Finding the Best Mauritius Points of Interest

Where is Mauritius? Mauritius is a tropical island paradise in the Indian Ocean. Diving, sail-boarding, snorkeling, sailing, hiking, mountain biking, rum, sugar, and spice; Mauritius has so much to see and do, a week was barely enough! When we started planning a trip to Mauritius we discovered that public transportation was available and fairly easy to use, but could be a bit challenging to get to some of the more out of the way places.

Of course, you can go to Mauritius and never leave your hotel. There are some amazing all-inclusive resorts that have more than enough to keep you busy for the week. And all of the hotels are more than happy to book excursions for you to take you to any part of the island. However, we decided a rental car was the way to go. Having a car made all the difference for us since we love to explore, stop and take photographs or just get out and walk for awhile. That freedom means everything to us. It’s a bit harder to go to Mauritius on a budget, but if you are interested here’s some great tips in this post.

We’ve compiled a best of Mauritius video to share the sights of the island. Not everything is technically shot through the windshield, but our rental car did take us everywhere we wanted to go. For example, one of the most colorful things to visit are the many temples in Mauritius! Enjoy our visions from the tropical island of Mauritius!

Once you watch the video, you’ll want to go to, so check out some of the best hotels in Mauritius and start planning your trip today!

  1. I will be going to Mauritius in the not so distant future. My neighbours are relocating there and have lived there several times over the last ten years. It sounds (and looks) like a tropical paradise. They said we should come and visit.

    1. Rhonda, You should go. While you are there, you can tack on Reunion and/or Seychelles. They are all in the same area. I wish we’d tacked on Reunion…it’s all mountain.

  2. Nice work with the video. Seems you are getting pretty comfortable with this process. I’m in awe that you managed to drive and navigate whilst recording!

  3. I’ve recently seen a lot of advertisements for Mauritius and my husband mentioned a long time ago he’d like to go! Maybe we should consider a tropical holiday one day! #wkendtravelinspiration

  4. I hope to one day visit Mauritius – my niece recently married a man from there, and some of the pictures he’s shown us are AMAZING!

    1. Barb, I would not say that it’s deserted. There are plenty of natural areas, but also plenty of towns, cities. It was great!
