Many of the activities available from holiday accommodation in Mauritius are water based. Catamaran trips to the outlying islands are great fun, and can be arranged from Grand Bay. Sailing holidays to Mauritius are unbeatable, with many delightful coves and inlets to be explored from the warm waters of the Indian Ocean. The scuba diving is also exceptional; again, it is the warm clear waters which make diving holidays to Mauritius such a genuine treat, with so many unbelievable things to see living on the coral reefs. Subscooters or submarine rides can also be hired. On water, windsurfing, water skiing, surfing, kite surfing and swimming make taking a holiday rental in Mauritius an ideal family holiday option. The deep-sea fishing is at its height from October until April, when huge marlin, tuna, barracuda and a range of sharks are regularly caught.

On land, horse riding in the Mont Choisy Park and trekking and mountain biking in La Nicoliere are magnificent ways to relax and see natural interior of the island. Mountain climbing, karting, kayaking and walking are other superb options to explore, and there is even an 18 hole golf course.

Of course, a holiday to Mauritius could be spent entirely on the unrivalled white coral sand beaches, especially the powder beach of Coral Bay and Belle Mare.

The apartment is massive, huge bedrooms one double and the other with two single beds - beds comfortable and air con, lovely at night corner bath and great shower lots of hot water etc a separate toilet as well as one in the bathroom. kitchen well equipped everything worked as it should etc there is secure parking for the cars, the beach is a couple of minutes walk. If your heading for this area, this is a great hassle free place to stay - if we go back again we will stay here Enjoy Simon & Denise
