Experience the island

The island of Mauritius, former "ile de France", is blessed with some of the world's most amazing beaches and breathtaking scenery.

Chamarel Seven Colored Earth

In the south-west of the country, near Le Morne Brabant, is the beautiful plain of Chamarel where you will find one of the main natural curiosities of Mauritius: the 7 colored earth.

Located on a private site, the earth of the 7 colors is a large clearing made up of dunes of earth, whose color variations form a magnificent gradient.

The site can be visited in half a day. To avoid queuing at the entrance, you can buy your tickets online.

You will then take a path that will take you to a viewpoint over the Chamarel waterfall, which is about 100 meters high. It is even possible to go down to swim there if you feel like it.

Continue your way and you will arrive at the land of the 7 colors which offers you a truly incredible and unique spectacle.

Black River Gorges National Park

Black River Gorges National Park

In the South-West of the island, lies Black River Gorges National Park, the largest natural park in Mauritius (6754 hectares).

Nature and hiking lovers will love this place. Plan to spend half a day there to hike and picnic on site.

The Black River Gorges National Park offers exceptional hikes to immerse yourself into the heart of native forest, discover waterfalls, rivers and magnificent views of the landscape below.

This forest has the particularity of sheltering more than 300 species of endemic plants and 9 species of birds endemic to Mauritius.

Remember to put on good hiking shoes because the paths are quite steep at times. The mosquito repellent cream is also not to be forgotten.

Le Morne

The hike to the top of Le Morne mountain is one of the most beautiful excursions you can do in Mauritius. Allow about 3 hours round trip with adapted shoes.

The ascent offers exceptional views over the entire south of the island. The landscapes and colors are truly breathtaking from above.

The first part of the walk is easy and accessible to all. Then it gets harder. To climb to the top, it is very steep so stay safe.

We can say it: it's downright perilous so make sure you are not afraid of heights and accustomed to physical effort.

At the top, you have an incredible panoramic view of the island and the ocean.

Le Morne Mountain

Le Morne Brabant Beach

Located at the foot of the majestic Le Morne Brabant mountain, which is listed as a World Heritage UNESCO, the public beach of Le Morne is known for the beautiful beach with white coral sand and the clear water providing a beautiful visibility,  ideal for swimming and snorkelling.

What is even better at this beach is that you can get the beautiful Le Morne Brabant as background for your pictures, so make sure to take plenty.

The visibility of the water makes it a great spot for swimming or even scuba diving but Le Morne beach is also particularly famous for its wind conditions which makes it perfect for kite and windsurfing almost all year-round. If you are just a fan of relaxing and watching under the casuarinas on the beach, it is definitely worth the trip for the sight of the surfers and kitesurfers

And much more...

Ganga Talao.webp

GANGA TALAO at Grand Bassin is one of the major tourist attraction in Mauritius, attracting crowds of visitors who pray, meditate or simply enjoy the surrounding panoramic view. This includes the colossal statue of Shiva.

As an impressive sculpture, the Mangal Mahadev Statue is quite magnificent. By visiting this sacred site, you will inevitably be amazed by the gigantic statue of Shiva

The charming town of Curepipe
Located in the center of the island at more than 600 meters above sea level, Curepipe is probably the most European city in Mauritius with its cool and humid climate and its pretty colonial houses. Rare are the tourists to go here, and yet, the city conceals real cultural and historical treasures including the colonial town hall, the Royal English College or the Forest Side district and its pretty period houses.
It is also here that you will find one of the most beautiful extinct volcanoes on the island: Trou aux Cerfs.


The second most popular island in Mauritius, after Ile aux Cerfs, is Ile aux Bénitiers, a small uninhabited island located on the south-west coast.

You can spot dolphins at Tamarin Beach before heading to Crystal Rock to snorkel if you take a catamaran cruise to Ile aux Benitiers



Mauritius is best known for its calm turquoise waters and soft white sand beaches. However, deep in the south of Mauritius are rugged beaches that offer the most picturesque views!

That's exactly what you'll find at Gris Gris Beach! Despite its lack of coral reefs, it is one of the most popular places in Mauritius to experience the wild side!

Rochester falls

Rochester Falls
Located in the south of the island, Rochester Falls is a unique place to visit in Mauritius. The waterfall is famous for its rare lava cliffs refined by years and years of erosion. When visiting the south of Mauritius, Rochester Falls is definitely worth a photo stop. Every day, locals and tourists come to see this amazing landscape and some even take a refreshing swim. The water is clear and calm, but swimming is not recommended for beginners.
