When Babsi and I heard of the option to visit Mauritius before our main holiday destination – Reunion – we said: ´Yeah, let’s go´.
And we spent there seven beautiful days. You can read a little bit about the island or there are some galleries just for you.
The island itself offers plenty to do and if you need a refreshing thing, just go in the cristall clear water for a snorkeling trip
The people Most of the people are indians, the rest are chineses, creoles and whites. Due to this mixture you get a lot of interesting things to discover in the villages – and if you are lucky then it’s Cavadé. A festival of the Tamils, where the people walk from a river to the temple with heavy flower-decorated sculptures – very impressive to watch
The Highlights of the Island Our favorites of Mauritius were definitly the beaches but there is more to discover:
In the south is the beautiful Rochester Waterfall, that tumbels over a cool basaltic rock. It is situated in an endless area of sugar cane. BTW, nice place for a fresh water swim.
Charamel has a beautiful waterfall and the colored earth is really beautiful – all types of brown and grey can be seen there
The SSR Botanical Garden in Pamplemouse has a really large selection of different plants. Go on a tour and you learn interessting things about spices, palms and other plants.
and don’t go to the Eureka house – it’s a touri rip off !!!
Snorkeling and where to sleep in a tent Well, we enjoyed lots of different places on the seaside for snorkling, relaxing and for the nights in our tent. For the campsites we always looked for a picnic area or a public beach …
Gris Gris – a nice beach plus a really nice picnic spot that was our first campground – no snorkling
the Southcoast – the most remote coast. No resorts and an endless beach, a nice surfspot plus good snorkeling
Le Mourne – inbetween all the resorts is a nice public beach where you sleep with the protection of the hotel-guards plus you can go for a early morning dive (6:30 for a snorkeling experience)
Flic en Flac – a long beach with a really, really good snorkeling spot and a nice option for camping right beside the police (just ask them, they are very friendly). This is also one of the few areas where you see white inhabitants …
Pereybere – the best snorkeling area we found on the island is on the right side of the bay (we started on the left and crossed the hole bay …). There are lots of cheap apparments and 2-3 places for the midday roti :)
Blue Bay – our first and our last stop near the airport has good snorkeling at the right side of the public beach plus the only area that had a sign that told us „Camp Area“, but we heard rumours that we were the first campers there since 3 years …
Food – the Roti-way Thanks to the indian people you get a lot of cheap food. besides the good samosas we really got adicted to the „Roti“ – an omlette with a spicy curry-like filling. Yummie !!!!
