the city, with its traditional hawkers, shopping centres, entertainment and variety of restaurants.
