Mauritius is not only an island paradise for relaxing on its stunning beaches and enjoying your All Inclusive Options in your luxury accommodation, but it is an island full of opportunities away from the beach. There are so many attractions and options available it’s hard to know where to start, so let’s have a look at these top 5 more unusual things to see and do.
Big Game Fishing
Surrounded by the Indian Ocean, this is the ideal destination to spend time on one of many Big Game Fishing trips that are available and within easy reach throughout the island. With near perfect fishing conditions, year round, this is a great opportunity to take on the challenge of the greatest fishing available in the deep seas surrounding Mauritius. You have the chance of fighting and landing some of the largest game fish available anywhere in the world with record breaking Black Marlin, Tuna, Giant Blue marlin, Mako sharks and many other species. If you catch one of the legendary Blue marlin be prepared for your angling fight of your life - these monsters of the deep don’t give in without a fight and it often takes 2 to 3 hours to land these spectacular specimens. Little can compare in angling terms with the chase and thrill of catching a huge game fish, so if fishing is your game this will be a never to be forgotten experience.
What a liberating experience parasailing offers you with breath-taking views of the wonderful lagoons and beaches of Mauritius. There are a number of locations scattered around the island which offer this incredible experience, including the North West of the island at Grand Baie and along the central east coast at Ile aux Cerfs and Trou D’eau Douce. After a short safety briefing you will be hooked up to your ‘harness and sail’ and off you’ll go from the launch pad to begin your parasailing experience; no need to worry about steering you just follow the course the boat takes. For those seeking a little extra adrenalin rush, you can go for the optional “Touch and Go” where you are dipped into the sea before swiftly continuing your flight for additional great views of the surrounding beaches and volcanic mountains in the distance.
Guided Tour of Eureka House
Fancy a day away from the beach? Then try a guided tour of the grand Eureka House. This colonial house was constructed in 1830 and is situated by the Moka River. It is a stylish Créole property constructed mainly of timber and complemented by a long veranda, offering plenty of shade from the midday sun. It was originally owned by both French and British Aristocrats in the 19th century and reportedly the largest house on the island with over 100 doors and windows. It is a fascinating insight into colonial life full of period antiques and memories from those years long since gone. The house was faithfully restored to its former grandeur in 1986 when it was reopened as a museum to the general public. The English influence can be clearly seen in the styling of the expansive gardens along with indigenous species of Mauritian palms, and mango trees. The museum and house are much liked and very popular with both locals and tourists, who visit to walk in its lush gardens and take in the wonderful scenery with no less than 4 waterfalls and vibrant river banks full of water lilies.
Adventure in the Treetops
Fancy a unique treetop adventure to see Mauritius from a completely different aspect? Then this wonderful attraction is just made for you. Located in the heart of the beautiful tropical forest of Mauritius are a number of treetop routes across Knotted ropes, Nepalese footbridges and lifelines that offer the adventurer the opportunity to roam effortlessly through the tops of these magnificent trees in complete safety. You are safely attached to a secured lifeline by safety equipment designed to allow the adventurer a great deal of freedom, but at the same time not detracting from the fun of the experience. There are several viewing points along the trails offering stunning vistas of Piton Mountain, Charamel Valley and the Black River Nature Reserve.
Swimming with Dolphins
This is a fabulous experience that leaves people elated at the joy of swimming with one of man's best loved sea creatures. The 2.5 hour experience begins with a short introduction to the types of dolphins you are likely to encounter, their behaviour and procedures to follow when swimming with these amazing and remarkable animals. There is no finer place in the world to enjoy this encounter; the crystal clear, warm waters of the Indian Ocean surrounding the Island of Mauritius. It is one of the most rewarding encounters you are ever likely to have, coming face to face and interacting with this majestic yet powerful creature in the comfort of its natural habitat.

Mauritius in the beautiful Indian Ocean
Located 1,200 miles off the south east coast of the African continent, in the beautiful Indian Ocean, is the island nation of Mauritius. This volcanic island chain emerged from the depths of the ocean some 8 million years ago. The island is encircled by a disjointed ring of mountain ranges varying in elevation between 300 m to 800 m. From the coastal plains and stunning beaches the topography raises to the central plateau, reaching an elevation of 670m.This diverse range in topography and rich volcanic soils are some of Mauritius’s greatest natural assets with beautiful tropical fauna and flora in the coastal plains to rich and diverse forests in the upland areas.
Mauritius is an idyllic setting with its stunning white sandy beaches, azure coloured lagoons, dramatic mountains and lush tropical vegetation. The diversity of the island is complemented by the diversity of its peoples with a mix of African, Chinese, Indian and many Europeans and has a result many Mauritians are multilingual speaking Creole, French and English which makes it a great location for tourists to interact with the friendly local populace. This colourful cultural diversity is seen everywhere on the island and is most obvious in the islands cuisine with something to suit all palates: spicy curries, noodles, European dishes and a plethora of fish dishes, which one would expect from an island surrounded by one of the world’s richest oceans.
This tropical paradise offers the tourist unrivalled luxury, attractions and activities that other destinations can only dream of providing. The coral white beaches and turquoise coloured lagoons are protected by a huge coral reef that encircles most of the island except for the southern end. The beaches and warm shallow lagoons are amongst some of the most spectacular and stunning anywhere in the world - a mecca for diving, swimming, snorkeling and deep sea fishing beyond the reef. For a change from the stunning beaches and luxury accommodation, head for the central mountain plateau with its cooler climate, dramatic mountain scenery, lakes and numerous ancient volcanic craters or spend a day in the capital city of Port Louis and admire its chocolate-box colonial architecture.
When is the best time to visit?
Due to its location the weather is pleasant all year round and the Indian Ocean never cools so swimming is perfect whenever you choose to go. However, here are a few things to consider before you make your mind up. Summer in Mauritius is between November to April when temperatures are at their highest and showers are more common. Peak season and consequently the most expensive time to visit are during the northern hemisphere’s winter months of December and January. It is a beautiful time of the year when the island is transformed into an unbelievable spectacle of colour with the tropical blooms in full glow, but this is also the time when tropical storms can occur.
Top Tip: If you like the warmer temperatures delay your vacation until February, March or April when accommodation rates are lower or even better still visit during Mauritius winter months of May to End of November when you can avoid the hottest temperatures and get the cheapest rates available. This time of year is also ideal for exploring the beauty of the island, walking in the stunning interior away from the summer heat.
