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.

The location was not correct on the map, nonetheless apart for a few issues we enjoyed the stay, it was very quiet and peaceful as there were no other resident staying except for dogs barking incessantly at early evenings.The pluses: small and compact , nice little kitchen, splash -pool just outside the front door. The negative: 20-25 minutes walk to nearest shop, need transport if one does not fancy cooking. Flic en Flac itself is beautiful, best beach but I may a bit bias as I come from near there. It has Most important services, money changers, car hire, pharmacy, supermarket, good public transport, police station and of course many eating places furthermore, doctors and clinics, and a state run health centre ( my wife had excellent care after she fell 2 years ago, requiring 4 stitches on her forehead,she was seen as soon after we arrived and we were out within 30 minutes) cannot beat this even in Europe. We hope to return to this apartment again next year.
