Mauritius Holidays

Labelled by Mark Twain as “heaven on earth,” Mauritius holidays live up to the hype: this is where luxury-seekers, honeymooners and travelling families find their place in the sun. A luminous island that promises escapism and breakaway fun, holiday in Mauritius to discover tropicana romance, barefoot luxury and castaway adventure.

Claim your corner of paradise and explore the unspoiled beaches that outline the Mauritius coastline. Dive into fluorescent coral reefs and snorkel the shores of Balaclava Beach. Catch the breeze and windsurf at the island’s southeast coast, or catch the Sega beat dancing under the moonlight at Pointe d’Esny.

Relaxation is at the heart of a holiday in Mauritius. Dig your toes into powder-soft sand at Trou Aux Biches, indulge in some retail therapy at Grand Baie, savour the island’s sun-drenched atmosphere at Tamarin Bay or savour Mauritian rum at Chamarel.

Make your castaway dreams come true and head to the original getaway island on a Mauritius holiday from South Africa.
