Make a holiday rental accommodation or villa in Mauritius your home away from home

The North Coast of Mauritius, the ultimate island paradise, is the most developed for the demands of tourism, with many excellent restaurants, luxury self catering accommodation and a handful of bars and clubs. There is a massive amount to do, and even more to see in Mauritius, so this short article is the briefest guide to Mauritius possible!

Things to do on holiday on the North Coast of Mauritius

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.

                                                      This place is immaculate. I would recommend it to all my friends. Noella and Mala are fantastic. Always happy, and so very helpful. If we needed anything, it was never a problem. The standard of the property impeccable. It was all that we wished for and much more. It will be difficult to ever find a stay this great elsewhere, Villa Paprika has set a very high standard. Thank you all for making our stay so special.

                                                      What an absolute treat. The photographs do not do the place justice! We arrived to find a meal ready for us and cold beers in the fridge and a very warm welcome from the owner. The location is ideal, away from the hustle and bustle, perfect for small children as the water is shallow and you can sit on the deck and watch them. The views are magnificent. Linen was crisp, white and bright, the house clean and tidy. Where we preferred to cook ourselves, there is a very friendly cook and a cleaner to help out. A highly recommended place to go. We will certainly be back.

                                                      Very well kept property. Very nice owners who were very accommodating to all our request. The place was clean and they made sure that the place was cleaned everyday. Owners checked with us to make sure that we were confortable. The apartment was very spacious inside and outside seating area was nice. It was in close proximity to the beach, the downtown area and the grocery store. They were all within walking distance. Would love to go back!!! -kim M
