Places to holiday in Mauritius

Grand Bay is the most tourist orientated area of Mauritius, based on the North Coast. The north coast of Mauritius offers many excellent facilities, mainly focused on the exceptional beaches, many bars, restaurants and clubs, as well as some of the best luxury villas in Mauritius. This northern region is mostly flat, with beautiful calm lagoons, great reef diving and some good surfing beaches.

The East Coast of Mauritius offers the nicest beaches, the flagship being Belle Mare. The East coast is a great place to take a rental car and fully explore the entire island. Here, hiking, quad biking and mountain biking are phenomenal, and there are also a range of golf courses.

Things to do from your apartment or villa in Mauritius

The beautiful white coral beaches of Mauritius are world famous, and there is no reason to do anything else but sit and relax with the fine sand between your toes on a Mauritius holiday. The best beaches are Grand Bay, Belle Mare and Pereybere for bathing. However, the beaches also provide a number of magnificent sporting opportunities whilst you stay in a villa rental. Mauritius offers some of the best scuba diving on coral reefs. Although the SCUBA diving in Mauritius is best between December and March, some incredible sights can be seen at any time of year. From June until August, surfing becomes a particular highlight of beach life in Mauritius, especially from Le Morne and Tamarin beaches. Deep sea game fishing is bought to frenzy from October until April, when predators push the larger fish towards shore. Marlin, shark, tuna, barracuda and bonitos can be caught, and Mauritius holds a number of fishing records. Sailing, windsurfing, jet-skiing, waterskiing and a vast range of other activities are available on many beaches, especially Grand Bay and Blue Bay.

Inland, the Black River Gorges National Park protects the natural forests of Mauritius. Walking amongst unbelievable plants and rare bird species is a genuine treat from a Mauritius holiday villa. Another exceptional place to walk is the Ganga Talao, a lake formed in a volcanic crater in the centre of the island. Exploring the natural landscapes of forest, mountains and waterways can be enjoyed on foot, bike or canoe, and there are a range of options from tour operators on the island.

There is nowhere nicer to enjoy a round of golf either. There are three 18 hole golf course, mainly attached to large hotels in Mauritius, but the courses are open to anyone, including those staying in a Mauritius villa rental. Club, ball and caddy hire are available, and the sublime Le Touessrok Golf Course is a course everyone should play on at least once in their lifetime!

The central market in Port-Louis is the islands meeting point, and a magnificent place to stock up on local delicacies, meat and spices when taking a self catering property in Mauritius. Port-Louis is also famous for horse racing.

We arrived to a lovely warm welcome from Baby and Garçon who look after the villa and the guests impeccably and were on hand whenever we needed them. Garçon even let me use his motorbike one day! There are palm trees in the gardens, a lovely pool at the back of the villa and a large outdoor dining area where we enjoyed days and evenings relaxing with drinks and bbq's! The villa itself is amazing. As we entered through the large double doors into a huge entrance lobby we couldn't believe how big yet homely the place was! There is a grand staircase and doors to a bedroom, huge beautifully furnished lounge/dining room, large kitchen with large dining table a utility room with amazing top loading washing machine (which was a god send!) and a wc/shower room. Upstairs is equally grand with 1 huge gorgeous master bedroom with en-suite and amazing sloping ceilings and 2 or 3 more really large bedrooms (there were only 4 of us so can't remember exactly!) all of the rooms have access out onto a balcony overlooking the garden and pool. And there is another wc/shower room! We really couldn't fault a thing. Baby and garçon helped us to plan some amazing days out through their contacts at really great prices and as their guests we were treated like royalty! One day we went on a catamaran trip to explore an island where we had drinks and lunch cooked for us! We swam in the sea and snorkelled, they provided snorkels-we were even taken out on a little motor dinghy to see sea turtles swimming which was absolutely unforgettable! They also helped my family arrange a private catamaran trip for my birthday just the four of us where we watched the sun set whilst sipping champagne, again truly magical! We hired a car for the 2 weeks we were there (with the help of Baby & Garçon) and we really explored! There is so much to see on such a small island! We swam in waterfalls, visited countless paradise beaches (there are plenty in walking distance) went to a wildlife/safari park where we zip lined across gorges, walked around the incredibly vibrant capital, went horse riding, took in some history at a beautiful old colonial estate, experienced some amazing horse racing and meditated at beautiful Hindu temples to name but a few things we enjoyed!!! Honestly, at every restaurant we ate the food was good, in most cases it was exceptional and the street food is delicious everywhere! (Dohl purée a must!)

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.

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.
