Mauritius will absolutely charm you with its ultimate, crystal-clear waters. Explore the island's well-known beaches, including Mont-Choisy, Grand-Baie, Le Morne, Belle Mare, and Blue Bay, to name a few. Swimming in the warm lagoon, building sand castles with the kids, or simply relaxing and sunbathing are just a few of the various activities you can enjoy on the beach.  And while you are relaxing, enjoy the local street food of Mauritius like dholl puri (wrap with curry), fried noodles, and boulettes (dumplings), or refresh yourself with some ice cream, 'glaçon râpé (grated ice with syrup), or coconut water.

Make your vacation memorable by booking a dolphin watch excursion near Tamarin Bay. Admire the splendid marine scene, dolphins swimming, multi-coloured fish, and magnificent corals.  Indulge yourself in the fascinating marine world at Odysseo Oceanarium Mauritius, a favourite family spot with its cutting-edge aquarium, home to a number of marine species like sharks and multi-coloured fishes. It also encloses a food area for a quick bite and a souvenir shop.


Set aside a day to explore the amazing wildlife of Mauritius in places like Casela Nature Park and La Vanille Nature Park. Discover the wonderful flora and fauna at Casela while enjoying exciting activities like quad biking, truck safaris, and even interacting with animals like giraffes, zebras, and more. At Vanilla Nature Park, admire the huge crocodiles and tortoises, and also explore the wonderful collection of butterflies. 

After a day of fun-filled adventure, enjoy some more family time at the Caudan Waterfront, relaxing and admiring the night scenery. You can also eat at one of the numerous food outlets or enjoy some shopping.
