Mauritius is not unique because of its sand, beaches and clear water, it is rather a country with an overabundance of almost everything. Whether you are into nature, adventure, history and archaeology, food, or simply looking to visit with your newlywed, family, or friends, the island always has something pleasurable for everyone including the most cynical individuals. Some of the reasons why you should visit the island include:
Diving, which is one of tourists’ favourite water sports, offers an amazing experience to divers. This island activity brings you closer to the multicoloured marine life, bright corals and even shipwrecks from the 18th and 19th century. Whether as a certified diver or not, there is always a diving activity available to you.
Non-certified divers usually opt for the less complicated diving sites or get the required diving certification on-site. Other options available for those in love with the sea are catamaran tours, speed boat tours, and hopping onto a traditional boat.
The dolphin cruise is another interesting activity that typically commences before sunrise – early in the morning. Fac and the Tamarin Bay are renowned as the best Mauritian beaches for spotting the dolphins and also offers the luxury of swimming with the creatures in the open sea.
Visiting Port Louis
The capital city of Mauritius, Port Louis, boasts several colonial architectural masterpieces of French origin as well as entertainment venues, world-class restaurants and hotels, and exciting malls. The city is also host to the oldest racecourse, Champ de Mars, in the Indian Ocean.
The National Snack – Dholl Puri
It is a famous snack across Mauritius. It is typically a flatbread sandwiched with ground yellow split peas. It is normally taken along with the Mauritian chilli paste – Mazavaroo that is usually spread on most local dishes. This treat is a must-have while on the island!
