Whenever people hear about all-inclusive holidays in Mauritius, they immediately think that this vacation is enjoyed by newlyweds who are on their honeymoon. This is one thing that people overlook about Mauritius; no matter how romantic the place is, it can be a very versatile destination for every kind of traveler. There are a lot of activities to enjoy whether you are traveling with a small group or by yourself, and in this article, we will take a look at some sights to see and activities to try in the island.
Soak up on the summer sun by exploring the beaches. The beautiful island of Mauritius is home to some of the finest beaches in the world such as Belle Mare Beach and La Cuvette beach. How many time have you imagined yourself basking under the sun while sipping on your favorite cocktail? The best place to live that dream is this gorgeous island! The pristine waters reflect the sky which is the bluest of the blue. This relaxing view is what awaits you when you spend your day at the beach. If you are on the extreme side, you can have a go at Mauritius’ out of the ordinary water sports like deep-sea fishing and kite surfing.
Feast your eyes on natural and man-made wonders in Chamarel. One of the attractions of this village in the Rivière Noire District of Mauritius is the Seven Colored Earths, a small patch of sand dunes that showcases literally seven distinct colors of earth. The village also features several waterfalls that is bound to enchant any tourist. If you want to get in touch with your playful side, you can pay a visit to the Curious Corner of Chamarel, a house of illusion that will give an unconventional twist and a momentary disconnect from reality to your photos.
Delight your tastebuds with Mauritius’ delectable street food. Their street food is literally a melting pot of all the cuisines you can think of-Chinese, Creole, Spanish, African, and Indian. Their dishes are bursting with colors with flavors that won’t disappoint. They are not hard to spot-you can even find some street food stalls near the beach. We suggest you try their curry-based dishes, the samosas, their version of roti (which is usually stuffed with grois pois, or butter bean curry), and even pineapples sprinkled with chili salt!
Rent a car and drive around the cities of Mauritius. If you run out of things to do (although we swear this is highly unlikely!) in Mauritius, get behind the wheel and discover charming villages and other sights to see. There are a lot of rental car services in the city, so you can easily find one that you can use for the day. The island has amazing roads that overlook the ocean, and without the city traffic you’re used to, this can easily become therapeutic. So, if you find yourself with a free day during all-inclusive holidays, you know what to do.
