This northern region is mostly flat, with beautiful calm lagoons, great reef diving and some good surfing beaches.

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!

                                                                                                      Awesome, clean and just truly luxurious. The view as mentioned is probably the best you're going to get in Mauritius, all five or six bi-fold doors open on to the balcony with the view of Ilot Gabriel, Coin de Mire and Flat Island clear in the horizon. Postcard view all day, the maid and staff are so pleasant and it's those little things which make this place special, for example my young boys got treated to free coconut water whenever they wanted. The only downfall is there's no beach but rocks but to be fair after spending 10 days on the beach with another villa I was glad not bringing in and cleaning sand everytime the kids went to the beach so it was a welcome relief for us. Seriously stunning for the price, beautiful apartment Joelle thank for having us.

We will come again! Thank you Manda and thank you Blala for your help. Peter & Uta
