YOUR TRAVEL ITINERARY PACKAGE

On arrival into Mauritius you will be met and assisted by our local agents, to:

Grand Gaube, on the north east coast of the island, ideally placed to visit the nearby vibrant town of Grand Bay. Take a walk through the narrow streets behind the main road and enjoy what the small local boutiques have to offer. Known for its wide variety of restaurants and its nightlife, you will immediately be drawn to this charming and exuberant village. Another picturesque village in the north of Mauritius is nearby Cap Malheureux, with its famous red-roofed church, its view of the northern islands and its important fishing community.

Trou aux Biches, shaded by casuarinas, perennially popular with locals and visitors alike. If the horizon is clear, you can appreciate the sunset from any point along the beach. Try to catch a glimpse of the “green rays” especially in the winter months when the sun’s path is more northerly and the atmosphere more able to separate the colours. But be careful to protect your eyes and don’t stare directly at the sun!

Tamarin, once a simple village inhabited by locals and fishermen, has been transformed by luxury villas, shops & restaurants. But Tamarin Bay remains a popular surfing spot with a long left-hand reef break and 10-foot swells, and a great area to ‘live like a local’. Part of the cultural landscape, the salt pans of Tamarin are a unique place to visit. Due to the dry conditions of the area, Tamarin is the ideal place for salt making. Simply stop your car on the side of the road and take a look! The nearby bay of Black River is teaming with deep-sea fishing boats, skippered by professional fishermen who have given their lives to the sea. Try your hand at fishing and see if you’re lucky enough to catch some marlin or tuna.

Belle Mare has a beautiful white sandy beach. The coastal road which follows large stretches of white sand from Palmar to Trou d’Eau Douce winds down to Grand Port right next to the sea and ends in the village of Mahebourg. During weekends and on public holidays, locals head to the beach at Belle Mare making it a great place to meet the people of Mauritius and discover their culture. Enjoy a tasty ice cream from one of the many colourful and musical ice cream vans. And for the more adventurous at heart, why not go parasailing, which gives you a magnificent birds-eye view over the turquoise lagoon.
