Things to do

Mauritius is at her best on the water on a sunny day. Don’t miss: Isle au Cerf.

Go for a sail on Blue Bay in the South.   Lunch or Dinner at La Bougainville restaurant. If you are staying at Shandrani, take the boat across to La Bougainville.

Grand Bay in the north – on a nice day try a trip to Flat Island. . There are many wonderful hikes and walks to be discovered on the Island.

For a drive – circumnavigate the Island from Vacquios to Flack and down the south west coast. You can either take the road around the south coast to Plaisance, or climb up the mountain and across the middle to Curepipe There is a restaurant for lunch or afternoon tea (but not dinner) at the top of the climb, with compelling views. At Curepipe there are a number of Boat shops selling beautiful scale models of period sailing ships, for which Mauritius is famous.

If you want to stay at a private guest house (****) on one or the nicest beaches on the island - at Point Desney near Blue Bay - then try Dorrette Herchenroder at 230 631-9987, or next door ring Ingrid Tinkler, on 230 631-9688 - but not during the local winter as it is too windy on the beach at this location.
