Mauritius has a sterling reputation as one of the world’s ultimate beach holiday destinations and it’s not hard to see why. The volcanic formation of the island means a dramatic backdrop of densely forested, emerald hills sweeps down through sugar cane plantations to golden, sandy beaches and crystal clear Indian Ocean waters with glimmering reefs. A paradise for families and a haven for honeymooners.

However, you can do much, much more than simply lie on your outsize sun-lounger sipping a mint mojito before sloping offer for a spa treatment.

First and foremost there are water sports aplenty with almost every resort offering complimentary waterskiing. Many non-motorised water sports are often included too so you can try your hand on a Hobie Cat, go windsurfing or spend an hour or two kayaking in just offshore. Adrenalin fiends may want to head to breezy Le Morne to one the best kite-surfing spots in the world. More leisurely pursuits include glass-bottomed boat trips (particularly fun for kiddies) and pedalo rides.

Food lovers will be in heaven with flavours from Malaysia to South Africa via the Indian Sub-continent being a feature of many hotel menus. Freshly-caught seafood is of course a staple and while many hotels offer a choice of restaurants and cuisines you can always request a booking at a nearby resort for a change of scenery or to try out something different one evening.

The sugar cane plantations mentioned above naturally provide for the island’s rum-making industry. If you’re interested in finding out more you can take a tour to see how rum is made from field to bottle at the Rhumerie de Chamarel and enjoy a shot or two to round things off!

For a family day out full of fun Casela Park offers a great choice of activities. There is something for all ages of children (and their parents) from canyoning and quad-biking to segwaying. Buddng Tarzans (and Janes) will love flying high above the forest canopy on a 400-metre-long zip-line!

And, finally, Mauritius would not be Mauritius without its fabulous golf courses. Named by IAGTO as the Golf Destination of the Year 2016 for Africa and the Indian Ocean, it has a dozen or so excellent courses to choose from, many of which are world-class.
